Throughout the past few years, AMC has established itself as one of the premiere channels with truly engrossing content that keeps people coming back for more. With The Walking Dead, the network struck gold, and now it seems they are doubling down on the horror formula with a whole new show.
According to Deadline, AMC is bringing Joe Hill's NOS4A2 to the small screen, and this could be huge news for horror and TV fans alike. As the son of Stephen King, Hill comes from a legacy of scary storytelling, but he's also carved out a name for himself totally on his own merits as proven by the bestselling novel.
Here's the synopsis of the book from Amazon:
Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. On her Raleigh Tuff Burner bike, she makes her way to a rickety covered bridge that, within moments, takes her wherever she needs to go, whether it’s across Massachusetts or across the country.
Charles Talent Manx has a way with children. He likes to take them for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the NOS4A2 vanity plate. With his old car, he can slip right out of the everyday world, and onto the hidden roads that transport them to an astonishing – and terrifying – playground of amusements he calls “Christmasland.”
Then, one day, Vic goes looking for trouble—and finds Manx. That was a lifetime ago. Now Vic, the only kid to ever escape Manx’s unmitigated evil, is all grown up and desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx never stopped thinking about Victoria McQueen. He’s on the road again and he’s picked up a new passenger: Vic’s own son.
Sounds like AMC is adding bloodsuckers to their successful use of brain-eaters, and judging by past success, this will probably be the beginnings of must-watch TV.
