The Future of AMC

The news of showrunner Glen Mazzara leaving The Walking Dead over creative differences with the network last week is hardly a surprise:  Hell on Wheels just hired its third show runner in three years, and the tense Breaking Bad and Mad Men negotiations of recent memory are ugly blemishes for a network with an increasingly unstable relationship with its creative minds. Many have suggested that AMC merely stumbled upon these amazing series and will fade as quickly as they appeared – their recent dips into reality television with Small Town Security and Comic Men certainly won’t be viable replacements, nor will the much maligned, rain-soaked The Killing. They have three interesting pilots on the horizon (including a sci-fi series called Thunderstruck) but if AMC’s reptuation continues to sour, they’re going to have a hard time replicating the success of the last three years.
