AMC Gets Its Western On With ‘Hell On Wheels’
They'v taken television by storm with their hour-long dramas, and now AMC is preparing to run a train. The network gave a series order to "Hell On Wheels," a drama about the construction of the transcontinental railroad.
It stars Anson Mount as a confederate soldier working on the railroad after the end of the Civil War. And AMC loves them some Westerns and I love me some "Deadwood." Not to mention the good company it will be in with Breaking Bad," Mad Men," and The Walking Dead." So this is going to be great! Or not!! Let the unfair comparisons begin in.... 3.... 2..... and.... GO! (Deadline)
