You Better Call Saul: Breaking Bad Spin-Off is a Go!

Sony und AMC haben sich auf ein Breaking Bad-Spinoff um Saul geeinigt: ‘Breaking Bad’ Saul Goodman Spinoff A Go At AMC, Will Serve As Prequel To Original. Das Ganze soll zwar eher eine Comedy-Serie werden und weit weniger düster, als BrBa, aber wurscht weil FUCK YEAH! (Und: Ich halte es für einen Spoiler, dass die Serie in der Meldung bereits als Prequel angekündigt wird, aber Spoiler sind mir ebenfalls eher wurscht.)

Breaking Bad‘s Saul Goodman will live on at AMC. After lengthy negotiations, the cable network and Breaking Bad producer Sony Pictures TV have reached a licensing agreement for a spinoff from Vince Gilligan‘s acclaimed drama series. The spinoff series, tentatively titled Better Call Saul, had been in the works for months. It centers on one of Breaking Bad‘s most recognizable supporting characters, Bob Odenkirk‘s unflappable criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. […] the spinoff will be a one-hour prequel that will focus on the evolution of the Goodman character before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer, AMC said. The network wouldn’t elaborate on the project’s status, but I’ve learned Better Call Saul has a series order pending the complication of Sony TV’s deals with Gilligan, Gould and Odenkirk.[…]

Saul has served as Breaking Bad‘s comic relief, which is not surprising given Odenkirk’s strong comedy background. While hourlong, the spinoff is expected to be be far less dark than the original series, with more comedy infused into it.
