AMC developing alien contact drama from 'Breaking Bad' writer

by James Hibberd
TV Pilots

AMC is developing a new drama series about man’s first contact with extraterrestrial life.

John Shiban (Breaking Bad, The Vampire Diaries) is working on a project called The Voyage that’s in contention for a pilot pickup. The show is billed as a realistic take on First Contact with an ambitious female scientist who works with a team at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory as the lead character.

The project is one of several in contention at AMC, but has more buzz than some (two others are The Man With the Golden Ears, about a record executive, and The 4th Estate, about a D.C. investigative journalist — but let’s face it, you want the alien one, right?). Given AMC’s success with zombies on The Walking Dead, wouldn’t surprise me at all if network tackled extraterrestrials next.

That sounds awesome.

The only downside...there's mention of the Vampire diaries.

John Shiban wrote some of the worst episodes of The X-Files. Here's hoping he's learned a bit more about sf and aliens in the last ten years.
