Cinemax Plans “Quarry” TV Series

Cinemax has given a pilot order to “Quarry,” a 1970s-set drama project based on a series of novels by “Road to Perdition” author Max Allan Collins.

The story 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 (“The Road,” “Lawless”) is set to direct the pilot from a script by Graham Gordy and Michael D. Fuller.
