AMC Goes to London CD for ‘Knifeman’ Pilot

AMC is turning to London as it searches for a series to replace “Mad Men,” whose final season debuts this month. 

“Knifeman,” a pilot adapted from Wendy Moore’s biography of early medical pioneer John Hunter, is set to be cast by London-based casting director Kate Rhodes James, Backstage has learned.

The drama, which is set in the 18th century, follows an unorthodox self-educated surgeon, played by Tim Roth, who will “go to any length to learn the secrets of the human body.” 

Brian Percival, who worked on “Downton Abbey,” is set to direct the pilot, which is in production in the United Kingdom.
