Elice scripts role at AMC

Hire reflects cabler's commitment to original dramas

AMC has hired Jeremy Elice to head up the cabler’s West Coast scripted development.

Elice, whose title will be director of scripted series and movies, will be the cabler’s key programming exec in Los Angeles. He’ll report to scripted VP Christina Wayne, who joined AMC two months ago (Daily Variety, Nov. 16).

Hire reflects AMC’s commitment to launching original dramas. First out of the gate will be “Broken Trail,” the four-hour Western exec produced by and starring Robert Duvall. Cabler also is airing “Hustle,” a heist skein co-produced by the BBC.

“I was thoroughly impressed with (Elice’s) wide breadth of experience in both TV and feature development,” Wayne said. “His background at FX and Mutual Film Co. is the perfect fit for us as we try to develop television shows with a cinematic feel.”

Elice said he’ll be the cabler’s go-to guy on the West Coast and hopes to “develop programming that reflects our brand. We’re not looking for anything procedural. We would like our viewers to watch one of our movies and transition right into a series (of equal quality).”

Most recently, Elice was director of creative and strategic development for Mutual Film. There he secured funding for and helped develop film projects including Samuel L. Jackson starrer “Snakes on a Plane.” He also worked in FX’s programming and public relations department.
