If you were riveted by the season finale of 'Breaking Bad' last night, you probably did what I did and stuck around to watch the special preview of 'Rubicon,' AMC's latest drama series.
In vein of '70s classics like 'The Parallax View' and 'Three Days of the Condor,' 'Rubicon' is an intense conspiracy thriller that hits all the right notes. James Badge Dale, best known for '24' and 'The Pacific,' plays Will Travers, a young intelligence analyst who investigates various oddities at the Manhattan-based American Policy Institute.
His life is fairly mundane -- that is, until he stumbles upon patterns in various newspaper crossword puzzles. These patters, he discovers, could be the first step towards uncovering a larger conspiracy plot that may involve some of his closest colleagues.
What does it all mean? The more Will digs, the more danger he finds.
Watch the full pilot preview below, then tell us: Will you watch 'Rubicon' (premiering Sun., Aug. 1) this summer?
