John Lee Hancock plays ball with AMC
I totally missed word that John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side, The Rookie, The Alamo) is on the verge of having a football-set series picked up by AMC. It couldn't happen to a nicer Baylor-trained former lawyer.
Here's the description via The Hollywood Reporter:
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.
You've got to wonder how much the show will be inspired by Hancock's namesake father, the Coach, who died late last year.
Could this be the next Texas-shot football show as Friday Night Lights dims? Stay tuned.
