AMC Developing Colonial Comedy

Dec 12, 2012  •  Post A Comment

AMC, which has found success with period shows such as "Mad Men," is turning to Colonial times for a comedy called "We Hate Paul Revere," reports Deadline.com.

The show tracks two brothers who live in Colonial Boston and, as the title suggests, aren’t fond of the local activist Paul Revere, the story notes.

The project is written and executive produced by writer-actors Ethan Sandler and Adrian Wenner. Since meeting at Northwestern University, the pair have been performing and acting together.

The effort reflects AMC’s desire to expand into comedy after building its drama series, the piece adds.

  1. Would people tolerate a show called We Hate Martin Luther King Jr.? Paul Revere is considered a hero by many, as is MLK. Why does AMC choose to alienate and attack one group of people? Will they make a comedy about MLK and attack him too?
