AMC Hopes Reality Show's Gonna Fly Now

In addition to the series, which was unveiled to advertisers is New York as part of cable's upfront presentations to advertisers, the channel is linking with Entertainment Weekly and Premiere magazines on a variety of specials.

First out of the blocks will be 20 Scariest Movies of All Time, slated for an October debut.
