"Breaking Bad" is coming to an end next year, but AMC's already looking for another narcotics-centric series to fill the twitchy, strung-out void.

According to Deadline, the network's developing "Grass Valley," a series focused on a pair of brothers involved in pot growing in Ukiah in California's Mendocino County, the first target for the DEA when they begin an attack on the state's medical marijuana industry.

Former "Sons of Anarchy" star Taylor Sheridan (who played Deputy Chief David Hale) has been brought on as a writer -- the actor also recently sold a not entirely dissimilar feature script, "Comancheria," for Peter Berg to possibly direct, about two brothers who plan a bank-robbing spree to save their family farm.

Hey, with "Weeds" also coming to an end after this current season, there's not even much competition in the scripted cannabis-industry show niche.

Back in May, AMC ordered pilots for two series -- the UK crime drama adaptation "Low Winter Son" and a Richard LaGravenese-scripted legal thriller.
