The new Fear digital series, Dead in the Water, will be scripted and tie into season six of the main show, telling the story of a submarine crew fighting for survival (via Deadline).
Meanwhile, alongside the announcement of a new series of Better Call Saul Employee Training, the Bob Odenkirk show is planning a new animated spin-off called Slippin’ Jimmy.
The series will follow the adventures of the younger Jimmy and Chuck McGill, and will be in the style of Fat Albert, with nods to spaghetti Westerns, Buster Keaton and After Hours.
Additionally, AMC are working on a new series called Cooper’s Bar, which is executive produced and co-directed by Better Call Saul star Rhea Seehorn and follows a man’s dream to create the perfect tiki bar experience in the backyard of his LA bungalow.
