AMC has ordered an episodic anthology series centered on the intersection of love and science from Brett Goldstein and “Black Mirror” writer Will Bridges.
Per AMC, the series takes place 15 years from now, when science makes a discovery that changes the lives of everyone on the planet – a way to find your soul mate. The series uses the sci-fi conceit to tell six provocative stories about the cost of finding true love, all different in tone and featuring a spectrum of people and relationships. Each episode will feature an entirely new story and different cast, a first-time format for AMC.
Bridges and Goldstein previously created the short film “For Life,” which serves as the basis for this new, original series.
Bridges and Goldstein will executive produce with Jolyon Symonds through Fearless Minds, a Banijay Group company. The Untitled Bridges/Goldstein Project, produced by AMC Studios, will consist of six, hour-long episodes, and is slated for a 2020 debut on AMC.
“This is AMC’s first foray into non-serialized story-telling, and we’re trying to do so in the boldest way possible. 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, humor, and meaningful emotion,” David Madden, president of programming for AMC Networks and AMC Studios, said. “Will and Brett are immensely talented creators, and we are thrilled to have these new and observant voices on AMC.”
Bridges co-wrote the Emmy-winning episode “USS Callister” of “Black Mirror.”
