AMC's latest pilot, Knifeman, will go into production in London shortly. The drama will star Tim Roth, who is known for his work on TV on the show Lie to Me. He will be returning to the small screen in this show based off of Wendy Moore's biography of 18th-century surgeon John Hunter.
Craig Zisk will be directing Knifeman for the AMC network.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Knifeman will be one of the largest TV shows to start production over in London.
Film London, which is one of the largest U.K. government backed agencies tasked with growing London’s production industries, expressed their excitement about the AMC drama coming across the pond. AMC is known for breakthrough shows like Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead and Mad Men.
