    Actually thats a fair point. Sutter may have some inside knowledge too because he was a big part of the Shield and that's where Mazzara(new WD showrunner) hails from. As far as Breaking Bad I have to imagine AMC is probably pissy because Gilligan wants to end the show either next season or maybe the one after. So AMC may figure they don't have much to lose there.. I like Sutter and his honesty...that's another feather in Fx's cap, they have never been on the wrong side(to my knowledge) of one of his rants.

    Sort of a drag after the news earlier this week. Weird that someone pasted Fx all over the damned thing...wishful thinking.

    This Should Happen: AMC is in serious need of a regime change
    Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.
    'Awesome editorial bordering on 'well DUH!!!!'

    The network takes risks, but doesnít seem to understand how to keep pace with their successes. If it was just one disagreement, I could explain away the brass just not getting along with Darabont, who notoriously sticks to his guns and isnít afraid at pissing people off to protect his storytelling. But considering AMC has three mammoth shows and thereís creative unrest between all three showrunners and the execs itís pretty clear thereís a problem with the management.

    You guys understand why this is bad news for us, the fans. You donít need me to draw it outÖ suits interfering with the creative process isnít a new thing in Hollywood. What AMCís board and advertisers should be made aware of is how these actions negatively impact them directly. Fans want quality storytelling, risky storytellingÖ board members, shareholders and advertisers just want to look at the bottom line, see profits.

    For them, I have this to say: Mad Men, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead werenít successes because of Stillman and his group, they were successes despite them. Do you really think the next Vince Gilligan or Frank Darabont or Matthew Weiner will be attracted to AMC knowing how they treat their talent? Do you think the next brilliant showrunner will choose AMC over, say, HBO with the next great, profitable series knowing that even if they bring in the best ratings in the networkís history their budgets will be slashed in their next season and they could be booted off the series they developed for years?

    Guys, itís not that hard to figure out. If you donít invest in the future of your network youíre not going to have one. You need to make AMC the home of cutting edge TV, a haven for the men and women who really do the work, tell the stories audiences want to tune in to every week. If you donít, then youíre going to lose the next wave of brilliant showrunners.

    BD Horror News - AMC In More Hot Water Regarding 'Walking Dead' Firing; Anthrax's Scott Ian a Zombie?!

    Not only has Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian put on display an image of him as a zombie (pictured inside) from the set of AMC's now filming second season of "The Walking Dead," more juicy madness is pouring salt on the wounds that has now become a public fist fight.

    BREAKING BAD Renewed for a 16-Episode Final Season

    not all good news though

    AMC may have some of the best dramatic series on TV right now, but they’ve had a hell of a time working out the details. There was the negotiations drama with Mad Men, the behind-the-scenes creative shuffling on The Walking Dead, and recently trying to get more Breaking Bad to stay on AMC while controlling costs. Deadline reports that Sony (the company behind the show) and AMC have come to an agreement over the $3 million price tag for the series’ budget. The new agreement will bring a 16-episode final season to the series, although the final season may be split into two halves. While AMC is a cable network and doesn’t have the cash of network TV or the premium channels, I think this is money well spent. I’m slightly biased because I think Breaking Bad is the best show on TV right now.

    But the drama isn’t over yet. Vince Gilligan doesn’t have a contract beyond this season so he’ll be renegotiating his contract with Sony. The cast can renegotiate their contracts as well.
    Man, tonights episode was brilliant!!!!!

    Kurt Sutter quits Twitter | Inside TV | EW.com

    Posted here instead of on the SOA/Fx threads due simply to the fact that this is fallout from his post RE:Mad Men and AMC's subsequent bad moves.

    it was! good to hear there's going to be a bunch of shows before the end. i'm hoping contract negotiations for gilligan and the cast don't (negatively) affect what'll be left.

    AMC Exec's Fake Twitter Account: 'We've Slashed The Killing's Chewing-Gum Budget' | TheWrap TV

    "It's not my fault that Darabont didn't want to incorporate already-shot-footage from The Mist into The Walking Dead," @joelstillerman tweeted Sunday.

    Earlier, he added, "Hey guys! Wondering if anyone knows of surplus stores in the CA area where I could get a meth lab props for under $400. #Thanks #HitMeBack."

    >> Big Announcement! There will be a 2nd season of Rubicon! Just kidding. Do you know how much that ****ing train scene cost to shoot? #2much

    >> I know this Bryan Cranston guy is good...but is he $200,000-I-Could-Save-By-Recasting-Walter-White-With-Jim-Norton good? Hm...time will tell

    Heh!

    What?? Is AMC Creating A WALKING DEAD Talk Show??
    Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

    AMC has shot a talk-show pilot designed to do for AMC scripted programming what Bravo’s “Watch What Happens: Live” does for Bravo's reality programming.

    The idea, I gather, is to have the “Walking Dead”-centric chatfest air after each new episode of “Walking Dead” this fall. If it works for “Dead,” AMC could start doing similar weekly aftershows for “Mad Men,” “Breaking Bad,” “The Killing” and so on.

    Bravo programming exec Andy Cohen hosts “WWH” -- so will the guy who just fired Frank Darabont host the AMC version?

    Probably not. Former “Singled Out” host and current “Nerdist” blogger Chris Hardwick, who also hosts G4’s “Web Soup,” was tapped to host the AMC talk pilot.

    Will the stars and writers of “Walking Dead” finally be allowed to explain why Glen Mazzara (creator and original showrunner of Starz’ widely and deservedly reviled TV version of “Crash”) is now “Walking Dead” showrunner instead of “Shawshank Redmption” writer-director Darabont?
