AMC is easily one of the leaders in premium television and it’s because they focus on content and quality and not just getting the highest numbers. The Walking Dead, Mad Men and Breaking Bad are some of the best shows in circulation right now and all of them can be found on AMC.
Recently, they announced the cancellation of The Killing, only after two seasons, due to poor ratings and a general negative response from both audiences and critics. This has lead to the announcement of an Area 51 based show, which would follow the book written by Annie Jacobsen and produced by Gale Ann Hurd.
Collider reports that the show will take place during the 1950s and 60s and it will include interviews from people claiming to have worked at the top-secret military base.
I’ve always been fascinated with Area 51 and the announcement of a show has made my day. I would have rather preferred a full-length movie, but knowing that AMC is in charge means we’re at least going to get something of high quality.
I can’t wait to see what they come up with. What about you?
