Oscar-winning director Robert Zemeckis has teamed with the creator/executive producer of A&E’s drama The Glades, Clifton Campbell for Billy Ray, a drama series project that has landed a put pilot commitment at Fox. Written by Campbell and to be directed by Zemeckis, Billy Ray is described as a character-driven drama about a family thrown into chaos when the child who was stolen from them as a baby is returned 16 years later after being raised in rural Alabama by someone with a questionable past. Campbell and Zemeckis executive produce with Jack Rapke and Jackie Levine. There is no studio yet for the drama, which will be co-produced by Compari Entertainment. This would mark Zemeckis’ first series in 15 years and the first series-directing gig since the cult HBO anthology Tales From The Crypt. Campbell spent the past several years working on his series The Glades, which was recently cancelled by A&E after four seasons. It was the first A&E scripted series to stick and helped establish the network’s scripted brand.
