Here is the brand new poster for the AMC’s much anticipated, 1980s computer drama “Halt and Catch Fire”. The anticipation comes from “Breaking Bad” producers Melissa Bernstein and Mark Johnson, but it’s also got a star-studded cast to boot.

The show stars Lee Pace (“Pushing Daisies” and  Marvel’s upcoming  “Guardians of the Galaxy”), Scoot McNairy (“Monsters”), Mackenzie Davis, Kerry Bishe and Toby Huss as early eighties computer geniuses who try to reverse-engineer the company, IBM. As you can see from the poster, IBM’s font has been cleverly integrated.

Apart from the slightly naff, “Hunger Games” style title, the show looks like it could be very promising. This is one to keep an eye on. “Halt and Catch Fire” will premiere on June 1st.
