As part of its ongoing commitment to providing a place for original stories and characters that defy expectations, AMC made a number of announcements on the day of its Upfront. The network that currently boasts the most-watched drama series in basic cable history with The Walking Dead as well as one of television's most award-winning series with Mad Men, unveiled its second live after show, Talking Bad, numerous new projects in development, a first-look pact with Scott Free Productions as well as an overall deal with writer Rolin Jones, Spring and Summer programming premiere dates and several series renewals.
"Six years ago at AMC, we set a goal to create premium television on basic cable and we began to develop and nurture shows that would set us apart," said Charlie Collier, President and General Manager, AMC. "As we lay out the year ahead for advertisers at our 2013 Upfront, it is an honor to have such a breadth of development and programming to share and to be in business with such a high caliber of talent in front of and behind the camera."
