Sundance Channel is working on a National Rifle Association drama with journalist and “Under the Dome” writer Scott Gold, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
Called “Cold Dead Hands,” the drama is “set against the backdrop of the NRA and the ongoing debate over Americans’ right to bear arms. It focuses on the fictional Thibodeaux family, led by patriarch and NRA topper Trip,” the story says.
Gold will write the script and executive produce the project, which is from Tony Krantz’ Flame Ventures. Gold has worked at the Los Angeles Times since 1999, the piece adds.
"The debate over gun violence and gun rights has many sides," Krantz said, "and in order to help protect lives, promote gun safety and build a national consensus on the issues, we want to respect and understand all sides of this story."
