Tomorrow, the season finale airs at 10p/9c on AMC.

It’s a major milestone in a process that begin more than three and a half years ago in a windowless office at our day jobs in North Burbank, when Chris Rogers and I—neither of us professional writers—decided to write a one-hour drama script about the early days of personal computing.  Never in our wildest dreams did we think it would actually become a series on television. 

In the recent weeks, many friends, family members, and people I’ve never met but who are fans of the show have asked me if there’s going to be a second season.

The honest answer is: I don’t know.

Well documented and exciting times. Hope this show gets the recognition it deserves with another 7 seasons.

Love it when Tumblr tells me a little story.

Cool thing that Wyatt directed with tons of very nice people.

Trailer for Star Wars in the style of the Guardians of the Galaxy.  Very well edited.

Timed perfectly to coincide with the 25h anniversary of ROAD HOUSE, we digitally premiered HALT on Tumblr today!

June 1st is still two weeks away, but the first episode was just released as a sneak preview on AMC’s official Tumblr page. 

Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to go hide under the bed.

Sick ass shit. Already watched!

So damn excited for our pal Chris Cantwell and his new show Halt and Catch Fire, premiering on AMC on June 1.

Check out the trailer here / at the end of the Walking Dead finale tonight. Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy, Mackenzie Davis — just accept the fact that you’ve got another AMC addiction coming this summer.

Also, I have to say that watching the torrent and sustained marathon of creative conviction and talent that went in to this project — along with so much sheer slogging hard work is proof that good things happen to people who earn them. Congratulations, friend — Chris and I are so happy for you!

Thanks, guys!! I hope everyone likes the show, or at least 36 people. I’ll feel we nailed it if we hit at least 36. 

Such a thrill to see this on a REAL GODDAMN TV BOX tonight. WATCH THIS SHOW.

We’ll all talk about this a lot more in the summer, but just so you’re prepared — please see above.

If this video were shot horizontally, it’d probably be too awesome to exist.  Thank you, videographer, for thinking ahead.
