AMC Mines Red Mars for New Sci-Fi Series Wired

AMC is going to Mars.
Hot on the heels of its Emmy wins for Mad Men and Breaking Bad, the cable channel is making its move into sci-fi by developing a new series based on Red Mars, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Writer-producer Jonathan Hensleigh (Armageddon, Die Hard: With a Vengeance) will be in charge of adapting Kim Stanley Robinson’s classic 1992 novel, which describes a team of humans as they attempt to colonize the planet.
