10 Other Breaking Bad Characters Who Should Get A Spin-Off

16 October 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

AMC

If you’ve got a problem – and no one else can help – and if you can find him, maybe you should call… Saul Goodman.

Breaking Bad fans, don’t despair – no need to allow your grief over the show’s departure to send you down the dark tunnel of meth addiction or scurrying for the nearest jewellers to steal baby tiaras. If you’re even vaguely familiar with Vince Gilligan’s masterpiece, we don’t need to spell out the fact that it ain’t coming back, but Walter Whitites can rejoice nonetheless in the arrival of Better Call Saul in February.

As for finding Saul, unlike the elusive A-Team, that shouldn’t be a problem for any legally challenged residents of Albuquerque. If you own a television set, you’ll have seen his gaudy, lowest-common-denominator commercials, complete with cheesy graphics and hot cops. If you’ve ever waited for a bus, »

Mipcom: Sony Pictures Television Chief Steve Mosko Talks ‘Better Call Saul,’ ‘Powers’

13 October 2014 6:18 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cannes — Steve Mosko, president of Sony Pictures Television, told delegates at TV market Mipcom Monday that “Breaking Bad” spinoff “Better Call Saul” would prompt fans of the original show to rewatch past episodes of “Breaking Bad.”

“For all the ‘Breaking Bad’ fans there will be a lot of twists and turns. I won’t spill the beans too much, but it is going to force you to go back and check out things that happened in ‘Breaking Bad’ to make sure you were clear about what you saw back then,” said Mosko, who recently visited the “Better Call Saul” set.

Better Call Saul,” whose creative team includes “Breaking Bad” creator and showrunner Vince Gilligan, will air at the beginning of next year.

Mosko also showed a new trailer from “Powers,” a drama series produced for the PlayStation Network about a superhero who has lost his powers. Mosko said the show »

Meet Europe's 5 Most Powerful Showrunners

11 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in the Oct. 17 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Officially, the European showrunner doesn't exist. Until a few years ago, even the most ambitious continental small-screen creatives would, at most, designate themselves as "head writers." But as co-productions abound and talent crisscrosses the Atlantic, something akin to a U.S.-style showrunner is beginning to emerge. Few so far enjoy the status — or salaries — of such U.S. showrunners as True Detective's Nic Pizzolatto, Orange Is the New Black's Jenji Kohan or Breaking Bad's Vince Gilligan, but Europe's showrunners are getting

Better Call Saul's Funky Music Video Promo - "The Song"

7 October 2014 7:39 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

AMC has released a strange and amusing new promo spot for their Breaking Bad spin-off series Better Call Saul, which fans seem to be very excited about seeing. I thought this spot was great because it's in the form of an upbeat and catchy original country western song with lyrics written by series creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould. It was performed wonderfully by Junior Brown. It's extremely entertaining, and fans are going to love it. The video also includes footage from the series. 

The series is set six years before Saul Goodman meets Walter White. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is “fixer” Mike Ehrmantraut, a beloved character introduced in ‘Breaking Bad.’ The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, »

Breaking Bad Composer to Score Better Call Saul

6 October 2014 9:42 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Better Call Saul is getting more Breaking Bad–like by the day: First we got Mike Ehrmantraut, then we got Vince Gilligan, and now we have learned that Breaking Bad composer Dave Porter (who co-wrote the Junior Brown song that dropped yesterday) will be scoring the spinoff. Porter scored all 62 episodes of BrBa and wrote the theme song. "Dave Porter is an irreplaceable member of the Breaking Bad family, and we're thrilled to have him aboard Better Call Saul," says Gilligan. "He gets right to the heart of every scene, writing a score that resonates perfectly with the story. I can't imagine doing our new show without him.” Now we just need those rumored Walt and Jesse cameos to come to fruition and it will be like we never left. »

Better Call Saul Music Video Hints At What’s In Store For The Breaking Bad Spinoff

6 October 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

AMC are amping up their return to the Breaking Bad Universe. This weekend’s marathon of Walter White’s exploits came to a head last night, with the inclusion of a new music video trailer for Better Call Saul.

