AMC has developed a very strong television slate thanks to the critically acclaimed Breaking Bad and Mad Men. The network will continue to explore new endeavors over the summer and the fall with Rubicon and The Walking Dead, and while comic book fans are certainly excited over the zombie-centric show's arrival, few people have had any clue whatsoever as for what to expect from Rubicon, a purported political conspiracy thriller starring James Badge Dale.

AMC's Rubicon, starring James Badge Dale and Miranda Richardson, premieres on August 1 with a special two-hour episode starting at 8:00 PM eastern time.
