'Breaking Bad' Creator Working on Spinoff Yahoo
"Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan told Yahoo TV that a spinoff of the cult AMC show is "very much" a possibility. The spinoff would star Bob Odenkirk's character, the fast-talking attorney Saul Goodman.
"I mean, nothing [is] signed on the dotted line. Nothing's written in stone, but we are working away on it. My writer and producer, Peter Gould, who created the character of Saul way back in Season 2, he and I have been talking, trying to figure out what a Saul Goodman show would look like. What would be the details of it, the particulars of it? And we're getting together to hash that out every chance we get," Gilligan said.
He noted that they're trying to figure out whether the show should be a prequel or a sequel.
"But any story that at some point or another showed Saul at his peak, his abilities and his networking skills, would, I think, show the criminal underbelly of a fictional Albuquerque that really had Saul Goodman wired into pretty much the heart of it," he said.
The finale of "Breaking Bad" will air Aug. 11.
