Not sure how to fill the Bryan-Cranston-bald-pate shaped hole in your heart now that Breaking Bad is no more? A source close to the situation just tipped me off that AMC is right on the brink of picking up two new dramas: Knifeman and Galyntine. This story is still breaking, and updates will continue to come as pickups are officially announced.

Knifeman, written by playwright Rolin Jones (who also produced Low Winter Sun for the net) and executive produced by Sam Raimi, is based on the book The Knifeman: The Extraordinary Life and Times of John Hunter, Father of Modern Surgery. The series focuses on an unorthodox self-educated surgeon who will go to any length to learn the secrets of the human body in 1771.

Galyntine, written by writer Jason Cahill and produced by Ridley Scott and Greg Nicotero, of The Walking Dead, is a sci-fi saga set in a futuristic dystopian society; plot details have been kept under wrap to date.
