AMC used its Television Critics Association presentation to make a few announcements, most notably the green lighting of a James Cameron produced documentary series about science fiction.
The six episode “James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction” will explore the evolution of science fiction from its cult beginnings in pulp to the engine for blockbuster film, television, novel and video game success.
Throughout, Cameron and his contemporaries debate the merits, meanings, and impacts of the works that influenced them. It will debut on AMC in 2018.
Speaking of debut dates, AMC also announced a bunch of premiere dates including the Pierce Brosnan-led ten-episode “The Son” kicking off on Saturday April 8th, the third season of “Better Call Saul” on Monday April 10th, and the second season of “Into the Badlands” on Sunday March 19th. Check out the trailer for the latter below:
