Academy Award-winning director Ang Lee will tackle television for the first time, directing a pilot for a show written by the Israeli writer who created the popular drama "Homeland."

Gidi Raff's pilot for "Tyrant," about an American family caught up in a Middle East country, was picked up by the FX cable channel. FX announced last month that Lee will direct the pilot this summer.

It is Lee's first project since the "Life of Pi," Reuters reported -- Lee won the Oscar for best director.

The Israeli TV network Keshet is collaborating on the series.
