The network dips into the same well again with the limited event series "The American West," a docudrama that shows how, in the aftermath of the Civil War, the United States transforms into the "land of opportunity," a violent world dominated by cowboys, Indians, outlaws and law men. Across eight episodes, little-known stories are told of Western legends such as Jesse James, Billy the Kid, Wyatt Earp, Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull. The series also features exclusive interviews with notable names from classic Western films, including James Caan, Tom Selleck, Kiefer Sutherland, Ed Harris and more.

The soft spots that fans of "The Walking Dead" have for Norman Reedus, who portrays volatile survivalist Daryl Dixon on the mega-popular series, is sure to grow after Reedus opens up on the open road. In "Ride With Norman Reedus," the motorcycle enthusiast hops on his favorite two wheelers to explore local bike culture and celebrate the best collectors, mechanics and motorcycle craftsmen around the country. Each hourlong episode begins in a different city, where Reedus hooks up with a riding companion -- an actor, musician, friend or local motorcycle fan -- to visit places like custom bike shops, tattoo parlors, collectors' depots, and roadside smokehouses. There's ample time for impromptu detours and tire changes, too.
AMC dives into the comic book culture with this unscripted series that follows the antics of the "fanboys" in and around Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash, a New Jersey comic shop owned by writer-director Kevin Smith.

Smith has been a comics fan since his youth and has written several comic books based on his movies, including "Clerks," as well as story arcs for the legendary "Green Arrow" and "Daredevil" comics.

It revolves around Abe Woodhull, a young farmer torn between loyalty to his Tory background and respect for those who fight for the Patriot cause. Living on British-occupied Long Island, Abe joins a group of his childhood friends to form what becomes known as the Culper Ring, a spy network charged with sniffing out British military strategy. Under the direction of Gen. Washington, Abe and his fellow agents help turn the war to the Continentals' favor, and their daring efforts ultimately serve as the foundation for modern espionage.
