MARCH TO MADNESS (FX, New!) - Don Cheadle ("Crash") has booked a new drama at the cable channel which "chronicles the glory and the seedy side of college basketball." Pete Segal ("The Longest Yard") is attached to direct the potential hour from a script by Joel Silverman. The trio will then executive produce alongside former college basketball coach Dave Miller and Segal's producing partner, Michael Ewing. As for specifics, "March" will revolve around "a corrupt college basketball program that cheats its way to the NCAA basketball tournament [as] told through the eyes of the college coach, whose idealistic approach to the job has slowly been eroded by the compromises he's forced to make."
