AMC Visionaries: Robert Kirkman’s Secret History of Comics – a six-episode deep dive into the stories, people and events that have transformed the world of comic books – will premiere on Sunday, November 12th (11/10C) before settling into its regular timeslot, Monday, November 13th (10/9C).
Preacher (AMC, Mondays, 9/8C) has been all over the map in terms of following the story as set out in the comics – lots of changes, big and small, have made it as fresh for fans of the comics as for newcomers to the story.
One of the show’s most interesting facets is how it sometimes nails moments from comics exactly – and there are a few such moments in the second season finale.
Alex Godman (James Norton), the English-raised son of Russian exiles with a mafia history – has spent his life trying to escape the shadow of that criminal past, building his own legitimate business and forging a life with his girlfriend Rebecca (Juliet Rylance) but when his family’s past murderously returns to threaten them, Alex is forced to confront his values to protect those he loves.
McMafia is a new eight part fast-paced global thriller set to premiere next year.
AMC has cast Brent Jennings, Sonya Cassidy, Linda Emond, David Pasquesi, and Eric Allan Kramer Join as series regulars in its new series, Lodge 49.
The series stars Wyatt Russell (above) as Dud, a likable ex-surfer who attempts to maintain his positive outlook on life while still reeling from the death of his father, the collapse of the family business, and any semblance of the idyllic middle-class life he knew.
