HN Entertainment can reveal that director Rob Savage (Strings, Dawn of The Deaf) has joined AMC’s upcoming science-fiction series For Life and will tackle an episode.
Rob having directed three episodes in the second season of Britannia.
For Life (current working title) is a new 6-episode (an hour-long each) anthology series from television writer William Bridges (Stranger Things, Black Mirror) and comedian/actor Brett Goldstein which is based on their short film of the same title.
Here is some information about the series from AMC’s previous press release about the show.
AMC announced today that it has greenlit a new, yet-to-be-titled original episodic anthology drama created by Emmy-Award winning writer Will Bridges (Black Mirror, Stranger Things) and Brett Goldstein (Superbob, Adult Life Skills). Bridges and Goldstein will executive produce with Jolyon Symonds through Fearless Minds, a Banijay Group company (Thorne series for Sky One, Complicit). 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.
Each episode of the Untitled Bridges/Goldstein Project will feature an entirely new story and different cast, a first-time format for 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. Bridges and Goldstein previously created the short film “For Life,” which serves as the basis for this new, original series.
Bridges wrote Black Mirror’s U.S.S. Callister along with the distributing episode Shut Up and Dance.
There is an expectation that William Bridges will also direct an episode.
We can also report that they’ve hired production designer Tom Burton to join the series’ production team with credits that include Britannia, The Night Manager, Red Riding: In The Year of Our Lord 1980, and HBO’s upcoming miniseries Catherine The Great starring Helen Mirren.
For Life is expected to begin airing sometime on AMC in 2020.
