GUNSIGHTS (AMC, New!) - Chris Provenzano ("Justified") is developing a new drama at the cable channel based on Elmore Leonard's 1979 novel of the same name. Said effort, set in 1893, "centers on two tough men and friends, scout Dana Moon and Army man Brendan Early, who used to work together, including a mission chasing an Apache chief into Mexico. Now, the two former partners are on the opposite sides of a conflict between a mining company and a scattering of settlers on an Arizona mountainside: Apaches, Mexicans, and former 10th Cavalry regulars. Brendan is employed by the mining company attempting to drive the settlers out of their homes, while Dana is an Indian agent, defending them." Provenzano penned the script and will executive produce via his new overall deal with AMC Studios. (Deadline.com)
