It doesn’t officially premiere until August, but AMC aired a sneak preview of the entire pilot for the conspiracy thriller Rubicon on the heels of last night’s superlative Breaking Bad finale. But in case you missed it, AMC wants to make sure you get a chance to check it out: the network has posted the entire episode online, and will rerun it periodically throughout the week.
I really liked the episode — it appealed to the math geek in me. So if there’s a speck of math geek in you, if you like the slow-burn thrillers of the seventies, or if you’re bit of a conspiracy nut, you can find the online edition of the premiere episode of Rubicon after the jump.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Rubicon is a conspiracy thriller starring James Badge Dale (who earlier this year headlined HBO’s The Pacific) as an analyst at a New York City think-tank who is thrown into a story where nothing is as it appears to be. Henry Bromell (Homicide, Chicago Hope, Brotherhood) has signed on as showrunner. The one-hour, 13-episode weekly series is produced by Warner Horizon Television and premieres this summer.
The series cast includes James Badge Dale (The Pacific, The Departed), Oscar-nominated actress Miranda Richardson (Sleepy Hollow), Dallas Roberts (Walk the Line, Flicka, The L Word), Jessica Collins (The Nine, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), Christopher Evan Welch (Vicky Cristina Barcelona), Lauren Hodges (Law & Order), and Arliss Howard (Full Metal Jacket, Natural Born Killers, The Sandlot).
Rubicon officially premieres on August 1st at 8/7c.
