Max Headroom Reboot in Development at AMC Networks #cyberpunk
Wow, I didn’t have this on my cyberpunk bingo card:
A 1980s pop culture mainstay is plotting a comeback. AMC Networks is developing a Max Headroom drama series reboot, with Matt Frewer set to reprise his role as the world’s first artificial intelligence TV personality. Halt and Catch Fire co-creator Christopher Cantwell is writing the adaptation and is attached as showrunner for the project, which is produced by Elijah Wood and Daniel Noah’s SpectreVision and All3Media.
Given the bizarro world we are now living it, which rivals anything we saw in the original Max Headroom series, we could use Max’s take-no-prisoners cultural commentary and bitraking journalism right about now.
