AMC is moving forward with three new drama projects on the cable net’s straight-to-series track, a model that has increasingly come into favor at AMC in recent years.
“The cabler has opened writers rooms for ‘NOS4A2,’ ‘Pandora’ and ‘Silent History’ in a bid to generate enough scripts to evaluate whether the projects are worthy of going straight into episodic production,” Variety reports. “The process involves a handful of writers working with showrunners for a set period to hammer out the vision for a prospective series.”
The report notes that the team on “NOS4A2” is led by Jami O’Brien, an alum of AMC’s “Hell on Wheels” and “Fear the Walking Dead.” “The series revolves around a woman with a gift for finding things who finds herself battling a man who lures children to a terrifying world dubbed ‘Christmasland,'” Variety notes.
The global mystery-thriller “Pandora” comes from Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley, while “Silent History,” about a generation that cannot understand language, is being shepherded by Claire Carré and Charles Spano, Variety adds.