The spinoff isn’t set to air until February 2015, and will focus on the story of fan-favourite lawyer, Saul Goodman. The character, who appeared in Breaking Bad, was established as a somewhat shady attorney of ill-repute. His tactics for helping his clients often bordered on incredibly sketchy, but that won’t exactly factor into his new show.

Set in 2002, Better Call Saul will take a trip back to before Saul had sunken into the depths of depravity, and was known by his real name, Jimmy McGill. Breaking creator Vince Gilligan is back onboard as showrunner along with Peter Gould, which indicates we’re in for more top-quality entertainment this coming Winter. »

'Better Call Saul' Song Debuts in 'Breaking Bad' Spinoff Video

6 October 2014 8:13 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

"If you drink one drink, drink two, drink three Long Island ice teas. But your buddy's worse off and he throws you his car keys!" AMC has just unveiled the official song for Better Call Saul, the highly-anticipated Breaking Bad spinoff series that follows lawyer Saul Goodman before and after his fateful meeting with meth kingpin Walter White.

This catchy tune comes courtesy of Junior Brown, who rattles off a number of reasons why you Better Call Saul in what serves as both a music video and the catchy jingle for a commercial might see playing on TV late at night. The tune brings just the right amount of sleaze and charm to what promises to be one of next year's most exciting TV dramas.

Bob Odenkirk will reprise his role as the infamous Albuquerque-based lawyer in the series premiere, set six years before Saul Goodman's entire life is upended. »

Better Call Saul isn't out yet, but it has its own music video already. AMC released the music video during its Breaking Bad binge on Sunday night. Performed by Junior Brown, the show's creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould wrote the lyrics that include drinking too many Long Island iced teas, shop-lifting from Walmart and disappearing husbands. "Saul, Saul, you better call Saul. He'll fight for your rights when your backs to the wall. Stick it to the man, justice for all. You heard me, you better call Saul."

Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul gets its own theme song

Breaking Bad's spinoff show featuring snarky lawyer Saul Goodman has apparently impressed the higher ups at AMC so much that a second season was ordered before the first even hit. As odd a premise as it might seem, it looks like creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould are having a lot of fun with the possibilies, as evidenced by this theme song performed by country musician Junior Brown.

This 'Better Call Saul' Music Video Is Criminally Catchy (Video)

6 October 2014 3:33 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

One of the more hotly anticipated new series debuting in 2015 is "Better Call Saul," the spin-off/prequel to the critically beloved and audience adored "Breaking Bad." Charting the unsteady rise of slippery criminal attorney Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), the series was co-created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, who, for some reason, decided to also write a song-length jingle for the series. The results are below... and incredibly catchy.

"The Song," performed by Junior Brown and featuring some amazing "Better Call Saul" iconography from the "Breaking Bad" series (including the spinning sign and flailing balloon man), also is interspersed with some new footage from the forthcoming series (debuting in February 2015).

Just watch it. And good luck trying to get it out of your head. »

Better Call Saul Music Video Provides Glimpses of the Upcoming Breaking Bad Spinoff Series

5 October 2014 9:34 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I have very mixed feelings about Better Call Saul.  On the one hand, I feel that Breaking Bad is just about perfect, and it's best to leave well enough alone.  Respect the chemistry.  On the other hand, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is co-showrunning with Peter Gould, and Gilligan has earned the benefit of the doubt.  Also, there's certainly new places you can take a comic-relief character like Saul (Bob Odenkirk), although I'm wondering how this "fall from grace" story will differ from Walter White's.  Sure, the Saul we saw in Breaking Bad didn't commit atrocities on Walter's level, but the Saul we'll be seeing in Better Call Saul won't even be "Saul Goodman" when the story begins in 2002.  He'll be James McGill, a fine, upstanding lawyer. As we wait to see how the new series will play out, AMC has released a Better Call Saul music video containing new footage, »
