The good news: AMC has greenlit a television series based on Dan Simmons‘ The Terror, an acclaimed historical horror novel that could make for thrilling TV. The weird news: it is reportedly an “anthology series” and I literally have no idea what that could possibly mean in this context. Seriously.

This past weekend, The Walking Dead returned to AMC to finish out the sixth season of the hit zombie drama series that will apparently continue until the end of time. So what better time to deliver another round of The Walking Dead Honest Trailer, this time focusing on everything from the fourth season up until the midseason of the sixth season. I’m not sure why they wouldn’t just wait until the end of the sixth season, but whatever. Be prepared for a staggering amount of walking and pretty much the same story told for six seasons in a row. And obviously, beware of spoilers as well. Read More »

Apparently Kevin Smith has a nice relationship with AMC. Smith’s Comic Book Men has been on the network for around four years now. I’ve never watched it, but it’s done well enough for AMC to give the writer-director another program. Smith and actor Greg Grunberg (Heroes) will co-host a talk show, called Geeking Out (working title).
Find out more about the project below.

Preacher was never going to make it to television without undergoing its fair share of changes. Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s blasphemous and brutal comic series is very much a product of the ’90s, a story that gives political correctness a big middle finger being stomping its face in with a steel-toed cowboy boot. It’s certainly not unadaptable, but it features characters, storylines, and images that feel specifically built for a comic book, where things like “budget” and “good taste” don’t have to exist. To adapt Preacher is to recognize the spirit of the thing – to bottle its acerbic wit, grotesque slapstick, and surprising humanity – even if it means taking the story in a separate direction.
Now, a piece of casting news has revealed just how far from the source material writer/producers Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin and planning to stray. Academy Award nominee Jackie Earle Haley has joined the cast as a villainous character whose presence in the show’s first season defies the comic’s original storyline in a huge way.

Some of the best stories being told today are happening on television. It’s a new Golden Age for the flickering box, at least on cable networks, and the AMC has another promising project on the way to the United States thanks to the BBC.
The Night Manager is a miniseries adaptation of John Le Carré‘s novel of the same name, and Tom Hiddleston takes the lead as a former soldier working as a night manager at a hotel who is recruited by British Intelligence to complete an undercover mission to help take out an arms dealer. However, it may be even more risky than originally thought as The Night Manager trailer teases some potential double-crossing from Hugh Laurie. Watch it below! Read More »
Ridley Scott is a busy man. He always has a few movies on his plate, including an adaptation of The Cartel and possibly a remake of The Prisoner, and his company also produces a healthy amount of movies. Scott Free Productions is currently working on Marvel, a TV adaptation of George Pendle‘s nonfiction book Strange Angel. And no, it doesn’t have anything to do with Marvel Studios or Marvel Comics.
Learn more about the Ridley Scott TV show after the jump.

With exactly one month to go until its return, Better Call Saul has finally, at long last, released the first bit of new footage from season 2. Jimmy McGill is still Jimmy McGill at this point, not Saul Goodman, but you can see a bit of good old Slippin’ Jimmy slipping out. And no wonder, given what we saw of his life last season. Watch the first Better Call Saul season 2 footage after the jump. Read More »

Unfortunately for zombie lovers out there, The Walking Dead won’t be back this year until February 14th. That should make for one bloody Valentine’s Day, especially since series creator Robert Kirkman has promised there will be a lot of death when the show comes back from the midseason break. And for those of you who just can’t get enough of the comic book adaptation, there doesn’t seem to be any end to the show in sight.
AMC executives appearing at the Television Critics Association panels this week said that they aren’t even thinking about the end of the series and are focused on keeping it alive as long as the comics “are firing on all cylinders.” Find out more below! Read More »

AMC is really doubling down on the “gruesome horror adaptation” thing. With The Walking Dead still shambling along and the adaptation of the sure-to-be-controversial Preacher waiting in the wings, the network has decided to adapt Joe Hill‘s excellent novel NOS4A2 into a series. That is one hell of a horror trifecta right there – nothing says AMC like flesh-eating carnage, blasphemous comic book adaptations, and shows about immortal creeps stealing the souls of innocent children.
Hit the jump for everything we currently know about the NOS4A2 TV series.
