AMC Searches for Its Next Mad Men

With Mad Men already a critical hit and Breaking Bad getting good buzz, AMC — yeah, the M still stands for movie — is looking for another series hit.

The network announced this week that it has added two dramas to its development roster for next year. Both projects sound intriguing and quirky, a hallmark of the network's forays into TV so far:

  • Ice sounds a little like The Sopranos if Tony Soprano imported diamonds instead of whacking mobsters. The show revolves around a family in New York's diamond district, with "an old-fashioned crime aspect" to it. Vadim Perelman, who directed The Life Before Her Eyes and The House of Sand and Fog, will helm the pilot.
  • Carter Beats the Devil sounds delightfully bizarre. It's based on a novel of the same name about a 1920s magician who apparently had a connection to the death of President Warren G. Harding. It was once slated to be a movie with Tom Cruise but has now found its way to television.

I don't know about you, but I think Carter Beats the Devil will be finding a place on my reading list. AMC has a pretty good track record so far; do these projects intrigue you?

Both of those sound intriguing. I love Breaking Bad and Mad Men, and I have no doubt AMC is going to be the new HBO.

Carter Beats The Devil is a great book, and I will definitely check out this show. As for Ice, I', kind of over the whole "it's just like the Sopranos except..." concept, so unless it gets astoundingly excellent reviews, I probably won't make room for it.
