AMC Ventures Out to Area 51

Chris Savage

This one could be good, it definitely sound’s intriguing. We all know that AMC are well known for great TV series’ from The Walking Dead to Breaking Bad and everything in between, they certainly know potential when they see it.

So how about they dabble in the secrets of Area 51? Well, the NYPost has exclusively learned that AMC has recently closed a deal on a new scripted series, Area 51, based on the best-selling book of the same name by Annie Jacobsen

Keeping with The Walking Dead in mind, Gale Anne Hurd, is said to be serving as executive producer while Todd E. Kessler (“The Unit,” “The Good Wife,” “Rome”) is penning the project for the screen.

“The 1950s/’60’s-era series will focus on the workers in Area 51 who protect America’s deepest, darkest secrets — including the remains of the “alien” crash at Roswell — and how they become infected with Cold War paranoia.”

Jacobsen maintains in her book that the “aliens found at the Roswell crash site weren’t from another planet but were the horrible results of American experiments on human beings .”

At this time it is still early days, but would you be up to watching some Area 51 secrets unfold?
