AMC announced on Friday a new weekly series starring The Walking Dead‘s Jeffrey Dean Morgan and his wife, actor Hilarie Burton Morgan. The series will be a talk show and is filmed at their farm in upstate New York.
The half-hour show will feature the couple connecting with their celebrity friends over video streams, talking about various aspects of their current lives. The series will be focusing on mostly positive stories in an effort to find happiness in our present situation.
“We have been a part of the AMC family for a long time and are honored to create this comforting space with them,” said Morgan and Burton Morgan. “From our home here at Mischief Farm, we look forward to shining a light on those who are doing good in the world, catching up with old friends and connecting with the awesome fan base we’ve gotten to know over the years.”
Guests set for Friday Night In With the Morgans include Morgan’s Walking Dead co-star Christian Serratos, who plays Rosita, and former Walking Dead star Sarah Wayne Callies, who played Lori Grimes.
“This really will be an experiment – it’s the antidote to the overly rehearsed, overly manicured glimpse into somebody’s perfect life – it will be full of heart, messy conversation, hardworking humans who are on the frontlines, and guests who might reveal some previously unknown talents,” said AMC Networks president Sarah Barnett. “Ultimately, it’s a shot at some raw and real entertainment that will uplift and connect with our audiences.”
Friday Night In With the Morgans premieres this Friday, April 17, at 10 p.m. on AMC.
