Western Epic The Son Being Adapted As Series At AMC - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy, who developed Netflix’s Hemlock Grove, is working on The Son. There’s certainly enough material to mount a rather long-running series (thought as a self contained mini, it could probably be pretty epic as well). The story spans generations and follows three time periods in the McCullough family.
The first, Eli, is kidnapped by Indians in the mid 19th Century and grows up under the tutelage of the Comanche tribe. His son, Peter, is sensitive and has an adverse reaction to ambition and bloodshed, much to his family’s chagrin. And in present day, Jeannie strives to hold her own in a still male-dominated oil and cattle industries.
TURN Renewed for Season 2 by AMC
I'm happy with that. Slow starting, but likeable enough, and it picked up nicely towards the end.
The ratings for Turn haven’t been through the roof, but they’ve been solid enough. On the other hand, AMC’s other new drama, Halt and Catch Fire, has not been faring as well. The show had promise with its intriguing premise and talented cast, but it’s thus far failed to really take off (its Mad Men/Breaking Bad ripoff vibe is certainly off-putting).
Halt and Catch Fire is just awesome. That is all.
Sweeps were over in May so isn't HACF already in ratings trouble due to airing in June?

“There’s a lot going on with Terminus,” Kirkman said while promoting his new comic Outcast on Entertainment Weekly radio this week. “In our premiere episode of season 5 we’re going to give a ton of answers of who the people of Terminus are, what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, what’s going on with them. And by the end of that episode you’re going to have a much better understanding of what’s going on with them and why they’re so important to the show. Oh, and Daryl dies.”
