Amazon Studios Pulls Plug On Chris Carter's 'The After'

the-after

What has come as a surprise to many, Amazon Studios has decided not to move forward with the Chris Carter series The After.

As first reported exclusively by Variety, the series would have marked Carter's first return to television since his hit series The X-files. The After follows eight strangers who are thrown together by mysterious forces and must help each other survive in a violent world that defies explanation. The cast included Adrian Pasdar, Aldis Hodge, Jamie Kennedy and Sharon Lawrence.

The After along with Bosch were the first two dramas picked up by Amazon Studios in March of 2014. Both pilots received great fan response and that led to them both being picked up to series. This is the first time Amazon Studios has given the greenlight for a series only to rescind the order.

AMC has cast Hong Kong film star Daniel Wu as the lead of the network's martial arts drama “Badlands” (working title). Wu also serves as an executive producer on the series.

“Badlands” is a genre-bending martial arts series very loosely based on the classic Chinese tale “Journey to the West.” In a land controlled by feudal barons, “Badlands” tells the story of a ruthless, well-trained warrior named Sunny (Wu) and a young boy who embark on a journey across a dangerous land to find enlightenment.

“After working together with such a talented team of executive producers, writers and executives at AMC, I am excited for the opportunity to bring this character to life‎," said Wu.
