Robert Redford’s Sundance Channel is developing a new scripted series built around a fictional leader of the National Rifle Association called “Cold Dead Hands.” The lead character is Early “Trip” Thibodeaux, described as “the nationâ€™s most powerful gun-rights advocate and the de facto CEO of the gun industry.”
The creator is Scott Gold, who’s spent the last 15 years as a staff writer for the Los Angeles Times. He’s a Hollywood newbie, with just a couple of writing credits for the CBS drama “Under the Dome.” Heâ€™s working with veteran TV producer Tony Krantz, who was looking for an â€śimportant and current issueâ€ť not explored on network TV. Gold told The Washington Post they won’t shy away from the controversial issues of gun violence and the NRA:
“This is a divisive issue, no question about it,” executive producer Scott Gold told us Wednesday.”We won’t be shy about that. It’s also an issue that speaks to what it means to be American - and there are a lot different versions of that.”
You can bet there will only be one version of it given in this movie — liberal Hollywood’s.
