AMC has ordered two pilots, "Knifeman" and "Galyntine" for 2015. Set in 18th-century London, "Knifeman" will focus on the untold story of a charming, decorum-breaking genius who challenges societal
norms. A surgeon or “barber," John Tattersal is a hard-drinking, hard-living man not afraid to push the boundaries of modern medicine. "Knifeman" is inspired by the biography of John Hunter by
Wendy Moore, “The Knife Man: Blood, Body Snatching and the Birth of Modern Surgery." "Galyntine" is a fantasy/action, sci-fi adventure. The pilot takes place at a time after a cataclysmic
technology-induced disaster resulting in a new society that avoids any form of technology.
