The sports drama will be a four-quadrant feature in the same vein of Oscar Best Picture winner Crash. The story will take us through the last three weeks of the NFL regular season, following the lives of fictional players, coaches and their families.
Flame Ventures' Tony Krantz (Sports Night) will be directing from a script written by Ron Shelton (Bull Durham). No casting details have been released.
Production is scheduled to begin after Super Bowl XLVII.
