'Walking Dead' gets new showrunner
AMC broke its silence on the recent major showrunner shakeup that’s impacted its highest-rated series, The Walking Dead. No big revelations, but here’s the statement:
AMC also announced its first digital series, titled The Trivial Pursuits of Arthur Banks. The 40-minute project stars Adam Goldberg and Jeffrey Tambor and will premiere as a co-release on amctv.com and Hulu.com on Aug. 22. The series is part of a new project by the network, AMC Digital Studios, which aims to create original content for the Web.
The Trivial Pursuits of Arthur Banks is about a theater director (Goldberg) who stages an elaborate play that mirrors his dysfunctional love life. Aided by his therapist (Tambor) and the actors within his meta-life, Arthur attempts to unsort the complex issues that occur each time he falls in love.
