AMC's Rubicon Begins Production March 29th in New York City

Starring James Badge Dale (HBO's The Pacific), Network's Newest Original Series Slated for a Summer 2010 Premiere

NEW YORK, NY, March 16, 2010 - AMC announced today it will begin production on Rubicon, its newest original drama series, on Monday, March 29, in New York City. Rubicon is a conspiracy thriller starring James Badge Dale, currently headlining in HBO's The Pacific, as an analyst at a New York City think-tank who is thrown into a story where nothing is as it appears to be. Henry Bromell (Homicide: Life on the Street, Chicago Hope, Brotherhood) has signed on as showrunner. The one-hour, 13-episode weekly series is produced by Warner Horizon Television and premieres this summer.

"Rubicon is an incredible story about trust and power born out of the desire to find a way to capture the intensity and mystery of the best conspiracy thrillers in a series. It is a show that appeals to everyone who has some skepticism about the relationship between big business and our government, which we think is pretty much everybody," said Joel Stillerman, SVP of original programming, production and digital content for AMC. "Our stellar cast and creative team allow us to continue to present premium television on basic cable."

The series cast includes James Badge Dale (The Pacific, The Departed), Oscar�-nominee Miranda Richardson (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Sleepy Hollow), Dallas Roberts (Walk the Line, Flicka, The L Word), Jessica Collins (The Nine, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), Christopher Evan Welch (Vicky Cristina Barcelona), Lauren Hodges (Law & Order) and Arliss Howard (Full Metal Jacket, Natural Born Killers, The Sandlot).

AMC's Stillerman along with Susie Fitzgerald, senior vice president of scripted development and current programming, Vlad Wolynetz, vice president of production, series and movies, and Jeremy Elice, vice president of original programming, will oversee the development and production of the new drama.

Rubicon's pilot was produced in New York City and was directed by acclaimed film and television helmer Allen Coulter (The Sopranos, Hollywoodland, Damages, Nurse Jackie). Bromell is executive producer, and Kerry Orent (Michael Clayton, Rescue Me) is co-executive producer of the series.

Greenlit to a full series order in June 2009, Rubicon marks AMC's third original series. In summer 2007, AMC debuted its first original drama Mad Men, which went on to receive unprecedented critical acclaim and garner history-making awards recognition, including back-to-back Emmy and the only series to ever win the Golden Globe, three times in a row, for best drama series on television. The series returns for a fourth season this summer. In January 2008, AMC premiered its second original series, Breaking Bad, which landed on countless critics' top ten lists and also won back-to-back Emmy Awards for outstanding lead actor for Bryan Cranston's portrayal of lead character Walter White. The series returns for its third season on March 21st.
