Watch: First Teaser For AMC's Next Hit Series Hopeful 'Halt And Catch Fire' Starring Scoot McNairy & Lee Pace

31 March 2014 7:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Remember "Low Winter Sun"? Yeah, that didn't quite work out, but luckily for AMC, they've got a few more cards up their sleeve to replace the now finished "Breaking Bad," and the soon to be finished "Mad Men," as the next big hit on the network. And what's most intriguing to us is "Halt And Catch Fire." Highlighted in our feature End Of The Golden Age? 12 Shows Hoping To Be The Next "Breaking Bad", this one features a pretty great ensemble of character players—Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy, Kerry Bishe and Mackenzie Davis—with the story set in 1983, in Silicon Prairie (Texas' answer to Silicon Valley), following the adventures of tech start-up during the early days of the computing boom. Will it be too niche of a premise to find a wide audience, or just quirky enough to gain a following? We'll see, but we dig the first teaser trailer »

'Sons of Anarchy' Ep Dave Erickson joins 'The Walking Dead' spinoff

27 March 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The upcoming "The Walking Dead" companion series has landed Dave Erickson as a co-writer and executive producer. Erickson comes to the spinoff from AMC's "Low Winter Sun," which was canceled in December.

Before that he served as co-executive producer and writer on several episodes of FX's "Sons of Anarchy" between 2008 and 2011. Erickson's other big credit was on the short-lived "Cantebury's Law."

Back in January, AMC chief Charlie Collier said the network was taking their time in developing the companion series, noting they wanted to "do it right." The primary goal is to make sure whatever they come up with doesn't diminish "The Walking Dead." 

"What we want to do is find something that everyone involved feels as passionately about as being a unique vehicle and unique enterprise as compared to the original series," he said. »

'True Detective': A theoretical conversation about the show, starring Rust Cohle and Martin Hart

2 March 2014 7:00 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

After a mere six episodes, HBO’s True Detective has become the breakout TV sensation of 2014, with ratings ascending each week to match the snowballing buzz over the show’s mystery (whodunit?) and its various teasing references (Yellow King? Carcosa?). In turn, the last couple of weeks has seen the rise of an oppositional force — not quite a backlash, but rather, a series of counterarguments, focusing on the show’s female characters (nude, young, incapable of resisting the balding charms of middle-aged detectives) and the grander possibility that the show’s various philosophical musings amount to a whole lot of hot air. »

AMC Networks Shares Hit All-Time High As Investors Look Ahead To New Shows

27 February 2014 1:04 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Looks like CEO Josh Sapan‘s comments to analysts addressed whatever concerns investors had about AMC Networks’ mixed Q4 earnings report this morning. The company’s stock price opened slightly down but quickly, and steadily, appreciated throughout the morning: It closed +6% at $73.75 after touching $74.22, passing the previous all-time high, on November 6, of $73.39. AMC Networks‘ Q4 report startled some company watchers with its $52M charge for losses tied to the cancellation of Low Winter Sun and The Killing. The charge “was obviously worse than what we modeled and could include more than just these two shows,” MoffettNathanson Research’s Michael Nathanson says. There was also some concern that it might indicate problems that could affect AMC’s upcoming series Turn and Halt & Catch Fire. Sapan wouldn’t give analysts specific metrics for assessing the performances of these shows and, in November, the Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul. While “they’re all well-done shows, »

10 Unforgivable Mistakes That Ruined Great 2013 TV Shows

27 February 2014 5:41 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Showtime

Imagine you’re meeting someone for a first date; you don’t really know this person that well, but you’ve heard good things from others, so you figure you’d give it a try. The date starts off well: the other person is polite, friendly, interesting, and towards the end of the date, the two of you are swapping stories over dessert when suddenly and inexplicably, your date starts yelling, complaining loudly and basically just not being a sound person.

It seemed like a non-sequitur, and you feel like he/she might calm down after a bit, but you now see that this person is not actually the great person you thought he/she was. This date is not the kind, enthralling person you imagined, but a lazy, upsetting waste of your time. Sometimes that moment where the date goes off the rails doesn’t come until the »

AMC Networks’ 4Q Net More Than Doubles On Ad Sales

27 February 2014 4:27 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

AMC Networks said its flagship AMC outlet continued to boost results, as advertising demand increased, primarily for original programming at the network best known for programs like “The Walking Dead.”

The company’s net income in the fourth quarter rose to $35.4 million, or 49 cents per share, compared with $15.2 million, or 21 cents per share, a year earlier. Wall Street had expected earnings to come in 29 cents higher per share.

Fourth-quarter revenue rose 18.7%, or $69 million, to $435 million, led by a 19.3% rise in revenue at the company’s national cable networks, which also include IFC, Sundance and We. Revenue at the national networks came to about $404 million. Advertising revenue at those networks rose 31% to $205 million.

The company recorded a charge of about $52 million in the fourth quarter to account for the write-down of programming assets. In a research note issued Thursday, Bernstein Research analyst Todd Juenger estimated the write-down accounted for about 5% of programming inventory. »

Update: AMC Networks Reports Mixed Q4 Results Helped By ‘Walking Dead’ But Hurt By Write-Off For Cancelled ‘Low Winter Sun’ & ‘The Killing’

27 February 2014 4:25 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Update, 5:48 Am: Cancelled series Low Winter Sun and The Killing were responsible for the writedown, CEO Josh Sapan told analysts in a conference call. “We were not happy with the performance of Low Winter Sun,” he says. Previous, 4:25 Am: It will be interesting to see whether investors consider the pay TV networks company’s Q4 results a glass half full, or empty. It reported net income of nearly $35M, +130.2% vs the last three months of 2012, on revenues of $435.2M, +18.7%. The top line comfortably beat the $418.9M that analysts expected. But earnings at 49 cents a share missed forecasts for 77 cents. The results include a $52M charge “related to the write-off of programming assets.” (For some reason AMC Networks doesn’t identify them in this Am’s release.) The charge tarnished the otherwise apparently strong results at the main National Networks unit that includes AMC, WEtv, IFC, and SundanceTV. Helped »

'True Detective' Recap: Breaking Up Is Hard to Do

23 February 2014 7:05 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Like its lead characters, True Detective does a certain number of things really, really well—and other things really, really poorly. And like them, it can have a hard time knowing which is which.

In tonight's episode, "Haunted Houses," this struggle got the spotlight, and the results weren't pretty. Gone was last week's latticework of complex and compelling narratives regarding the pivotal moment in Rust Cohle and Marty Hart's supposed takedown of a serial killer, the one where it looked like it all went right but in reality it all went horribly wrong. »

'Twilight' Director Catherine Hardwicke Makes the Film-to-Cable Move

11 February 2014 9:44 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Production designer-turned-director Catherine Hardwicke hit 'Twilight' out of the park, but was not given time by Summit Entertainment to continue with the series. They rushed the second one into production with Chris Weitz at the helm, by far the worst of the series. Hardwicke's follow-up "Red Riding Hood" was a misguided and undersupported effort, and now like many women helmers, Hardwicke has done the sane and rational thing--moved to television.  After directing various series including "Low Winter Sun" Hardwicke is partnering with Jason Blum to executive produce the series "Eye Candy," which MTV has picked up for ten episodes from the pilot she directed, adapted by Emmy Grinwis from the R.L. Stine novel.  The series stars singer/actress Victoria Justice (TV's "Victorious") as a reclusive blogger and hacker who investigates terrorist plots and suspected killers and becomes the target of a dangerous cyberstalker--who might be one of the men she is. »
