AMC has ordered a pilot for a geopolitical drama that from Low Winter Sun‘s Chris Mundy, The Live Feed reports.
Created by Nick McDonell and John Dempsey with Chris Mundy and Tom Freston, White City is set in Afghanistan and follows a group of Western diplomats and journalists. It centers on Jon Liston, a “war junkie” who’s spent most of the past decade in Kabul.
The project joins Knifeman and Galyntine on the cable channel’s pilot slate.
“This is a story born from a creative team in Chris, John, Nick and Tom that has both an incredibly deep understanding of one of the most misunderstood regions of the world, and a fantastic sense of how to tell a compelling story about the lives of people who are drawn to the world’s hot spots,” AMC’s Joel Stillerman said in a statement. “It’s not a war story, it’s a character story that will tackle some of the most complicated issues of our time.”
