    Here’s hoping Rick Grimes has a good retirement plan. During a conference call with Wall Street analysts on Thursday, AMC CEO Josh Sapan hinted that the The Walking Dead could stay on the air for years — if not decades. “The use of the word ‘franchise,’ we don’t take lightly,” the exec said, per our sister site Deadline. “It’s not a sloppy or casual word. We’ve studied the best. Some have been around 30, 40, 50 years. We have a chance for a lot of life in the franchise.” (UPDATE: An AMC insider stresses that Sapan was referring to the...

    AMC has put in development a drama based on Wesley Lowery’s bestselling nonfiction book They Can’t Kill Us All: Ferguson, Baltimore, and a New Era in America’s Racial Justice. It comes from Brad Weston’s Makeready and writer LaToya Morgan (Into the Badlands, Turn: Washington’s Spies). Published in 2016 by Little, Brown & Company, the book was acquired by Makeready last fall. It examines how decades of racially biased policing in segregated neighborhoods with failing schools, crumbling infrastructure and too few jobs has led to the high-profile cases of police brutality in Ferguson, Cleveland, Baltimore and elsewhere and the birth of...

  • The Clintons, Abdurahman Alamoudi, and the Myth of "Moderate" Islam (READ THIS!!!!)

    When Abdurahman Alamoudi, friend and sometime adviser on Islamic affairs to Hillary Rodham Clinton, stood before a Muslim crowd in Lafayette Park across from the White House this week and passionately declared his support for the terrorist organizations Hamas and Hezbollah, he was revealing the true face of "moderate" Islam. He was also revealing the blindness, or rather the willful complicity, of America's political elites, particularly the Clintons, who have welcomed these Islamic "moderates" into our midst and helped raise them to important positions of influence in American life. As revealed in last Friday's New York Daily News, Alamoudi, shortly ...

    A terrorist sympathizer whose organization donated $50,000 to Hillary Clinton's Senate campaign three years ago and who openly defended Hamas during an earlier visit to the Clinton White House has been arrested. U.S. officials confirmed Monday morning the arrest of Abdurahman Alamoudi, a prominent member of the American Muslim Council, which presented a $50,000 check to Mrs. Clinton at a June 2000 fundraiser in Boston. Alamoudi also personally donated $1,000 to Mrs. Clinton. Her campaign camouflaged the donations in Federal Election Commission filings as coming from "the American Museum Council," but later said the mistake was a typo. According to...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 6/1/15 | Erich Schwartzel
    Regal Entertainment Group and AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc., the nation’s two largest movie theater chains, have received formal inquiries from the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division, signaling growing government scrutiny of a tactic large theater operators commonly use to keep movies out of competing locations. AMC, which has faced the most backlash in the exhibition industry over the practices, told investors the Justice Department wants information “in connection with an investigation,” according to an AMC notice filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday, into “potentially anticompetitive conduct” at the company. Regal made a similar disclosure on Monday. That conduct...
  • AMC’s “Turn”: The Best Television Show You’re Not Watching

    As a huge television buff, I'm uniquely qualified to render this opinion: "Turn" is the best show currently playing on any network.It's the story of young father caught up in the American Revolution, who, trying to keep his head down and nose clean, ultimately decides to become a spy for the Continental Army. Based upon a book I'd neither read nor even heard of, Alexander Rose’s "Washington's Spies: The Story of America's First Spy Ring,” it adroitly weaves in the exploits of Abraham Woodhull with the better-known stories and events of the war.I was first drawn to it due its...

    Charting Course ^ | 8/26/14 | Steve Berman
    The only thing separating a studio audience from a couple having sex on stage is a “soundproof box”.  Then the couple emerges from their connubial enclave to sit on couches and talk about the experience—and their relationship—with a panel of “experts”.  AMC, purveyor of classic movies, picked up the show “Sex Box” from the UK for its We tv unit. There’s nothing classic, or classy, about Sex Box.  It’s crass, craven, and frankly, disgusting.  What kind of person would sit in that studio audience?  How does the cast “warm up” the audience when they are sitting there vicariously focused on a couple...

    AMC's latest drama tries to set up a grand story of America's first spy ring but forgets to be exciting in the process. Having series so great or so popular that nobody seems to notice how much you flounder when they're not on is a luxury (or is it a mystery?) that AMC must be praying doesn’t go away anytime soon. Its latest series, the Revolutionary War spy drama Turn, may eventually turn into something worth talking about, but the 90-minute premiere seems so intent on setting up Something Really Big For Later that it forgets to be compelling in...

  • ‘Turn,’ AMC’s New Series About America’s First Spy Ring, Is A Visually Arresting Historical Epic

    The new AMC series Turn, which premieres April 6, is bewildering at first. We’re dropped smack in the middle of British-occupied New York. The year is 1776, and Abraham Woodhull (Jamie Bell) is scraping by as a cabbage farmer and sometime innkeeper in Setauket, Long Island. He’s husband to Mary (Meegan Warner), and father to a young child. His father, Richard (Kevin McNally), is a local magistrate loyal to George III. Then the scene shifts. We’re now in New Jersey. A stunning overhead shot reveals a sprawling field of bluecoat rebel bodies lying next to a pool dyed red with...

    The Saul Goodman comedy hour is a go. AMC greenlit the “Breaking Bad” spinoff, “Better Call Saul,” on Wednesday after months of discussions between the network and creator Vince Gilligan. The series will focus on sleazy lawyer and fan favorite Saul Goodman, played by comedian Bob Odenkirk. If you think Gilligan slipped up by announcing the spinoff before “Breaking Bad” ends in three weeks and somehow gave away part of how the series ends, don’t worry. Even if Saul Goodman perishes in the season finale in a blaze of gunfire (like what is probably going to happen with Hank and...

    On Easter Sunday evening, a TV show about good and evil aired on the History Channel -- the final installment of "The Bible" miniseries in which Jesus is executed. AMC ran the season-ending episode of "The Walking Dead" -- the series where zombies try to eat the brains of human beings. One footnote: The world might have been a better place had the zombies preemptively gotten to the guy who thought up this series in the first place. Anyway, the zombies won. They beat Jesus in the ratings, especially among viewers ages 18 to 49. What lesson can be...
