AMC plots pipeline strategy

|About: AMC Networks Inc. (AMCX)|By:, SA News Editor

AMC show Better Call Saul has been renewed for a second year even before a single episode of the first season has aired.

The network owned by AMC Entertainment (AMCX -2.2%) expects to premiere the show early next year.

What to watch: Though the early investment in the series by AMC could be considered risky, it might pay off when carriage deals are renegotiated with the AMC pipeline looking more solid.
