vampire chronicles tv series amc

A potential TV series based on Anne Rice‘s The Vampire Chronicles has been searching for fresh blood for a few years now, and it looks like it’s found it at AMC. The network just scored the rights to both The Vampire Chronicles and Rice’s The Lives of the Mayfair Witches, and plans to develop TV shows and even films around both. A Vampire Chronicles TV series was previously set up at Hulu before someone drove a stake through the heart of that deal.

Jim Gaffigan Playing Toronto Mayor Rob Ford

Jim Gaffigan is mostly know for his stand-up comedy antics and being a hilarious character actor. But he’s recently turned in some solid work in indie dramas and thrillers such as Light from Light, Them That Follow, and Chappaquiddick. Soon he’ll stretch his dramatic chops with a little bit of dark comedy by leading his own limited series at AMC that will see him playing late, former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, who was infamously caught smoking crack cocaine during his re-election campaign and had a reputation for being a substance abusing party guy.

Jeff VanderMeer’s novel Annihilation was adapted into an Alex Garland feature film that captivated critics but was largely ignored by major audiences. But perhaps his work will achieve greater success on the small screen. AMC is developing a TV series based on the Borne novels by the Annihilation writer, following a “scavenger in a ruined city of the future destroyed by an evil company [who] discovers a mysterious creature.”

New The Walking Dead Spin-Off

Back in October, when the first trailer for the new The Walking Dead spin-off was revealed, the series still didn’t have a title. All we knew was that the series would focus on two young female protagonists as part of the first generation to come-of-age in the wake of the zombie apocalypse as they venture out into a world that is still full of danger and undead. Now a new teaser not only shows more of the series, but it finally gives the series a title. Read More »

The biggest compliment one can pay El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie is to say that it doesn’t detract from the legacy of one of the greatest television shows of all time. We knew we were in good hands with Vince Gilligan. Better Call Saul has proven that he, as a showrunner, knows how to play in the Breaking Bad sandbox again without destroying the castle he built before. Now, for the first time, Gilligan has stepped behind the camera as a movie director as he checks back in on the character of Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) and shows us what happened to him following the events of Breaking Bad.

El Camino also takes us on a trip down memory lane with Jesse, flashing back to some unseen episodes from his past as he embarks on a new Neo-Western adventure in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The stakes this time are simple: Jesse needs to get the hell out of Dodge. The police have flagged him as a “person of interest” in a local massacre and he’s also dealing with post-traumatic stress. What follows is a two-hour Netflix movie with all the event-filled turns of Breaking Bad. It’s an epilogue to the series that occasionally detours down some narrative cul-de-sacs where familiar faces lurk. Buckle your seatbelts and let’s take our own spoiler-filled ride through El Camino.

El Camino A Breaking Bad Movie

The last time we saw Jesse Pinkman, he was finally a free man, albeit one with enough baggage and damage to last several lifetimes.

We’ll soon find out, as it has been revealed that the Breaking Bad movie will arrive this October on Netflix. The movie is called El Camino: A Breaking Bad movie, and there’s a teaser announcing the release date too.
