AMC To Branch Into Scripted Comedy With Random Acts, Sober Buddies And More

With Breaking Bad long gone and Mad Men set to head off the air in spring 2015, the executives at AMC know that they cannot sustain their impressive growth purely through the success of The Walking Dead. That’s why the cable network announced on Wednesday that they will push forward with scripted comedy and are developing around a half-dozen new shows.

Among these potential hits is Random Acts, an adaptation of Andrea Abbate’s play about thirty-something girlfriends Katie and Lisa – who make their living as contract killers. Abbate will write and executive produce the single-camera comedy, which could be on the air as early as 2015. Further, executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Superbad) are helming Sober Buddies, about a pro surfer turned sober coach who has to deal with own problems as he goes off the wagon.

Meanwhile, AMC greenlit its first series pilot, the intriguing We Hate Paul Revere.
