AMC’s Breaking Bad is the second cancer-related TV series to have a full season DVD set released this week. The series would seem, on the surface, to be about a terminally ill middle class guy trying to provide for his family after his death – through cooking up a unique version of crystal meth. Instead, it’s about how that basically decent man – a high school chemistry teacher who could have been much more – has a knack for making exactly the wrong decisions and is devolving from decency to hardcore criminal.
If you missed out on the series premiere of AMC’s The Killing [Sundays, 10/9C], you can now view the two hour debut online, or on AMC, this evening, at 8/7C [followed immediately by episode three]. Shot at a very measured pace, The Killing follows the investigation of the murder of Rosie Larson. Each episode represents one day in the investigation – and the series follows three through lines: the actual investigation of the murder; the effect of the murder on the girl’s family, and the effect of the investigation on a political campaign that is tangentially connected to the murder.
AMC’s The Killing premieres with a two-hour episode on Sunday, April 3, 2011 and, if this trailer is any indication, it looks like it will match the quality of Mad Men and The Walking Dead.
AMC has quickly become a go-to network for original drama. Shows like Mad Men, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead are considered to be among the absolute best series on television – even the net’s one early cancelation, Rubicon, got rave reviews and garnered a fanatical [if a hair too small] audience.
On April 3rd, 2011, AMC premieres The Killing – a series about the investigation of the murder of a young girl in Seattle. Each episode will cover one day in the investigation. The official press release follows the jump.
When it came time to select a distributor for the home video release of its The Walking Dead, AMC decided to go with North America’s top distributor of the horror genre – Anchor Bay Entertainment.
Details follow the jump.
Given that it never achieved the kind of ratings gotten by Mad Men and Breaking Bad, I guess it makes sense that AMC, after getting extraordinary ratings for The Walking Dead, would choose to cancel its suspenseful conspiracy series, Rubicon.
AMC’s third series [and first cancelation], Rubicon was smart, finely textured, richly detailed and mesmerizing. And now it’s gone. A statement from the network says, "Rubicon gave us an opportunity to tell a rich and compelling story and we’re very proud of the series. This was not an easy decision, but we are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such a phenomenally talented and dedicated team."
Wow, Sunday night Television is getting packed. We have Football (usually the week’s marquee game), HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and now AMC joins the party with their amazing new dense series The Walking Dead. I’m not a fan of Zombies, always found them really boring, so it’s a good thing AMC’s new series is about how people live in a Zombie infested world and not just Zombie killing 101.
A police car pulls into what seems to be an encampment of some sort and a man in uniform gets out, holding a gas can. He walks through the encampment until he spots a young girl [from behind]. When he calls to her, she turns to face him – and he sees that she is partially decomposed. Drawing his sidearm, he shots her in the head. Roll opening credits. Welcome to The Walking Dead [AMC, 10/9C].
I have to admit that one of things I was excited about covering at Comic Con was the new AMC horror/drama show, The Walking Dead which is based on the graphic novel of the same name written by Robert Kirkman. The Walking Dead tells the story of life following a zombie apocalypse. It follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, traveling in search of a safe and secure home. Andrew Lincoln (Love Actually, Teachers, Strike Back) will portray the lead role of Rick Grimes while actor Jon Bernthal (The Pacific, The Ghost Writer) will portray the character Shane, who worked with Rick in the police department before the zombie disaster. Other cast includes Laurie Holden (The Shield), who plays Andrea, one of two sisters who join the survivors of the zombie plague, Steven Yeun as Glenn, an expert scavenger and Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break), who plays Rick’s wife Lori.
