AMC has promoted Ben Davis to SVP of scripted programming. He will continue to report to Susie Fitzgerald, SVP of scripted development and current programming. Davis is an AMC veteran, having joined the network in 2005, just as it was transforming itself into an original programming player. He was part of the team behind AMC’s first original program, hit miniseries Broken Trail, as well as the pilots for Breaking Bad, Mad Men and Rubicon. He has served as the day-to-day creative executive in charge of Breaking Bad and Mad Men (first three seasons) and The Killing and has overseen all seasons of hit The Walking Dead, including the upcoming fifth. Recently, he developed the pilots Halt And Catch Fire and Turn, and is shepherding their first seasons. He also spearheaded the development of AMC’s most recent pilots, Knifeman and Galyntine, which will begin production this spring, and supervises creative development for the Breaking Bad spinoff, Better Call Saul, currently in pre-production for a November premiere.
