AMC considering Breaking Bad spin-off
Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould are reported to be working on a potential spin-off series for Breaking Bad's sleazy lawyer, Saul Goodman...
It's very early days on this one, but of enough interest to discuss even at this zygotic phase. It's being reported that Breaking Bad's Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould are collaborating on a potential spin-off series to keep them busy after this year's season finale. The angle? A closer look at comic-relief, slippery lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk).
Speaking very much in the hypothetical last July, Gilligan told reporters, "I like the idea of a lawyer show in which the main lawyer will do anything it takes to stay out of a court of law. He’ll settle on the courthouse steps, whatever it takes to stay out of the courtroom. That would be fun". AMC seems to agree with him, as the network is reported to be mulling over a potential spin-off with a comedic bent.
Many, of course, are still holding out hope for a Breaking Bad movie to continue the franchise after the show's final sign-off later this year, something that hasn't been definitively ruled out by the powers that be. Whether it's a movie, spin-off, or official set of commemorative plates..., we're going to need something to fill the Walter White-shaped hole in the TV schedules, and soon. Could a Saul Goodman vehicle be the answer?
