Emmy Award winner Will Bridges (co-writer of the episode “USS Callister” of Black Mirror) and Brett Goldstein (Superbob, Adult Like Skills) are working with AMC on an as yet untitled original episodic anthology series. The untitled show is based on the short film “For Life” created by Bridges and Goldstein.
Season one of AMC’s first anthology drama will consist of six one-hour episodes. The network is targeting a 2020 premiere.
“This is AMC’s first foray into non-serialized story-telling, and we’re trying to do so in the boldest way possible. The show explores how technological innovation can impact the most delicate matters of the heart, and each episode will turn personal life choices into high-stakes drama. It’s a fresh yet relatable idea, portrayed through wildly entertaining tales with unexpected twists, humor, and meaningful emotion,” said David Madden, president of programming for AMC Networks and AMC Studios. “Will and Brett are immensely talented creators, and we are thrilled to have these new and observant voices on AMC.”
“I’m thrilled to be working on this show with AMC,” said Will Bridges. “To get the opportunity to expand on the short film Brett and I made and tell new stories about how messed up love can make a person is something we’re both very grateful for and extremely excited about.”
“I am extremely excited and honoured to make our show about soulmates with AMC, the network responsible for at least two of my favourite shows, one of which I definitely watched legally,” added Brett Goldstein.
The anthology will be executive produced by Bridges, Goldstein, and Jolyon Symonds.
“Each episode of the Untitled Bridges/Goldstein Project will feature an entirely new story and different cast, a first-time format for AMC. The series takes place 15 years from now, when science makes a discovery that changes the lives of everyone on the planet – a way to find your soul mate. The series uses the sci-fi conceit to tell six provocative stories about the cost of finding true love, all different in tone and featuring a spectrum of people and relationships.”
