AMC Mulls Talk Shows About Its Drama Series
The cable network has shot a pilot with former MTV personality Chris Hardwick that is in the vein of Andy Cohen’s ‘Watch What Happens: Live’ on Bravo, but focused on AMC hit ‘The Walking Dead.’
NEW YORK – AMC hit drama The Walking Dead, along with Mad Men and Breaking Bad, could get companion talk shows in the vein of Andy Cohen-hosted Watch What Happens: Live on Bravo, New York Magazine’s Vulture reported.
AMC hired Watch What Happens: Live executive producer Michael Davies and his production firm Embassy Row Productions, to shoot a pilot, it said. The pilot used former MTV personality Chris Hardwick, who most recently hosted BBC America's Doctor Who specials, and focused on Walking Dead.
Vulture highlighted that a cheap-to-produce companion talk show could give AMC an opportunity to hold on to viewers after its hit shows air.
Watch What Happens: Live pulled in an average of more than 1.5 million viewers last season and sometimes beat late-night competition such as The Daily Show, it said.
An AMC spokeswoman declined comment.
