Cinemax Orders Contract Killer Drama Pilot Based On Max Allan Collins’ ‘Quarry’ Books

Cinemax Orders Contract Killer Drama Pilot Based On Max Allan Collins’ ‘Quarry’ Books

Cinemax has given a pilot order to Quarry, a drama project based on the series of novels by Max Allan Collins (Road To Perdition graphic novel). Written by Graham Gordy and Michael D. Fuller, Quarry is set in the 1970s and centers on a Marine sniper who, upon his return home from Vietnam in 1973, finds himself shunned by those he loves and demonized by the public. Combat-hardened and disillusioned, he’s recruited into a network of contract killers and corruption spanning the length of the Mississippi River. John Hillcoat is set to direct the pilot, co-produced by Anonymous Content. Hillcoat, Gordy and Fuller, all Anonymous clients, executive produce with Anonymous’ Steve Golin, David Kanter, Matt DeRoss and Keith Redmon. The Quarry pilot order comes on the heels of Cinemax renewing its freshman drama Banshee for a second season. Both Banshee and Cinemax’s first original primetime series, Strike Back, which had been picked up for a third season, started off with direct-to-series orders. Last year, Cinemax gave a pilot order to drama Hurt People, whose feature was put in limbo when star/executive producer William Petersen exited.

My good friend, Graham Gordy, who I posted about writing his new series, Rectify, in another thread is a writer on this. He's extremely excited.

FYI:

Just talked to my buddy, and he said the lion's share of the pilot is set in Kansas City, which is pretty cool. Said that may change, though, depending on where they end up actually shooting.

hope it doesn't change. This sounds like it could be really good.

Just a head's up that this has been wrapped finally and will be coming in early 2016. They went ahead and approved an 8 episode series instead of the pilot.

I had said that it's mostly set in KC, but I know they did most of their filming in Louisiana... so not sure if the KC thing still holds true. I haven't gotten a chance to talk to Graham in a while because he's been pretty busy with the filming. I think they may have reset it in Memphis, though (sorry KC).

Reminds me I haven't watched the second season of Rectify yet. First season your friend was involved with writing was very slow burn, character driven and I rather enjoyed it.

Bumping this. Release date set back to September. The writers just got named by Variety as 10 writers to watch in 2016.

http://variety.com/gallery/tv-writer...#!6/undefined/
Michael D. Fuller and Graham Gordy- “Quarry”
Patience paid off for Gordy and Fuller. The writing duo pitched their ’70s-set thriller “Quarry” to HBO executives back in 2012, and it will finally premiere this fall on Cinemax.

The slow burn fits an intriguing series that combines the character-driven elements of SundanceTV’s critically acclaimed “Rectify” [on which Gordy and Fuller were writers for the first season] with the gritty action angle Cinemax has turned into a brand.

“We sparked to the tremendous possibilities of this character returning from war and dealing with the effects of that trauma at a time when there wasn’t an acronym for it,” Fuller says of the show’s hero, Vietnam vet Mac Conway [played by Logan Marshall-Green in a breakout performance].

“We were very interested in the era, the early ’70s,” Gordy adds. “The original idea was that this was the best era for feature films of anything we knew.”

“Quarry” is inspired by a series of novels by Max Allan Collins that Fuller found surfing Amazon’s “readers also liked” recommendations. A fan of Collins’ work, including “Road to Perdition,” Fuller took the material to Gordy and the pair discovered the rights were available. Collins ultimately wound up scripting one of the first season’s eight episodes.

Arkansas native Gordy and South Carolina native Fuller met in college through a mutual connection at NYU’s playwriting program. They quickly bonded over a love of college football and television [their first TV project was an AMC pilot set in the world of college ball, that ultimately didn’t go to series].

Fans of TV’s new golden era touchstones like “The Sopranos” and “The Wire,” they’re bringing those influences to “Quarry.” As Fuller say, “It was intriguing to us to say, ‘What if you did something in the way “Mad Men” uses the era so deftly to be a commentary on where we are now, and you have that driving criminal narrative [of] “Breaking Bad” that makes you lean up in your seat because you’re invested in the characters and their journeys.’”
