LOS ANGELES, CA JULY 15, 2007 - AMC is underway with an aggressive slate of new series in development for the network. The projects bring television heavy weights such as Tom Fontana (OZ); Freddy DeMann (The Life and Death of Peter Sellers) and William Finkelstein (Law & Order); Kip Koenig (Grey's Anatomy) and David Semel (Heroes, House); Karen Hall (E-Ring, Judging Amy); Michael Oates Palmer (Shark, West Wing); Jason Rothenberg (Girlfight) and Scott Villa (The Simple Life, Medical Investigation); Adam Glass (All About the Andersons); Bob Cooper and Orin Woinsky of Landscape Entertainment; and writer, Stacy Title and producer, Jonathan Penner (The Lone Ranger, 2003) to the network, further expanding and solidifying AMC's original programming strategy.

"AMC is committed to creating an environment of cinematic quality, and it is gratifying to see that our vision is resonating with such high profile talent," stated AMC's Executive Vice President of Programming and Production, Rob Sorcher. "As we continue our investment in original programming, it's exciting to team up with such an amazing collection of talented individuals and we are confident that this new slate will yield compelling, high quality content for the network."

Today's announcement comes on the heels of significant original programming activity from AMC over the past year, including the network's first original drama series, Mad Men, from writer/producer Matthew Weiner (The Sopranos) which premieres July 19 at 10PM/9C and the recently greenlit series Breaking Bad, from writer/producer Vince Gilligan (The X-Files) that follows the story of a desperate man with nothing to lose - and what he is willing to do for his family's survival.

Additionally in 2006, AMC signed a co-production deal with BBC for the critically acclaimed drama Hustle, which premiered its fourth season on the network in April 2007.
