AMC Cancels ‘Shootout,’ Plans ‘StoryMakers’ Specials

Jan 27, 2009  •  Post A Comment

AMC has canceled its Sunday morning show “Shootout” featuring Peter Bart and Peter Guber, but said it plans to bring the duo back to host a series of primetime specials called “AMC StoryMakers.”
“StoryMakers” will feature top actors joining Mr. Bart and Mr. Guber in a roundtable discussion of entertainment industry headlines. The first special is scheduled to air Feb. 13 at 8 p.m., as excitement builds over the Feb. 22 Academy Awards. Two other specials are planned for this year.
“AMC wanted to create a venue for two of the industry’s most influential personalities to talk to the people who are out there making the stories we love,” said Joel Stillerman, senior VP of original programming, production and digital content for AMC. “The roundtable format allows us to present something that is much more about honoring the craft of acting and filmmaking in a conversational setting.”
“Shootout” has been on AMC since 2003. The last original episode of the weekly series appeared last month. The show continues to air in reruns.

  1. Please tell me where I can by DVDs of Sunday morning shootout.
    Also, the schedule for the next airings of Storymakers. thank you! JW

  2. In cruising the brick-and-mortar stores I’ve found two double-DVD sets of Sunday Morning Shootout episodes. Both of the online addresses on the DVDs are no longer active, but if you Google Sunday Morning Shootout DVD, you’ll find bunches of retailers ready to sell you volumes. Good hunting.

  4. I’m excited to be finally posting online after all these years. There really is no mystique (sp) about it, is there? I just dropped by your blog and had to write. I’m a recent college grad, journalism major if you must know, and I absolutely love photography. I’ve got my website up but it’s nothing to brag about yet. None of my stuff’s been posted. Soon as I figure out how to do that, I’ll spend the afternoon posting my best pictures. anyhow just thought I’d drop a line. I hope to return with more substantial stuff, stuff you can actually use.

  5. I really like the colors here on your blog. did you design this yourself or did you outsource it to a professional?

  6. I am not in fact sure if greatest methods have emerged nearly stuff similar to that, other than I am certain that your great work is obviously identified. I was thinking if you offer any membership near your RSS feeds as I would be extremely concerned.

  7. What a release to determine a page that can be at last in fact importance reading! I’ve been looking for all-around in relation to this issue but men and women just put rubbish posts, or brief empty article. I have observed a couple vids on youtube but it’s now the same as reading a good article.

  8. Wow, amazing blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you make blogging look easy.
