Little Rock writer near a deal with AMC for college football drama

Graham Gordy, the Little Rock screenwriter behind "War Eagle, Arkansas," is close to selling a TV show to AMC.

Here's how The Hollywood Reporter describes it:

"The Wreck," set in the world of Southern college football, centers on the high-profile head coach of a once-legendary team that has just finished a losing season. The school gives the coach one last chance to turn the team into winners or he's fired.

Gordy co-created the drama with Michael Fuller, a writer for "The Soup." John Lee Hancock, fresh from directing everyone's mom's favorite movie, "The Blind Side," is on board as executive producer.

AMC bought the pilot and, according to Gordy, is near making a deal for the entire show.
