Eddie Izzard may have struck out with "The Riches," but that's not enough reason for FX to not let him have another turn at bat.

He's back with a new drama project where he'll play a disgraced former Congressman. After a sex scandal costs him his job, he becomes an aggressive political fixer. Job duties entail he blackmail, steal, and use guns in a threatening manner. I'm sure he'll also find a way to end up in drag on the series. Cheeky monkey. (Deadline)
