AMC will air an all new episode of "The Making of The Mob: Chicago" on Monday, August 22nd at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. Produced by the Emmy(R) Award-winning, Stephen David Entertainment ("The World Wars," "The Men Who Built America."), the eight-episode docu-drama chronicles the rise and fall of iconic gangster Al Capone, as well as the story of his successors, collectively known as The Chicago Outfit.
On the seventh episode, "Sin City," Joe Accardo sets his sights on Las Vegas, but when Sam Giancana incurs the wrath of young attorney Robert F. Kennedy, The Outfit is threatened.
Season three of the critically acclaimed drama, "Halt and Catch Fire" debuts Tuesday, August 23 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT with two back-to-back episodes. In the season three premiere, "Valley of the Heart's Delight," written by Chris Cantwell and Chris Rogers and directed by Daisy Mayer, Donna and Cameron explore their options to expand beyond chat. Gordon settles in at Mutiny. Joe launches his latest product. In the second episode, "One Way or Another," written by Michael Saltzman and directed by Kimberly Pierce, while Cameron and Donna struggle to find venture capital, Joe hires a key coder, leaving the rest of the team at a loss.
In the third season, which picks up in March 1986, Mutiny leaves Texas for the big leagues of Silicon Valley. Founders Cameron Howe (Mackenzie Davis) and Donna Clark (Kerry Bishé) search for the idea that will launch Mutiny as a player, but new collaborators test their partnership. Gordon (Scoot McNairy) struggles to find a place within his wife's company as Joe McMillan (Lee Pace) builds upon his empire, reinventing himself with a bold play that shocks the Valley and sends him back into the lives of his old partners. In addition to Pace, McNairy, Bishé, Davis and Toby Huss as John Bosworth, the third season features Annabeth Gish as Diane Gould, a seasoned Silicon Valley venture capitalist, and Manish Dayal as Ryan Ray, a talented and ambitious programmer, in recurring roles.
From AMC Studios, "Halt and Catch Fire" captures the rise of the PC era in the 1980s, focused on four main characters attempting to innovate against the changing backdrop of technology. The series was created by showrunners Cantwell and Rogers and is executive produced by Cantwell, Rogers and Gran Via Productions' Mark Johnson ("Breaking Bad," "Rectify," Diner, Rain Man) and Melissa Bernstein ("Breaking Bad," "Rectify").
