FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - An all-new episode of AMC's original scripted drama series "The Son" airs Saturday, April 29th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on both AMC and SundanceTV. The series is based on Philipp Meyer's New York Times best-selling and Pulitzer Prize-nominated novel of the same name, and stars Pierce Brosnan. Consisting of ten one-hour episodes, "The Son" traces the transformation of Eli McCullough (Brosnan) from good-natured innocent to calculating killer. He loses everything on the wild frontier, setting him on the path to building a ranching-and-oil dynasty of unsurpassed wealth and privilege. The series deftly explores how Eli's ruthlessness and quest for power triggers consequences that span generations, as the McCullough's rise to become one the most powerful family dynasties in Texas.
In the fifth episode, "No Prisoners," an enemy forces Young Eli to question his loyalties in 1849. In 1915, the McCulloughs' past comes back to haunt them with deadly results.
"The Son" is executive produced by showrunner Kevin Murphy ("Defiance"), co-creators Philipp Meyer, Brian McGreevy ("Hemlock Grove") and Lee Shipman ("Hemlock Grove"), director Tom Harper ("War & Peace," "Peaky Blinders") and Sonar Entertainment's Jenna Santoianni and Tom Lesinski. In addition to Brosnan, cast members include Jacob Lofland ("Justified," "Texas Rising," Maze Runner), Henry Garrett (Beauty and the Beast, "Poldark"), Paola Nunez ("Amor en Custodia"), Carlos Bardem (Assassin's Creed), Zahn McClarnon ("Fargo"), Jess Weixler ("The Good Wife"), David Wilson Barnes (Capote, The Bourne Legacy), Sydney Lucas (Fun Home), James Parks (The Hateful Eight, "Deadwood") and Elizabeth Frances ("Love").
Season two of AMC's martial arts drama, "Into the Badlands," continues with an all-new episode on Sunday, April 30th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the new episode, "Black Heart, White Mountain," Sunny confronts his inner demons while his friends struggle to help him. The Widow exacts revenge on her enemies with help from a new, deadly partner.
Season two of the martial arts drama finds Sunny (Daniel Wu) and M.K. (Aramis Knight) separated and scattered to the wind, each imprisoned in unlikely places. While M.K. struggles to control his powers, Sunny is determined to fight his way back into the Badlands to find his family or die trying. On their journey, Clipper and Colt are assisted by new allies whose motivations may be anything but pure. Meanwhile, The Widow (Emily Beecham) continues to consolidate power against the other Barons, while a dark and mysterious threat prepares to exact revenge on them all. Alliances are struck, friendships betrayed, and by season's end, Sunny and M.K.'s lives will be forever altered.
"Into the Badlands" was created by showrunners/executive producers/writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar and executive produced by Oscar(R)-nominated producers Stacey Sher and Michael Shamberg, director David Dobkin, fight director Stephen Fung and Daniel Wu. The series stars Wu (Tai Chi Zero) as Sunny; Marton Csokas (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King) as Quinn; Aramis Knight (The Dark Knight Rises) as M.K.; Oliver Stark ("Luther") as Ryder; Emily Beecham (28 Weeks Later) as The Widow; Orla Brady ("Dr. Who," "Fringe") as Lydia; Sarah Bolger ("Once Upon a Time," "The Tudors") as Jade; Ally Ioannides ("Parenthood") as Tilda; Madeleine Mantock (Edge of Tomorrow) as Veil; Stephen Lang (Avatar, Don't Breathe) as Waldo and Nick Frost as Bajie (Shaun of the Dead).
An all-new episode of AMC's newest series, "Talking with Chris Hardwick," airs on Sunday, April 30th at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT featuring fellow talk show host, James Corden. The series, produced by Embassy Row, builds on the success of "Talking Dead," the #1 talk show on television and a pioneer of the after show format. Each 60-minute episode features an in-depth conversation between Hardwick and a single guest or cast. While "Talking Dead" focuses exclusively on "The Walking Dead" and "Fear the Walking Dead," episodes of "Talking with Chris Hardwick" feature a wide breadth of guests and highlight Hardwick's singularly irreverent and authentic take on today's pop culture landscape.
Compared with a typical 5 or 10-minute talk show interview, "Talking with Chris Hardwick" leverages the host's gift for deep conversation, on display in his popular podcast. The show's strong social media presence and live audience interactivity gives fans a new destination to celebrate their favorite pop culture icons. Additional guests this season include: Charlie Hunnam, Connie Britton, Justin Theroux, Bryan Cranston, Jane Lynch, Damon Lindelof, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Jordan Peele and the cast of "Orange Is the New Black." In addition to hosting duties, Hardwick serves as executive producer on the series alongside Michael Davies, Brandon Monk, Jen Patton, and Brillstein Entertainment Partners' Alex Murray.
"Better Call Saul" season three continues with an all-new episode on Monday, May 1st at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the new episode, "Sabrosito," Jimmy calls in a favor from Mike. New complications disrupt the Salamancas' business. Chuck and Jimmy struggle to compromise.
A prequel to the award-winning series "Breaking Bad," the series follows down-on-his-luck Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) as he navigates the moral dilemmas of the legal world while trying to step out of his older brother's shadow and make a name for himself. Saul's acclaimed second season ended with a pair of cliffhangers: Determined to prevent his brother from practicing law, Chuck (Michael McKean) staged an elaborate con, secretly recording Jimmy's confession to a felony. When Mike (Jonathan Banks) set his sights on sociopathic cartel boss Hector Salamanca (Mark Margolis), an ominous intervention stopped him from pulling the trigger, raising questions as to what other dangerous players may be in the game.
As the new season begins, the repercussions of Chuck's scheme test Jimmy and Kim's (Rhea Seehorn) fledgling law practices - and their romance - as never before. This imminent existential threat presses Jimmy's faltering moral compass to the limit. Meanwhile, Mike searches for a mysterious adversary who seems to know almost everything about his business. As the season progresses, new characters are introduced and backstories are further illuminated with meaningful nods to the Breaking Bad universe.
