AMC's new series, "Rubicon"

There’s a new series on AMC that’s been getting a lot of buzz. It’s called “Rubicon,” and its debut earlier this month garnered the highest ratings of any premier in the network’s history, beating “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad. "Rubicon" focuses on the secretive operations of the fictional American Policy Institute in post-9/11 lower Manhattan. It stars James Badge Dale as Will Travers, a code-cracker who can unravel any puzzle, but can’t come to peace with tragedies in his life.

Henry Bromell is the executive producer of “Rubicon,” as well as a former writer and producer on such highly acclaimed shows as “Northern Exposure,” “I’ll Fly Away,” “Homicide: Life on the Street,” and “Chicago Hope.”

He talks with us about "Rubicon", and how his family's strange past makes him a good fit for the show.
