AMC Orders 6 Episodes of Episodic Anthology from 'Black Mirror's Will Bridges

AMC has today given a series order to an untitled original episodic anthology series created by Will Bridges (Black Mirror) and Brett Goldstein (Hoff the Record). The first season will produce six episodes.

The untitled series is set 15 years in the future, when science makes a discovery that changes the lives of everyone on the planet - a way for people to find their soulmate. Each episode will tell the story of a different couple and explore the cost of finding true love, with each one different in tone and featuring a spectrum of characters and relationships.

Bridges and Goldstein will executive produce with Jolyon Symonds. AMC Studios and Fearless Minds will produce.

"This is AMC's first foray into non-serialized storytelling, and we're trying to do so in the boldest way possible," said David Madden, President of Programming, 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, humor and meaningful emotion. Will and Brett are immensely talented creators, and we are thrilled to have these new and observant voices on AMC."
