AMC Picks Up Conspiracy Drama Series Rubicon with James Badge Dale, Lili Taylor, Miranda Richardson

AMC Picks Up Series No. 3: Rubicon

Has AMC found its next Mad Men or Breaking Bad? After its first two series racked up tons of acclaim and awards, the cable network is trying to go three-for-three with Rubicon.

Starring Lili Taylor, James Badge Dale, and Miranda Richardson, Rubicon is a thriller that finds an analyst at a New York City think tank discovering a vast global conspiracy. The show will begin to reveal "a secret society that pulls the strings on the world political stage." AMC's ordered 12 episodes of the series so far.

"We thought this was a great story to tell, which is relevant for the time we live in, with unique voice and characters in a very unique world that hadn't been explored," said Joel Stillerman, the network's head of original programming.

No air date has been announced, but I'll be keeping my eye on this one. With AMC's track record, I'll give anything they develop a shot. Does this sound like a series that could continue AMC's winning ways?
