See Lee Pace in AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire Teaser

Here's the first teaser for AMC's Halt and Catch Fire, an '80s-set drama about the early days of personal computing in Texas's Silicon Prairie. Eyebrow heartthrob Lee Pace stars as a (fictional) former IBM executive who decides to reverse-engineer a PC by gathering a ragtag team of rebels, including Scoot McNairy as a washed-up engineer and Mackenzie Davis as a punky prodigy. A meager 30 seconds isn't much to go on, but between this and The Americans, it's looking like '80s sweaters are truly here to stay.
