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.
