Some of the Shows now playing on AMC: A very big international appeal exists for some of those shows. If you have watched AMC then you have almost certainly seen at least one of these shows.
Hell on Wheels
The Walking Dead
The Trivial Pursuits of Arthur Banks
On March 31, 2013, during the third season finale of The Walking Dead, AMC unveiled a rebranding campaign with the new tagline "Something More" and inverted the logo from a rectangular outlined box to a solid gold block with the network's acronymic name retained in the center. 2013 saw the channel's unscripted slate doubled with the additions of Freakshow, Immortalized, Owner's Manual, Showville, and Talking Bad.
Also in April, Rectify, which was originally developed for AMC, premiered on AMC's sister channel Sundance Channel to jump start that network's emerging slate of original scripted programming. It was then followed by the July announcement that fellow sister channel WE tv had picked up another series originally developed for AMC for the 2012-2013 development slate, The Divide, to series. During this timeframe, AMC had started to run marathons of certain shows and run commercials from its co-owned sister channels.
In July 2013, it was announced that the network had picked up two drama series: Halt & Catch Fire and Turn, which are set to premiere in 2014. This was the first time that AMC had four pilot orders picked up to series in the same cycle, the other two being The Divide and Low Winter Sun. The latter premiered on August 11, 2013 after the season premiere of the final season of Breaking Bad.
WALKING DEAD COMIC BOOK STORY WHICH GIVES A PLOT TO THE SHOW ON AMC:
Shot in the line of duty, Cynthiana, Kentucky police officer Rick Grimes wakes from a coma in the hospital to find his town overrun with walking corpses. Rick learns from fellow survivors Morgan Jones and his son Duane that the government told people to find safety in Atlanta, Georgia. Rick travels to Atlanta in search of his wife Lori and son Carl. He meets a scavenger named Glenn, who takes him to a small survivor camp outside the ruined city, where Rick reunites with his family.
After a fatal zombie attack on the camp, Rick criticizes its leader, his former police partner Shane Walsh, who also had an affair with Lori before Rick came. Shane pulls a gun on Rick, but is shot dead by Carl. Now de facto leader, Rick decides the survivors need to find a safer home. Upon meeting Tyreese, his daughter Julie, and Julie's boyfriend Chris, Lori reveals she's pregnant, but doesn't know if the father is Rick or Shane.
Rick’s early settlement attempts are disastrous. Donna, mother of twins Ben and Billy, is killed after the survivors move into a gated neighborhood infested with zombies. A farmer, Hershel Greene, invites the group to stay on his land, where Glenn strikes a relationship with Hershel's middle daughter Maggie, - until zombies kept in the barn break free and kill two of Hershel's children. The group's fortunes improve when they discover an abandoned prison with a zombie-proof fence.
Joined by four surviving inmates, Hershel, his remaining family, and a few friends meet along the road, Rick’s group fortifies the prison against zombies. In a suicide pact gone wrong, Julie gets shot by Chris, but then reanimates as a zombie and gets shot again by Chris. After a vengeful Tyreese kills Chris, the group learns that you don't have to be bitten or scratched to become a zombie, but can reanimate when you die without head trauma. After Rick goes to Shane's resting place to kill his reanimated body, danger comes from within: a psychotic inmate murders Hershel’s two youngest daughterswho soon gets killed by a vengeful Maggie, Rick kills another inmate during an attempted coup against his group, and one inmate decides to leave his fate to the zombies. As the last surviving inmate Axel and katana wielding suvivor Michonne are welcomed by the group, Allen, the twins' father gets bitten and dies from a long battle against blood loss from having his infected limb amputated. Increasingly erratic and brutal as he struggles to keep order, Rick steps down as the group’s leader, replaced by a committee run by him, Hershel, Tyreese, and the group's oldest and wisest member Dale.
Rick, Glenn, and Michonne, leave the prison to investigate a nearby helicopter crash and stumble upon Woodbury: a survivor town ruled by an insane tyrant called The Governor, who kills other groups of survivors to take their supplies and keep their severed heads as trophies. When his visitors won’t tell him where they came from, he imprisons them, cutting off Rick's right hand and forcing Glenn to listen to him sadistically raping Michonne. The Governor eventually allows the three to escape, hoping to tail them back home. But on her way out of town, Michonne captures, tortures and mutilates the Governor.
The prison dwellers prepare for a reprisal attack, but slip into complacency and distraction after weeks with no sign of Woodbury forces. Lori gives birth to a girl and is named Judith. Dale gets bitten on the leg but lives through having it amputated and gets a wooden peg to replace his leg. Glenn marries Maggie and “adopts” Carl's girlfriend Sophia after her mother Carol commits suicide. Dale and his 40-year younger girlfriend Andrea adopt the twins. Rick and Hershel are admiring the courtyard vegetable garden when the Governor (having been revived former Army medic Bob Stookey) and a small army rolls up to the prison fence.
Despite their better weapons and larger numbers, the Woodbury forces take heavy casualties and retreat. Convinced they will return, Glenn, Maggie, Sophia, Dale, Andrea, and the twins flee in Dale's RV. Michonne and her lover Tyreese are captured while attempting a preemptive commando strike on Woodbury. Michonne escapes into the wasteland but the Governor executes Tyreese outside the prison gate before launching his second assault.
The Governor’s forces use a tank to break down the fence and massacre the prison dwellers, killing Hershel, Axel, Lori, Judith, and many others. Rick and Carl flee to a nearby town. Zombies pour in through the broken fence and surround the Woodbury forces. One of the Governor’s soldiers Lilly Caul, shoots him in the head for making her kill Judith, before his army runs out of ammo and presumably perishes.
Rick and Carl reunite with Michonne and those who fled in the RV. These few survivors of the prison massacre wander until they join up with a trio headed to Washington, D.C. One of them, Eugene, claims to be a government scientist in radio contact with survivors in the capital.
