FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - The highly anticipated fourth and final season of AMC's critically-acclaimed drama series returns with a two-hour premiere on Saturday, August 19th at 9:00pm ET/PT. The series, created by executive producers and co-showrunners Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers, chronicles the tech industry and the birth of the Internet in the 1980s and early 1990s. The final season of the series will see our cast of characters navigating the early days of the Internet as they search for answers, both personally and professionally, while the competitive nature of the tech world continues to grow and affect their relationships.
In the premiere episode, "So It Goes," Gordon enjoys success while Joe works to keep their web project afloat. Cameron extends a business trip. Donna launches a new venture. In the second episode, "Signal to Noise," Joe and Cameron talk on the phone. Donna promotes her assistant. Gordon's business buckles under pressure from a larger competitor.
"Halt and Catch Fire" stars Lee Pace as Joe MacMillan, Mackenzie Davis as Cameron Howe, Scoot McNairy as Gordon Clark, Kerry Bishé as Donna Clark and Toby Huss as John Bosworth. Actress, Anna Chlumsky ("Veep"), will be also appear this season as Dr. Katie Herman, Chief Ontologist--a crucial role in this season's central business ventures.
AMC's "Talking with Chris Hardwick," returns with an all new episode on Sunday, August 20th at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT featuring celebrity astrophysicist, Neil DeGrasse Tyson. The series, produced by Embassy Row, builds on the success of "Talking Dead," the #1 talk show on television and a pioneer of the after show format. Each 60-minute episode features an in-depth conversation between Hardwick and a single guest or cast. While "Talking Dead" focuses exclusively on "The Walking Dead" and "Fear the Walking Dead," episodes of "Talking with Chris Hardwick" feature a wide breadth of guests and highlight Hardwick's singularly irreverent and authentic take on today's pop culture landscape.
Compared with a typical 5 or 10-minute talk show interview, "Talking with Chris Hardwick" leverages the host's gift for deep conversation, on display in his popular podcast. The show's strong social media presence and live audience interactivity gives fans a new destination to celebrate their favorite pop culture icons. In addition to hosting duties, Hardwick serves as executive producer on the series alongside Michael Davies, Brandon Monk, Jen Patton, and Brillstein Entertainment Partners' Alex Murray.
Season two of AMC's critically-acclaimed, supernatural series "Preacher" continues with an all new episode on Monday, August 21st at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the tenth episode, "Dirty Little Secret," Jesse connects with an unlikely source and learns more about God's whereabouts. Tulip can't forgive Jesse when she finds out he's been lying to her.
Based on the popular cult comic book franchise of the same name, Preacher is an absurdly twisted and action packed thrill ride. When Jesse Custer, a small-town preacher with a criminal past, realizes God is absent from Heaven, Jesse sets out to find Him. Along for the ride are Tulip, Jesse's volatile true love, and Cassidy, a 119 year old Irish vampire and Jesse's best mate. The gang ends up in New Orleans, where they must dodge local gangsters, dangerous secret agents in white suits, and the Saint of Killers, an unstoppable killer cowboy from Hell.
"Preacher" season two stars Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Joseph Gilgun, Ian Colletti, Graham McTavish, and new additions Noah Taylor ("Peaky Blinders," "Game of Thrones"), Pip Torrens (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, My Week with Marilyn), Julie Ann Emery ("Better Call Saul," "Fargo"), Malcolm Barrett ("Dear White People"), Justin Prentice ("13 Reasons Why," "Awkward") and Ronald Guttman ("Mozart in the Jungle," "Mad Men").
The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg ("Sausage Party," "Neighbors 2," "Superbad") and showrunner Sam Catlin ("Breaking Bad"). The series is executive produced by Catlin, as well as Rogen, Goldberg and James Weaver for Point Grey Pictures, Neal H. Moritz and Ori Marmur for Original Film and Vivian Cannon, Jason Netter, Ken F. Levin, Michael Slovis and the author of the Preacher graphic novel, Garth Ennis.
AMC's newest original drama series, "Loaded," continues on Monday, August 21st at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the sixth episode, "The Red List," two weeks from Expo and the Gang finally complete the first build of the game. A freak accident brings Leon and Casey to an unusual understanding.
"Loaded" centers around the lives of tech entrepreneurs and friends Josh (Jim Howick), Leon (Samuel Anderson), Watto (Nick Helm) and Ewan (Jonny Sweet), who have just sold their start up videogame company for hundreds of millions of pounds - the culmination of a billion man-hours of blood, sweat, toil, coding, shouting, swearing, fighting, hugging, pitching, grinding, and, occasionally, showering. Overnight, the four 30-something friends are transformed from "people who play games" to "serious players in the game." Amid a raging hurricane of money, excess and "millionaire's guilt", "Loaded" is about friendship, ambition, gluttony, the peculiar distaste for other people's success and how money can put even life-long friendships to the test.
Based on Keshet International's award-winning series Mesudarim created by Muli Segev and
Assaf Harel, "Loaded" is executive produced by Kate Norrish and Polly Leys for Hillbilly Television ("The Level"); Howard Burch, Avi Nir, Segev and Harel for Keshet and Jon Brown ("Fresh Meat," "Veep"); with Charlie Leech ("The Wrong Mans") as producer. The series is co-production between AMC, Channel 4, Hillbilly Television, and Keshet UK.
The series stars Jim Howick ("The Aliens," "Yonderland," "Horrible Histories"), Samuel Anderson (The History Boys, "Doctor Who," "Trollied"), Jonny Sweet ("Babylon," "Together," "Him & Her"), Nick Helm ("Uncle," "Funny Valentines") and Mary McCormack ("The West Wing," "In Plain Sight," "The Newsroom").
