ESPN has partnered with Ben Silverman, Full Circle Entertainment and R.J. Cutler on “Bound for Glory,” a reality series about a sort of real-life Bad News Bears. The cable network has ordered eight one-hour episodes of the show, about a once-great high school football team that gets a bigtime makeover, complete with former NFL linebacker Dick Butkus as coach. “Glory,” which combines elements of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” with the feel-good feature “Rudy,” will follow a small Pennsylvania town’s team and surrounding community as producers come in and prep them for the upcoming season.
