AMC Further Expands Portfolio with Sci-Fi Drama ‘Thunderstruck’

By on November 14, 2011

In a move which further expands its unique portfolio, AMC (The Walking Dead, Hell on Wheels, Mad Men, Breaking Bad) recently bought scifi drama pilot Thunderstruck from writing/directing partners Paul Boardman and Scott Derrickson and Battlestar Galactica executive producer David Eick.

In what might be another alien invasion style drama, Deadline recently described Thunderstruck as being set against a backdrop of powerful and enigmatic entities which suddenly start appearing all over the world.  In the town of Great Falls, Montana, the local populace struggle to understand the mystery of these visits.

More as we have it.

    I’m intrigued! David Eick did a great job on BSG … depending on how involved he is in this project, it could be something good.

    I’m quietly impressed with everything AMC puts out. Let’s wait and see.

    ‘Thunderstruck’ seems like the popular Steven Speilberg’s ‘Taken’ which came out years back. Looking forward to it.

    Looks like AMC will soon be competing with HBO and to make more interesting battle FX is also rising up quickly to the same leve. 3 great channels with the best dramas.

    I haven’t watched any of the new AMC shows cause im not into zombies, but this has peeked my interest and more scifi is never a bad thing. I have to laugh because it seems like syfy is slowly being outdone on the scifi front by other stations.
