AMC re-ups ‘Shootout’

Cabler greenlights 'V Life' pilot

AMC has awarded an unusually long 39-episode renewal to “Sunday Morning Shootout,” the insiders’ look at the movie business hosted by Peter Bart, editor-in-chief of Variety, and Peter Guber, chairman of Mandalay Pictures.

As part of the renewal, AMC has greenlit “V Life,” the pilot for a series of hourlong specials based on Variety‘s bimonthly magazine. Like the print magazine, “V Life” will deal with celebrities, lifestyles and showbiz trends.

Rob Sorcher, senior VP of programming and production for AMC, said the renewal of “Shootout” was a no-brainer because the show “brings a Hollywood authenticity to AMC. The show continues to attract smart and interesting talent, and offers both topical content and candid voices not found anywhere else on television.”

Since it began on AMC in October, “Shootout” has featured conversations with, among others, Sylvester Stallone, Mel Gibson, Jack Black, Clint Eastwood, Kevin Costner, Charlize Theron, Peter Jackson, Sherry Lansing and Laura Linney.

Forthcoming guests include Garry Marshall, Matthew Perry and Andy Garcia.

Scott Sternberg Prods. produces “Shootout.” In conjunction with Variety‘s editorial team, Sternberg will also do the honors with “V Life.”
