AMC is also reneweing Comic Book Men, Talking Dead and Freak Show. They’re developing a sci-fi drama called ‘Ballistic City’ described as Blade Runner meets Battlestar Galactica.
It is being developed by Vince Gilligan and ‘Bad’ writer Peter Gould as a comedy in either an hour or half-hour format.

The first is ’Halt & Catch Fire’, which depicts the personal computing boom in the 1980s. But instead of being set in all-too-familiar Silicon Valley, the setting is Texas’ “Silicon Prairie” (which generally refers to tech community in the Dallas and Fort Worth suburbs). Characters will include a fictional visionary, an engineer and a prodigy whose “innovations directly confront the corporate behemoths of the time.” The drama is created by Chris Cantwell and Chris Rodgers, with Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein (Breaking Bad) as executive producers.
The second is a Revolutionary War drama called ’Turn that’s based on the book Washington’s Spies by Alexander Rose. It’s set in the summer of 1778 and tells the story of New York farmer, Abe Woodhull, “who bands together with a group of childhood friends to form The Culper Ring, an unlikely group of spies who turn the tide in America’s fight for independence.” Turn is written by showrunner Craig Silverstein (Nikita) and executive produced by Barry Josephson (Bones).

A good friend of mine appears as Walter White in this video. Give it a vote and think of all the people with Dish that still don’t have AMC.
If I had to bet I’d say season 7 is going to be it for ‘Mad Men’ and soon AMC is going to have to enter their next phase of existence without their two most acclaimed, network-defining shows.
