AMC is having a moment. The network heads into the Emmys with 34 nominations, the most of any basic cable channel, and AMC's best tally ever. Mad Men is on the cusp of making Emmy history, trying for a fifth consecutive outstanding drama trophy. Breaking Bad ended the first half of its final season with some of its best ratings ever, while AMC's top-rated The Walking Dead returns on Oct. 14. With so much going on, AMC president Charlie Collier talked to TV Guide Magazine about his network's fortunes.
AMC has renewed The Pitch and given the green light to two unscripted shows: Untitled Taxidermy Series and Venice Beach Freakshow, it announced on Thursday.
"Season one of The Pitch captured the intensity of the advertising world and provided the ultimate, behind-the-scenes look at the compelling and dramatic pitch process," AMC executive Joel Stillerman said. "We are so pleased to work again with Studio Lambert on the show's return."
