Exclu: AMC is near a deal to acquire a drama from “The Blind Side” director John Lee Hancock.
“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.
