New York Magazine advises that AMC has recently “quietly approached NBC Universal to inquire about just how much money would be needed to produce original episodes.” An excerpt:
“There hasn't been any movement on the matter since the original discussions, but there are reasons why AMC might want to open up its wallet: While ratings for Bad and Men have been rising, they're still relatively small compared to other cable hits. Last month's Breaking Bad season finale, for example, was watched by just 1.6 million viewers, as compared to the 3 million or so who tuned in for June’s Drop Dead Diva premiere on Lifetime. And last spring, 3.5 million viewers watched first-run episodes of Law & Order: Criminal Intent on USA: Assuming L&O could generate similar numbers on AMC, the established series could prove to be a potent way for AMC to market its homegrown shows to viewers who might not already be hip to the unique charms of Don Draper and Walter White. “
