TV’s First Illegal-Immigrant Protagonist May Be Coming to FX

Deadline reports that FX is developing a show about an illegal Mexican immigrant who works as a private investigator in L.A. Created by Changing Lanes writer Chap Taylor, it will be directed and executive produced by Rodrigo Garcia (Big Love, In Treatment, spawn of Gabriel García Márquez). Says Taylor of any possible future controversy: "In Los Angeles and in the U.S., people's lives are built on the labor of those immigrants. Our job is to tell good stories as honestly as we possibly can. If everyone is mad at us, we've done our job." [Deadline]
