AMC is going from meth to diamonds.
The cable network is developing three projects, including a drama set in the world of diamond trading from executive producers Ridley and Tony Scott (The Good Wife).
Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead scribe Kelly Masterson will write and executive produce the untitled diamond project with Scott Free Productions’ president of television David Zucker also on board as an EP.
In addition, the home of zombies (The Walking Dead), meth addicts (Breaking Bad) and ad executives (Mad Men) is developing crime dramas Low Winter Sun and Sacred Games.
Low Winter Sun is based on the 2006 two-part British drama that starred Mark Strong. Jeremy Gold will serve as a nonwriting executive producer for the modern gothic tale of murder, high-level corruption, deception and cold-blooded revenge in which the difference between cop and criminal is anything but straightforward. The project, from Endemol, continues AMC’s relationship with Gold, who is among the executive producers on the cabler’s upcoming Union Pacific railroad drama Hell on Wheels.
Sacred Games, developed in-house, is based on the India-set novel of the same name by Vikram Chandra. It revolves around the spidery links between organized crime, local politics and Indian espionage that lie below the surfaces of its economic renaissance. Feature scribe Kerry Williamson (Alexander Payne’s upcoming Fork in the Road) is attached to write and executive produce the project. Anna Garduno will also exec produce.
