Halt and Catch Fire


Lee Pace is returning to our TVs and suddenly everything feels OK.

The Pushing Daisies star returns in AMC's Halt and Catch Fire, a new drama set in the early 1980s, so it's sure to give us great fashion and music. 

Set roughly a year after IBM pretty much took over the PC market, Halt and Catch Fire follows former IBM executive Joe MacMillan (Pace) as he plans to reverse-engineer the flagship product of his former employer in an attempt to get his current company into the PC race. Pace's character gets help from Gordon Clark (Scoot McNairy), a former engineer and Cameron Howe (Mackenzie Davis), a computer prodigy. All this while his wife, Donna (Kerry Bishe), is unsupportive at first.

Drama? Check. Lee Pace? Check. Computers? Check. Members Only jackets? We can only hope.

Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers created the drama. Jonathan Lisco, Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein also serve as executive producer.

The 10-episode AMC series premieres Sunday, June 1 at 10 p.m. on AMC.
