AMC greenlights anthology drama from Black Mirror writer

AMC announced today that it has greenlit a new, untitled episodic anthology drama created by Emmy-Award winning writer Will Bridges (Black Mirror episodes “USS Callister” and “Shut Up and Dance”) and Brett Goldstein (Superbob, Adult Life Skills). Bridges and Goldstein will executive produce with Jolyon Symonds through Fearless Minds, a Banijay Group company. The Untitled Bridges/Goldstein Project, produced by AMC Studios, will consist of six, hour-long episodes, and is slated for a 2020 debut on AMC.

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. Bridges and Goldstein previously created the short film “For Life,” which serves as the basis for this new, original series.

“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.”

Said Bridges, “I’m thrilled to be working on this show with AMC. 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.”

Said Goldstein, “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.”
