Ruben Fleischer

An eco-terrorist thriller from Becky Hartman Edwards and Ruben Fleischer has landed at Fox.

Hailing from 20th Century Fox TV, “Far From the Tree” is an hourlong drama that centers on an all-American family whose lives are turned upside down when their eldest son is involved in a large-scale eco-terrorist attack. Project will follow the family and siblings as they deal with the FBI, media and community while trying to figure out how one of their own became so radicalized.

Hartman Edwards will pen the project and exec produce alongside Fleischer. Her credits include ABC Family’s “Switched at Birth,” NBC’s “Parenthood” and HBO’s “Sex and the City.”

Both Fleischer and Hartman Edwards are repped by UTA. Fleischer is also repped by attorney Warren Dern at Sloane Offer, and Hartman Edwards by Nina Shaw at Del Shaw.
