Matt Piedmont (Saturday Night Live) is on board to direct the half-hour pilot, which tells the story of Hugh and Ebenezer Moody, brothers whose contribution to history in colonial Boston has been overshadowed by Revere. Executive producers Ethan Sandler (Crossing Jordan) and Adrian Wenner (My Boys) will also star.

In addition to Sex and the City, Livingston’s TV credits include Boardwalk Empire, The Practice and Band of Brothers.

We Hate Paul Revere will shoot in Los Angeles in August.

    “I’m Sorry
    I Can’t

    Call me a history nerd, but: It’s a little disappointing that the REAL historical figures (Dawes and Prescott) who ARE routinely overlooked in favor of Revere are even getting overlooked to feature in a TV show about people who are overlooked in favor of Revere!

    Yes, Sex and the City’s Ron Livingston. Nothing he’s better known for out there.
