Magic and diamonds coming to AMC

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 16th 2008 3:21PM

AMC logoAmerican Movie Classics is really getting into original scripted programming, eh?

First the network brought us Mad Men and Breaking Bad, two of the most critically-acclaimed shows from last year, and now it has been announced that AMC has two more dramas in the works. The first one is Carter Beats The Devil, about a mysterious magician in the 1920s, and the other show is Ice, which is about the inside goings-on at a family owned diamond company in New York City.

I have no idea what Ice could be like (though with AMC's track record I'll definitely be watching), but I am familiar with Carter Beats The Devil. The show is based on a really intriguing novel from Glen David Gold, and Gold is going to work on the show as a consultant, so hopefully the series will have the same color and intelligence and mystery that the book had.

Oh MAN. I LOVE the book "Carter Beats the Devil." It's one of my favorites. It's great news that Gold will be an adviser; I'd hate to see them screw it up.

I'll really be keeping my fingers crossed on this one...
