AMC is in the very early stages of developing a new football drama called The Real All Americans.

It's based on a book about the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Carlisle, PA and their amazing Native American college football program.

The football program at the school had an amazing record of 167-88-13 and spawned Olympian Jim Thorpe and famed coach Glenn "Pop" Warner.

Right now, Tommy Lee Jones is in discussions to direct the pilot.

This is a subject close to his heart as he played for Harvard's football team in the late 60s and is actually of Cherokee descent.

Sounds like a great idea!

We can't wait to see it right between Mad Men and The Walking Dead.
