Ball's new untitled, multi-racial family drama has been picked up straight to series at the premium cable network, according to Deadline. The show centers on a philosophy professor, his lawyer wife, their biological child and their three adopted children from Somalia, Vietnam and Colombia.
The seemingly perfect portrait of a modern American family starts to show some cracks though when one of their children begins seeing things that no one else can see. HBO describes the series as a "tragicomic meditation on the complicated forces at work on us all in America today."
Ball is of course a popular entity at HBO. In addition to Six Feet Under and True Blood — both signature shows for the network — Ball executive produced Banshee for four seasons on HBO's sister network Cinemax. He's also helming The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, starring Oprah Winfrey and set to debut in 2017.
The cast and premiere date of Ball's new series are still pending.
