The creative force behind AMC’s award-winning drama "Breaking Bad" has signed a new overall deal with Sony Pictures TV, reports Deadline.com.
Vince Gilligan’s contract is for 18 months, retroactive to November 2011. He has been working without a contract since his previous one expired.
The deal firms up plans for the show’s remaining run. The contract covers the final 16 episodes of "Breaking Bad," in which the saga of Walter White will come to a conclusion. They’ll be filmed in two batches of eight episodes each.
After he wraps up work on "Breaking Bad," Gilligan will tackle other projects under the Sony arrangement.
