From AMC Studios, "Halt and Catch Fire" captures the rise of the PC era in the early 1980s, during which a renegade trio - a visionary, an engineer and a prodigy - risk it all to realize their vision of building a computer that could change the future. The series charts the changing culture of Texas' Silicon Prairie while tensions build within the group as they attempt to truly innovate. They navigate the thin line between genius and delusion, as their drive to do something that might truly matter runs up against innumerable obstacles.

The 10-episode series is created by Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers and executive produced by showrunner Jonathan Lisco ("Southland"), Gran Via Productions' Mark Johnson ("Breaking Bad," "Rectify," Diner, Rain Man) and Melissa Bernstein ("Breaking Bad," "Rectify").
