Holy crap, this sounds promising. AMC wants a new genre show to serve as a companion piece to The Walking Dead, and according to Deadline, they're developing Ballistic City, described as "Blade Runner meets Battlestar Galactica." Crime on a generation ship!

More info on the The Walking Dead companion piece, please. The Telltale game showed that the universe is rich enough for new stories, but I can imagine it would be something different in scope. Something not about a group of lone survivors, but maybe soldiers or politicians. Another look at the universe.
