In the current issue of the Observer, I take a long look at the creation of AMC's new drama, Halt and Catch Fire, which was inspired by a local software salesman and co-created by that salesman's son, Plano-born screenwriter Chris Cantwell.
You should totally read it. Really. But you could also just watch the damn show. Although it doesn't premiere on AMC until Sunday, June 1, it's available to watch for free right now, on Tumblr, through a new partnership between AMC and Yahoo. Give it a look and let us know what you think. And if you're interested in how it came to be, check out that cover story, "The Unlikely Engineering of Halt and Catch Fire."
