According to The Hollywood Reporter, former New York police detective-turned-producer Sonny Grosso has inked a development deal with AMC to develop a limited series based on his experiences with his late partner Eddie Egan on the famous French Connection case.

Grosso and his producing partner Larry Jacobson will executive produce the project through their Grosso Jacobson Communications Corp. Talks with potential writers are under way.

The events that led to the now-famous 1961 drug bust were chronicled in William Friedkin's Oscar-winning 1971 feature The French Connection, which was among the 25 films that the Library of Congress just named to the National Film Registry.
