AMC Sets Writers Room For Three Shows

AMC has announced that they are opening writer’s rooms for three new projects which are all under consideration for potential series orders.

Using the non-pilot model that has yielded both the recent “The Son” and the upcoming “Lodge 49,” scripts for several episodes and a detailed look at a potential first season will be drawn up for each show before the network decides whether to move to a straight-to-series order.

The three shows are “NOS4A2” from Jami O’Brien (“Hell on Wheels”), “Pandora” from Sam Vincent & Jonathan Brackley (“Humans”) and “Silent History” from Claire Carre & Charles Spano (“Embers”).

“NOS4A2” is based on Joe Hill’s novel about a young woman with a secret gift for finding things reluctantly pulled into tracking down a superhuman child killer. “Pandora” is a global mystery-thriller that follows three converging storylines in the wake of advanced malware dismantles encryption across the Internet. “Silent History” follows the birth of a generation of children born without the ability to create or comprehend language.
