'Homeland' Director Sells The Eye 'Second Sight'

The talent behind Showtime's "Homeland" continue to reap the rewards from the success of the series. Yesterday, we reported that the co-creators Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa had sold the FBI drama "Anatomy of Violence" to CBS. Today bares news that The Eye network has, appropriately enough, bought a new project from the series' director Michael Cuesta entitled "Second Sight."

Michael Cuesta

The new drama is based on an atmospheric 2000 British series of the same name. The original featured Clive Owen ("Sin City", "Children of Men") as an accomplished homicide detective gradually losing his sight. The imminent blindness carries with it the unusual side effect of heightened senses and hallucinations, which aid the detective in solving crimes. The series ran for a total of eight episodes over two seasons in the UK.

Cuesta is a veteran director and producer on numerous series in addition to the pilot and several episodes of the wildly popular "Homeland." He has also helmed pilots for "Dexter," "Elementary," and "Blue Bloods." In addition to helming the new project, Cuesta will be penning the adaptation with brother Gerald Cuesta, who he previously teamed with to write the 2007 zombie pilot "Babylon Fields." Joining the project in a producing role will be "CSI" producer/showrunner Carol Mendelsoh, as well as the original series creator Paula Milne.
