What could go wrong?

ABC lands Texas militia drama.

The network has bought drama pitch Founding Fathers, from Di Bonaventura Pictures TV and ABC Studios. Written by feature scribe Rich D’Ovidio (Exit Woods, Thir13en Ghosts), Founding Fathers is described as “Donnie Brasco set in the world of Texas militias.” It centers on Nick Keating who, after serving a third tour in Afghanistan, returns home to find his small Texas town under the control of a militia group led by his older foster brother.

A mainstream media network ... doing a drama about an American militia group? Gee, what could it POSSIBLY be all about? Anyone wanna take a stab at the subjects broached on this show?

I can only imagine... and given that it's on ABC, I fully expect it to be biased in some way shape or form, based on the premise.

Hube this is great news. The series will be absurdly ham handed, insulting and denigrate Texans as backwoods hicks and racists. This will do nothing but hurt Obama's re-election efforts. More please.
