AMC Premieres its Next AMC Storymakers With Tom Cruise, Judd Apatow and Cameron Diaz

Primetime Special Hosted by Industry Veterans Peter Bart & Peter Guber Airs Friday, May 15th at 8PM EST

New York, NY - May 11, 2009 - AMC announced today the line-up for its next primetime special, AMC Storymakers, to feature Tom Cruise, Judd Apatow (writer, producer, director, Funny People), Cameron Diaz (My Sister's Keeper) and Nick Cassavetes (Director, My Sisters Keeper). Hosted by entertainment industry veterans Peter Bart and Peter Guber, topics discussed include the changes in the entertainment industry, the upcoming films, My Sister's Keeper starring Cameron Diaz, and Judd Apatow's next movie, Funny People, starring Adam Sandler. Tom Cruise discusses highlights from his memorable career. AMC Storymakers is produced by Emmy Award-winning @radical.media. The next AMC StorymakersM premieres Friday, May 15th at 10PM EST.

"Whether commemorating favorite films from every genre and decade, or creating insightful non-scripted programming and acclaimed original productions, the AMC experience is an uncompromising celebration of great stories," said Joel Stillerman, SVP of original programming, production and digital content. "With AMC Storymakers the network creates a venue for two of the industry's most influential personalities to talk to the people who are out there making the stories we love. The roundtable format allows us to present something that is much more about honoring the craft of acting and filmmaking in a conversational setting. Peter Guber and Peter Bart can facilitate this kind of a conversation in a way that nobody else can, and I think our audience will really appreciate that. This will not be your typical interview show."

"The format was developed to create a comfortable environment where the talent can engage in a conversation that is candid, casual and spontaneous," said Robert Friedman, President of Media and Entertainment at @radical.media. "This is in line with the expectations created for the audience at AMC. In our version of a talk show, the desk has been replaced with a couch. Anything can happen and does. And so the stories unfold."

In February of 2009, AMC premiered its first AMC Storymakers special leading into the Academy Awards with nominees Penelope Cruz, Amy Adams, Frank Langella, Melissa Leo and Danny Boyle. Each AMC Storymakers features an intimate gathering of A-list actors in a roundtable discussion about current entertainment headlines. Topics range from the Oscars, summer movies and holiday films to the actors' craft, our guests' current projects and the general state of the entertainment industry. Each program is hosted by industry veterans Peter Bart and Peter Guber.

AMC Storymakers is produced by Emmy Award-winning @radical.media, producers of Sundance Channel's Iconoclasts, and History Channel's 10 Days That Unexpectedly Changed America. AMC and @radical.media previously teamed up in producing the pilot for Mad Men, and are collaborating on this special to create a new unique and dynamic entertainment platform to showcase "what's happening" in the entertainment business.
