AMC Greenlights “99 Stories”
AMC has given the green light for a new genre series, 99 Stories.
The sci-fi/horror series will follow a group of strangers stuck in a 99-story skyscraper, with the building itself deciding who lives and who dies.
The show comes from James Middleton (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), David Seltzer (The Omen) and Steven Banks.
“Each story presents a different kind of challenge for the group,” Seltzer told The Hollywood Reporter. “The elevators are in control of destiny, whittling them out by deciding who they deem deserve[s] to go up.”
Christina Wayne, AMC vice president of original series, said the network is aiming for a “cinematic” take on the horror sci-fi genre.
“We want to do original programming that is cinematic and flows seemingly into the films,” she said. “This seemed like the perfect fit.”
