AMC Orders Giamatti’s “Lodge 49” To Series

AMC has given a straight-to-series ten-episode order to the drama “Lodge 49” which actor Paul Giamatti will executive produce.

The modern fable set in Long Beach and follows a deadbeat but charming ex-surfer named Dud who joins a fraternal order hoping to reclaim the simple, happy lifestyle he lost when his father died.

Through the Lodge and his newfound connection with the other members, Dud comes to discover the missing sense of purpose in his life and confront his deepest fears and greatest hopes.

Jim Gavin (“Middle Men”) wrote and created the series, and will executive produce with Giamatti, Dan Carey and Peter Ocko. Ocko will serve as showrunner.
