AMC Developing Football Drama

Marisa Guthrie:

AMC is in the early stages of development on football drama The Real All Americans. Based on Sally Jenkins’ book about the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Carlisle, Penn., All Americans chronicles the school’s storied football program created by U.S. cavalry officer Richard Henry Pratt, an abolitionist and early equal rights proponent who made a harrowing journey to the Dakota Territory in 1879 to recruit the school’s first students.

Hard to decide whether to get excited or not. I still haven’t watched Hell on Wheels and I gave up on The Killing after all the bad words. I guess a period piece has worked for AMC before, but I am not super excited about the concept.
