MUMBAI: Production house AMC is developing a period
football drama entitled The Real All Americans.
The series is based on Sally Jenkins' book of the same
name about Pennsylvania's Carlisle Indian Industrial
School and its football programme created by U.S. cavalry
officer and abolitionist Richard Henry Pratt.
The football programme had an outstanding record and
numbered among its participants coach Glenn "Pop"
Warner and Olympic athlete Jim Thorpe.
Lee Jones is in talks to direct the pilot, while Nicholas
Meyer is writing the script.
The Carlisle Indian Industrial School was also the subject
of the 1992 PBS American Experience documentary In
the White Man's Image.
The last film on football was Friday Night Lights.
