Lee Pace, Jamie Bell to star in new AMC dramas

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — AMC says it has ordered two new dramas that are expected to debut in 2014.

The cable channel said Friday that “Halt & Catch Fire” is set in the early 1980s and looks at the personal computing explosion through the eyes of a visionary engineer. It stars Lee Pace of TV’s “Pushing Daisies” and the film “Lincoln.”

The other drama, “Turn,” is based on the book “Washington’s Spies” by historian Alexander Rose. It stars Jamie Bell of the movie “Billy Elliot” and “King Kong.”

“Turn” is set in 1778 and tells the story of a New York farmer who joins a group of spies fighting for American independence.
