Regardless of individual opinion, no one can say that AMC doesn’t have one of the most diverse line-ups on television. With the adult, contemporary drama Breaking Bad, the murder mystery The Killing, the horror/thriller The Walking Dead and the period drama Mad Men, there’s no doubt that the network loves their genre work.
And they are about to make another addition to that slate with a western… yes, you read that right. AMC is doing a western titled Hell on Wheels. And here is the first trailer (via Screen Rant):
I’ll say this much, it’s ambitious. But it’s becoming a trend with AMC to see their shows get hyped to the point of no end before they begin, but then really go down in quality as the season goes on (ala The Walking Dead). So I am weary but intrigued by the effort.
Hell on Wheels is set to begin this fall on AMC.
