Can Halt and Catch Fire Reboot AMC's Drama Slate?

If you tune in to AMC Sunday night at 10/9c, you'll find a period piece starring a handsome, well-dressed man who, despite having the confidence and silver tongue to sell almost anything, is running from his complicated past. And no, we're not talking about Mad Men or Don Draper.

The show in question is Halt and Catch Fire, a drama set in the "Silicon Prairie" of Dallas, Texas in 1983 that tells the story of the race to build the best personal computer.  And while the surface comparisons to Mad Men may be incidental, it's no surprise that AMC would be looking to recapture some of that show's magic as the network prepares to reboot itself after saying goodbye to its cornerstone property next year.

Where does AMC go from here?

"More than anything, we talk about doing what got us to the dance," AMC president Charlie Collier told back in January while speaking of upcoming projects, including Halt and Catch Fire. Added Executive Vice President of Original Programming Joel Stillerman: "Shows that just a handful of networks in the business would even entertain are much more the bread and butter of what we're doing. The game is to be eclectic by design and look for the great visionaries who we can empower to do their passion projects and big original ideas."
