AMC ANNOUNCES PRODUCTION ON NEW ORIGINAL SERIES "HELL ON WHEELS"

Entertainment One Serves as the Studio Producing the Drama Series
Entertainment One and Endemol USA to Co-Distribute Series Internationally
Series Slated to Premiere in Fourth Quarter 2011

NEW YORK - May 3, 2011 - AMC announced today that their newest original series, "Hell on Wheels" begins production on Monday, May 16 in Calgary. "Hell on Wheels" is a contemporary western that centers on former confederate soldier Cullen Bohannon, portrayed by Anson Mount, whose quest for vengeance has led him to the Union Pacific Railroads westward construction of the first Transcontinental Railroad. Developed by Endemol USA and produced by Entertainment One (eOne) and Nomadic Pictures, Hell on Wheels is created, written and executive produced by Joe and Tony Gayton (Faster, Uncommon Valor, Salton Sea, Bulletproof). The series is slated to premiere in fourth quarter of 2011.

Todays announcement also reveals a first-look video of Hell on Wheels:

Hell on Wheels Trailer

"Hell on Wheels" underscores the networks commitment to the western following its first original mini-series movie event, "Broken Trail." The mini-series premiere, in June 2006, was the second most watched cable movie since 1995 and delivered the network all-time record ratings, including an average 7.7 HH rating and nearly 10 million total viewers over its two-night airing.*

AMC's commitment to the western is long-standing, and the genre is an important part of our brand and history as a channel, said Charlie Collier, president of AMC. In "Hell on Wheels," AMC is creating another epic and enduring American story.

In addition to Mount (City by the Sea, Cook County, ABCs Line of Fire,) "Hell on Wheels" stars musician/actor Common (Just Wright, Date Night) as Elam, Dominique McElligott (Moon, The Philanthropist) as Lily Bell, Colm Meaney (The Conspirator, Get Him to the Greek) as Durant, Ben Esler (The Pacific) as Sean McGinnes, Philip Burke (Mercy) as Mickey McGinnes and Eddie Spears (Into the West) as Brother Joseph.

"Hell on Wheels" tells the epic story of post-Civil War America, focusing on a Confederate soldier (Mount) who sets out to exact revenge on the Union soldiers who have killed his wife. His journey takes him west to Hell on Wheels, a dangerous, raucous, lawless melting pot of a town that travels with and services the construction of the first transcontinental railroad, an engineering feat unprecedented for its time. The series documents the railroad's incredible feat of engineering and construction as well as the institutionalized greed and corruption, the immigrant experience, and the plight of the newly emancipated African-Americans during reconstruction. Over time, "Hell on Wheels" chronicles this potent turning point in our nation's history, and how uncivilized the business of civilization can be.

Joining the Gaytons as executive producer is Jeremy Gold, Endemols SVP of scripted programming, John Shiban and David Von Ancken, who directed the series pilot. eOne Televisions CEO John Morayniss and SVP creative affairs Michael Rosenberg oversee production in partnership with producers Mike Frislev and Chad Oakes at Nomadic Pictures.

Shot on location in Alberta, Canada, the series is produced with assistance of the Government of Alberta, Alberta Film Development Program.

Looks incredible.

Now this is what I expect from AMC. The Killing is okay but isnt that special to me. But this...this looks like it can be up there with Mad Men, Breaking Bad, and The Walking Dead.

NBC has a similar show, Reconstruction, in development but it is unlikely to get picked up. They do have Playboy (Mad Men) which will likely be on the air this fall, The CW has Awakenings (The Walking Dead) and ABC has Pan-Am (Mad Men).

This looks good. I will be checking this out for sure. I'm not sure about Common though. It took me out of the trailer a bit.

'Hell on Wheels' rolls onto AMC in November
New post-Civil War drama features Anson Mount, Common and more

AMC has set a November premiere date for its new original drama "Hell on Wheels."

The cable network announced on Thursday (July 28) that the 10-episode run of "Hell on Wheels" will roll out starting on on Sunday, November 6 at 10 p.m.

"Hell on Wheels" stars Anson Mount as a Confederate soldier who joins the construction crew on the Union Pacific Railroad at the end of the Civil War. But he has more than just Manifest Destiny on his mind, seeking revenge for wartime misdeeds.

In a statement, AMC SVP Joel Stillerman says, "Since 'Broken Trail,' AMC has looked for the next expression of an original Western series. 'Hell on Wheels' is an incredibly powerful story that captures the intensity and inspiration of the American West at a time when nothing less than the future of the nation was at stake. The characters and the story that Joe and Tony Gayton, Jeremy Gold, and John Shiban have created; and that our terrific cast and crew have realized is compelling, epic, and a truly original take on a classic American genre of storytelling."

***holes need to earn my undying affection. We're only 20 minutes in. I'm sure we'll get there eventually.
