Black Mirror’s Bridges preps AMC drama

Will Bridges

US cable network AMC has greenlit an episodic anthology series created by writers Will Bridges (Black Mirror, Stranger Things) and Brett Goldstein (Superbob, Adult Life Skills).

The drama, which is yet to be titled, will consist of six hour-long episodes, each of which will feature an entirely new story and cast.

The series takes place 15 years from now, when scientists make a discovery that changes the lives of everyone on Earth: a way to find your soulmate. Each episode will tell a story about the cost of finding true love, featuring a spectrum of people and relationships.

The show is based on a Bridges and Goldstein’s short film For Life and is set to debut on AMC in 2020.

It will be exec produced by Bridges and Goldstein with Jolyon Symonds through UK-based Fearless Minds, a Banijay Group company set up by Symonds in 2017.

“This is AMC’s first foray into non-serialised storytelling and we’re trying to do so in the boldest way possible,” said David Madden, president of programming for AMC Networks and AMC Studios.

“The show explores how technological innovation can impact the most delicate matters of the heart, and each episode will turn personal life choices into high-stakes drama. It’s a fresh yet relatable idea, portrayed through wildly entertaining tales with unexpected twists, humour and meaningful emotion.”
