Lee Daniels developing Fox drama ‘Mason Dixon’ that tackles race and class

Lee Daniels and 20th Century Fox Television are putting forward a new drama called “Mason Dixon,” which will tackle issues of race and class.

The show follows a black politician’s wife and a “good ol’ boy” who form an unlikely bond after their spouses are caught cheating. Their alliance blends their families and shakes up a small community that is still deeply divided when it comes to both race and class.

The project is part of an overall deal that Daniels is under with Fox and is his second network sale after an untitled megachurch project. Daniels already has two other hit series on Fox: Empire and Star.
