AMC says it is using the social media site Tumblr to premiere its new series about the early days of personal computing. “Halt and Catch Fire,” began as a sneak preview 5/19 on Tumblr. It will air the first time on AMC on 6/1. The series is set in the early 1980s and follows three people who team up to try and build a computer that will change the future. In recent weeks, AMC has been holding screenings of the new show at technology companies, including Apple, Twitter, Google, DropBox and, on Monday, Tumblr, noted an AP story.
The series will run for 10 weeks.
