“We are thrilled to be in business with Jonathan and excited to have him create here at AMC, starting with showrunning ‘Halt & Catch Fire,’” said Susie Fitzgerald, AMC’s senior veep of scripted development. “He has a unique perspective on characters that is really in line with ours – they are deep, layered and do very unexpected things.”

He is repped by UTA and attorney Ken Richman.
