AMC Developing Dramedy ‘Aim High’ From ‘Falling Water’ Co-Creator, ‘Longmire’ Writer (Exclusive)

AMC is developing a series that hails from Blake Masters and Boo Killebrew, Variety has learned exclusively.

The series, titled “Aim High,” is described as a dramedy centered around a Southern family. Masters and Killebrew will write and executive produce the potential one-hour project.

Masters most recently co-created the USA series “Falling Water” with Henry Bromell in addition to serving as executive producer on the series. He also created the Showtime series “Brotherhood” and developed “Law & Order: La.” Killebrew wrote multiple episodes of “Longmire” after the show moved to Netflix in its fourth season.

The series is under development as part of AMC’s content partnership with Charter Communications. Under the agreement, which was announced in April 2017, Charter will have an exclusive initial window in the U.S. to the co-produced content for use on its own platform, while AMC Studios will retain subsequent rights, including the right to distribute the content internationally.

‘Falling Water’ & ‘Berlin Station’ Review: Ambitious Dramas Succeed With Smarts

With the debuts of USA Network’s Falling Water on October 13 and Epix’s Berlin Station on October 16, the battle to be a cable contender just became more interesting. As I say in my video review above, both series — Gale Anne Hurd and Blake Masters’ on the home of Mr. Robot, and the Olen Steinhauer-created and Bradford Winters-showrun spy thriller, respectively — succeed admirably in planting flags for their channels, though with very different approaches.

'Falling Water' Delivers Dream Imagery and a Dense Plot

Falling Water, a new fantasy drama on USA, is asking a lot of its viewers. It's offering up some stunning visual imagery, but it's wrapping that imagery around a difficult-to-understand plot that, according to most reviewers, makes the series frustrating and not exactly exciting.

The series involves several characters, including a designer, a cop, and a corporate security expert, who lead wildly different lives in different places around the world. The thread that connects them is that they're all having extremely vivd, disturbing dreams, and we begin to realize quickly that they are somehow connected by the similarities in their dreams.

The series was created by the late Henry Bromell (Homeland) and Blake Masters (Brotherhood), and it is produced by Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead). With a pedigree that includes such

‘Falling Water’ Was Dreamed of Long Before ‘Inception,’ Producer Says
Don’t think of “Falling Water” as “Inception, Part Deux.” USA’s upcoming thriller, about a group of people linked by a mysterious dream they all share, might sound a lot like “Inception,” the hard-to-parse 2010 movie smash starring Leonard DiCaprio. But executive producer and co-creator Blake Masters told reporters Wednesday at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour that the show actually sprang from a drunken conversation that he had in 2006 with his late writing partner, Henry Bromell.
