ABC Is Developing a Skull and Bones Drama


You know, the Yale secret society that all Bushes belonged to. (Maybe you remember it from the 2000 Joshua Jackson film The Skulls?) Anyway, ABC is developing The Order, a drama based on Alexandra Robbins's The Secrets of the Tomb: Skull and Bones, the Ivy League and the Hidden Paths of Power — except the series will be about a woman (that's allowed now) initiate who grows up to be an FBI officer and has to investigate her own society. They'll show the college stuff, too; they're not dumb.
