AMC Networks Greenlights Untitled Jonathan Glatzer Series

NEW YORK, NY – June 27, 2024 – AMC Networks today announced it has greenlit an as yet untitled dramatic series from AMC Studios for AMC and AMC+ from writer and showrunner Jonathan Glatzer (Succession, Bad Sisters, Better Call Saul).

The series is set inside the bubble of Silicon Valley, amid misguided corporate cultures, moony innovation labs and cutthroat private high schools. In our story, a scandal is sparked by the exploitation of personal data which unravels out of a rift between a self-appointed “inventor of the future” tech CEO and his self-serving “performance psychologist.” This act of corruption quickly spirals out of control for all involved, exposing the absurdities of ambition, corporate ethics, and the fallibility of the people who are shaping the future of our world.

“Get ready for a captivating, enthralling, authentic look behind the curtain of Silicon Valley,” said Dan McDermott, president of entertainment and AMC Studios for AMC Networks. “Jonathan is a massive talent and AMC is lucky to be the home of this, his first series creation brought to life. The show, which chronicles the lives of characters creating the world we will all inhabit, is right here and right now. Truth is stranger than fiction, especially here.”

“The tech world and the future it is offering is in the hands of some frighteningly self-involved people. They radiate a bizarre, semi-deity-like energy, but even they cannot escape their own humanity. So rather than do something directly about ‘tech,’ I wanted to focus on the people. And not just the titans, but the antsy wannabe titans, the kids and spouses of the wannabes; their housekeepers, their schools, their psychiatrists, their dogs and gurus alike, all of them living in this bubble where they truly believe — and perhaps rightly — they are inventing the future, dogs excepted,” Glatzer said. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to be doing this with AMC. At a time when networks are looking for fastballs and strikes, I gave them a darkly comedic curveball, and to their tremendous credit, they have given me nothing but the greatest support a writer could ask for.”
