AMC Orders Pilot Presentation For Animated “Pantheon” Series

Here’s what we know.

Deadline is reporting that AMC is working on adapting Ken Liu’s sci-fi short stories with Craig Silverstein for a new primetime animated series called Pantheon. The network has reportedly set up a writers room for the series with an animated pilot presentation being produced as well. Silverstein would be the showrunner, creator, producer, and writer for Pantheon. 

Our Take

It has been eons since a network has taken on a serious effort on doing something in animation that isn’t strictly comedy. AMC has a great history of adapting works like Walking Dead for TV series and Pantheon could be a great opportunity for the network to do something fresh in an age where only the streaming services are really taking chances.
