  1. Lee Pace to Topline AMC Pilot 'Halt & Catch Fire': Set in the early 1980s, Halt & Catch Fire dramatizes the personal computing boom through the eyes of a visionary, an engineer and a prodigy whose innovations directly confront the corporate behemoths of the time. Their personal and professional partnership will be challenged by greed and ego while charting the changing culture in Texas’ Silicon Prairie. Pace will play the visionary, the confident and powerful Joe MacMillan. Once a superstar salesman at IBM, MacMillan recently departed under mysterious circumstances only to resurface at a Dallas tech company. Davis plays the prodigy, Cameron Howe, a talented but volatile computer programming graduate student whose aggressive exterior has everything to do with protecting a vulnerability underneath. AMC Studios is producing the pilot, with Johnson and Melissa Bernstein executive producing.
  2. It sounds like the Saul Goodman-centric Breaking Bad spinoff is going to happen. The title for now is Better Call Saul!, because it has to be. The AV Club says the series will be a BB prequel, so no guarantees Saul survives the last 3 episodes of the parent show.
  3. (A&F links to Mad Men (2007- ), Breaking Bad (2008-2013), The Prisoner (2009), Rubicon (2010), Hell on Wheels (2011- ), The Walking Dead (2011- ) and The Killing (2011-2013).) This show will be based on historian Alexander Rose's book, Washington's Spies. Here's history.com's entry on The Culper Spy Ring: British forces occupied New York in August 1776, and the city would remain a British stronghold and a major naval base for the duration of the Revolutionary War. Though getting information from New York on British troop movements and other plans was critical to General George Washington, commander of the Continental Army, there was simply no reliable intelligence network that existed on the Patriot side at that time. That changed in 1778, when a young cavalry officer named Benjamin Tallmadge established a small group of trustworthy men and women from his hometown of Setauket, Long Island. Known as the Culper Spy Ring, Tallmadge's homegrown network would become the most effective of any intelligence-gathering operation on either side during the Revolutionary War ... Tallmadge recruited only those whom he could absolutely trust, beginning with his childhood friend, the farmer Abraham Woodhull, and Caleb Brewster, whose main task during the Revolution was commanding a fleet of whaleboats against British and Tory shipping on Long Island Sound. Brewster, one of the most daring of the group, was also the only member whom the British had definitely identified as a spy. Tallmadge went by the code name John Bolton, while Woodhull went by the name of Samuel Culper ... Austin Roe, a tavernkeeper in Setauket who acted as a courier for the Culper ring traveled to Manhattan with the excuse of buying supplies for his business. A local Setauket woman and Woodhull's neighbor, Anna Smith Strong, was also said to have aided in the spy ring's activities. Her husband, the local Patriot judge Selah Strong, had been confined on the British prison ship HMS Jersey in 1778, and Anna Strong lived alone for much of the war. She reportedly used the laundry on her clothesline to leave signals regarding Brewster's location for meetings with Woodhull ... The Culper Spy Ring has also been credited with uncovering information involving the treasonous correspondence between Benedict Arnold and John Andre, chief intelligence officer under General Henry Clinton, commander of the British forces in New York, who were conspiring to give the British control over the army fort at West Point ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnSmrfqs3EM&feature=youtu.be
  4. New upcoming show on AMC, sort of a sci fi conspiracy thriller about a man that survives a plane crash, and investigates the cause of it. Not sure why they're calling it the first time AMC has done Sci Fi since Walking Dead is fairly sci fi/post apocalyptic. Either way, looks good.
  5. According to this source, AMC is working on an all new tv show with a supernatural twist, following in The Walking Dead's footsteps. The Terror follows an expedition in 1845 led by Captain Sir John Franklin, on the ships Erebus and Terror to find the Northwest Passage in the Arctic, and find their way through. Based on the actual disappearance of the real crew during that time period, the novel (and show) introduces the supernatural element of a monster called a Tuunbaq, who stalks the expedition and terrorizes them. But true to how The Walking Dead is more about the characters than the zombies, so too does The Terror seem to be more about the men on the expedition than the monster. They are plagued by scurvy, starvation, mutiny and cannibalism as much as the monster. Sounds to me like a show worth checking out. Very interested.
