'Minority Report' changes Washington Redskins' name on show

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Fox's new show "Minority Report" has settled the longtime debate over whether the Washington Redskins should change its name.

Set in Washington, D.C., 50 years in the future, the NFL team has been renamed the Washington Red Clouds in tribute to the famed Indian chief in American history.

In this TV world, it's 11 years after where the 2002 film left off and pre-crime arrests are banned.

Steven Spielberg, who directed the movie version starring Tom Cruise, is now an executive producer on the show, which stars Stark Sands, Wilmer Valderrama, Nick Zano and Meagan Good.

It premieres Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. EDT on Fox.
