Cinemax orders pilot from Graham Gordy

Score! Cinemax has ordered a pilot for a new dramatic series scripted and executive produced by Little Rock's Graham Gordy.

The hourlong show, "Quarry," focuses on a a Marine sniper returning from Vietnam in 1973, according to Variety.

"Upon his return, he finds himself shunned by those he loves and demonized by the public. Combat-hardened and disillusioned, he’s recruited into a network of contract killers and corruption."

Michael D. Fuller, Gordy's longtime writing partner, is also onboard as executive producer and writer.

Fuller and Gordy are part of the writing team for Ray McKinnon's new series "Rectify," set to debut on the Sundance Channel April 22. They'd previously come close to getting a pilot order from AMC for a college football drama (maybe they'll revisit it if the Cinemax project is a success; so much potential!). Of course, Gordy, who wrote a column for the Times before he got busy with "Rectify," has been in the business for a while. He co-wrote "The Love Guru" with Mike Myers, wrote "War Eagle, Arkansas" and has a bit role in Jeff Nichols' "Mud." Fuller's done work on "The Soup."

John Hillcoat, director of the "The Road" and "Lawless," is among other executive producers. He'll direct the pilot.
