AMC Thursday added to its scripted drama lineup with a straight-to-series order for its new drama Broke.
The 10-episode series, a co-production between AMC Studios and Lionsgate, is based on the Danish series Bankerot and follows two best friends with conflicting backgrounds who take one last shot at opening a restaurant together. The 10-episode series will debut in 2016, according to the network.
Clyde Phillips (Dexter, Nurse Jackie) will serve as executive producer for the series.
“Clyde Phillips is a supremely talented creator we’ve known and admired for years,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president. “Through his work on Dexter and Nurse Jackie, Clyde has repeatedly demonstrated his skill for crafting complex, flawed, yet irresistible characters, and we’re looking forward to him bringing his continued brilliance to Broke.
