Always on the look out for new and interesting ideas for TV series, AMC has started development on The Terror, an adaptation of the 2007 bestselling novel by Dan Simmons. This is an interesting series for AMC to take on, but I’m not sure if it will work as something that would air for a number of years. Set in 1847, it follows the crew of the Royal Naval expedition searching for the Northwest Passage in the Arctic. Things get a little hairy when they come across a monstrous predator, but this isn’t just a polar bear. This is a creature unlike any you have ever encountered.
According to Deadline, The Terror is being executive produced by Alexandra Milchan of Scott Free TV and Television 360. Also executive producing is David Zucker, Ridley Scott, Scott Lambert and Meghan Lyvers, while David Kaiganich will be penning the script.

AMC has put a TV series adaptation of Dan Simmons' 2007 novel "The Terror" into development.
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.

One of the most unwavering networks –beyond CBS- is The CW. The mini network and its stable of cult like genre shows have been able to sustain good ratings in the all-important 18-34 demographic, at times beating last place NBC. So far, for the 2012-13 TV season, they’ve only canceled one show, the medical drama Emily Owens, MD. Now, the network has announced early pick-ups of freshman superhero show Arrow, The Vampire Diaries (which is headed into season five, with a potential spin-off called The Originals may be added) and Supernatural –which heads into season nine, becoming the networks longest running show behind Smallville. Beauty and the Beast is also likely to be renewed as well. But other shows like 90210, Nakita, and The Carrie Diaries remain questionable network until the network heads can look over the upcoming pilots.
