Cinemax orders 1970s drama 'Quarry'

Cover for novel QuarryCinemax is going back in time with its newest pilot order, a drama called Quarry, which is loosely based on a series of novels by author Max Allan Collins (author of Road To Perdition). The pilot is being written by Rectify scribes Graham Gordy and Michael D. Fuller and will be set in the 1970’s.

Quarry is the story of a Marine sniper who returns home from the war in Vietnam in 1973 and finds himself surrounded by a less than sympathetic community and country. The Marine is hardened by his time in combat and struggling with disillusion when he finds himself recruited into a network of contract killers whose corrupt organization spans the length of the Mississippi River.

The hour-long drama pilot will be directed and executive produced by John Hillcoat (Lawless, The Road) and co-produced by Anonymous Content. Joining Hillcoat in executive producing should the series move forward will be Keith Redmon (Awake), Steve Golin, David Kanter and Matt DeRoss.  

The pilot order for Quarry comes swiftly behind the news that Cinemax has decided to renew freshman drama Banshee for a second season. Do you think that the pilot for Quarry will be picked up? Would you be interested in watching this series on Cinemax?
