Fox Developing Modernized "Hamlet" TV Show

Joining the CW's recently-announced modern take on the classic Alice in Wonderland? Apparently, Hamlet. According to Deadline, Fox is developing a modern-day adaptation of the William Shakespeare play called America's Sons. It's being described as "part juicy soap, part paranoid political thriller set in Washington DC," following the events after "a beloved presidential hopeful dies in a tragic car wreck...a renegade JFK Jr. type returns home to D.C. to discover his father’s death was no accident — and he makes it his mission to untangle a complicated web of family secrets, expose the truth and ultimately avenge the murder." 

The series will be executive produced by Paul Redford, best known for his work on The West Wing and Dirty Sexy Money
