Pantheon: AMC Greenlights Animated Drama With Two-Season Order

According to Variety, AMC has picked up a two-season order for the animated sci-fi drama Pantheon, based on a series of short stories by Ken Liu about Uploaded Intelligence, aka, human consciousness uploaded to the cloud. The one-hour series from creator Craig Silverstein will become the first animated show AMC has ever greenlit.

The first season will contain eight-episode while focusing on the character of Maddie, a bullied teen who receives mysterious help from someone online. The stranger is soon revealed to be her recently deceased father, David, whose consciousness has been uploaded to the cloud following an experimental destructive brain scan. David is the first of a new kind of being: an “Uploaded Intelligence” or “UI”, but he will not be the last, as a global conspiracy unfolds that threatens to trigger a new kind of world war.

“Pantheon is an entertaining and provocative series about personal relationships and what happens to them when the boundary of life is removed from the human condition,” said Sarah Barnett, president of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios. “And we’re looking to push other boundaries here too, in making an animated drama that aims to be every bit as moving, immersive and visceral as any premium, live-action scripted series. We are fortunate to have incredible source material from Ken Liu, one of the most celebrated science fiction writers at work today, and we are delighted to once again be working with Craig Silverstein. Both of these writers know how to weave the intimate and the epic into a powerful tale.”
