AMC has passed on that cool-sounding Revolutionary War spy drama, ordering pilots for a cop show and a lawyer show instead.
Among the projects on AMC's recent development slate that did not get picked up in this round were “Sacred Games,” a period Indian crime drama based on an epic novel, and “Turn,” a story of spies during the Revolutionary War.
AMC needs to find something compatible with The Walking Dead
so they can capitalize on that audience. Business-as-usual type shows aren't going to hack it. They need to stretch.
