After striking gold with Mad Men, AMC is looking to keep the rush going with another original series.
The cable channel is currently developing the drama “Sugar Hill,” about a black cop and a white cop who team up on the turbulent and unpredictable streets of late-1960s Harlem, reports Variety.
“As with all our other projects, this seemed to lend itself to unique and interesting characters and the promise of a really cinematic series,” said Jeremy Elice, AMC’s VP of original programming.
The cable channel, home of the Emmy-winning ’60s drama “Mad Men,” has been ramping up its development slate, including the recently announced legal drama “Rectify” and the sci-fi project “Red Mars.”
“Sugar Hill” comes from former actor Alex Winter (“Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure”), who most recently directed Cartoon Network’s movie “Ben 10”; Steven Pearl (A&E’s upcoming “The Beast”); and Allan Loeb (“New Amsterdam”).
