Our corporate cousins over at AMC’s Breaking Bad blog caught up with that show’s co-Executive Producer Melissa Bernstein and guess what? She couldn’t help but share some insight into her next big project, Sundance Channel’s new original series Rectify. Check out what the show has in common with Breaking Bad so you can be ready for the big premiere on Monday, April 22nd at 9PM.
FROM THE PRODUCERS OF AWARD-WINNING BREAKING BAD, THIS PROJECT IS SUNDANCE CHANNEL’S FIRST WHOLLY-OWNED PRODUCTION
PREMIERES SIMULTANEOUSLY ON SUNDANCE CHANNEL GLOBAL
Further solidifying Sundance Channel’s commitment to high quality scripted programming, the channel today greenlit original scripted series RECTIFY with a six episode order. The hour-long legal drama was created and written by Academy Award winner Ray McKinnon (The Accountant) who also serves as executive producer on the project. The series represents the first wholly owned Sundance Channel scripted production. In addition, it will be the first project to premiere simultaneously on Sundance Channel in the United States and on Sundance Channel Global in countries throughout Europe, Asia and North America.
Veteran producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein of production company Gran Via will also serve as executive producers. This marks the second project for Johnson and Bernstein with AMC Networks. The first is AMC’s Emmy Award-winning series, Breaking Bad.
