AMC Orders "The Terror" Anthology Series

2 March 2016 1:58 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

AMC is moving forward with a new anthology series based on Dan Simmons' best-selling 2007 novel "The Terror". Ridley Scott's Scott Free and the network have been developing the project for a few years, and now it's finally happening with ten hour-long episodes ordered for a 2017 premiere.

The book is an acclaimed fictional spin on the true story of Sir John Franklin's lost expedition in the late 1840's. Two ships, the Hms Erebus and Hms Terror, traverse well below freezing conditions in the Arctic in an attempt to forge the Northwest Passage. Both ships were lost.

The novel follows the fictional scenario in which Franklin and his crew are plagued by starvation, scurvy, mutiny and cannibalism. They are also stalked across the bleak Arctic landscape by a monster called a Tuunbaq which randomly picks off crewmen.

David Kajganich ("True Story") will write and also serve as co-showrunner with Soo Hugh »
