  • GORDY: Pitching to AMC.

Graham Gordy, the Little Rock screenwriter behind "War Eagle, Arkansas," is close to selling a TV show to AMC. The cable network bought the pilot and, according to Gordy, is near making a deal for the entire show.

Here's how The Hollywood Reporter described it last week: " '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 Sandra Bullock in an Oscar-winning role in "The Blind Side," is on board as executive producer.

    It's hard to call any SEC schedule "favorable," to be sure, but Chad Morris' first hand of 12 games at the helm of the Arkansas football program this fall will be roughly the equivalent of a full house: The Razorbacks draw conference titans Alabama and LSU in Fayetteville, their only true road games are in Auburn, Ala.; Fort Collins, Co.; Starkville, Miss.; and Columbia, S.C.; and they won't be drawing the presumed best of the East Division.
