AMC has decided to pull the plug on a drama project that has been in the works focusing on the situation in Afghanistan.

Writing on Deadline.com, Nellie Andreeva reports exclusively that the cable channel decided to pass on the pilot “White City,” directed and executive produced by Stephen Gaghan.

“Focused on Western diplomats and journalists living in Afghanistan, the show came from co-writers/co-executive producers Nick McDonell, a novelist and journalist who has covered Iraq and Afghanistan for Time, and John Dempsey, former longtime resident of Kabul and senior advisor on Afghanistan to the late US diplomat Richard C. Holbrooke,” Andreeva writes.

USA also recently opted out of “Stanistan,” another drama pilot focused on the Middle East, Andreeva notes.
