AMC taps 'Breaking Bad' writers for 'Better Call Saul'

24 December 2013 1:45 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Saul Goodman will have some familiar faces backing him on his planned AMC series. Variety reports that "Breaking Bad" veterans Thomas Schnauz and Gennifer Hutchison have signed as a co-executive producer and supervising producer respectively of the spinoff. The prequel series, which stars Bob Odenkirk’s Saul before he met Walter White, was created by "Breaking Bad" mastermind Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould (the latter will serve as showrunner). The series doesn’t have a premiere date yet, but it’s expected to bow next year on AMC. Before then, Gould may even bring in a few other "Breaking Bad" alums to round »

Better Call Saul Hires Breaking Bad Writers

22 December 2013 7:38 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Between Better Call Saul's staffing decisions and potential cameos, it's almost like Breaking Bad never ended at all. Yeah, that's the ticket. It never ended at all. Variety reports that Breaking Bad's Thomas Schnauz and Gennifer Hutchison have joined the AMC prequel as co-executive producer and supervising producer respectively. Schnauz penned the Breaking Bad episode "Say My Name," while Hutchison wrote "Confessions." We're going to assume they're furiously working on an episode about that time Saul convinced a woman he was Kevin Costner as we speak. »

'Orange Is the New Black' and 'Breaking Bad' score in Writers Guild Awards nominations

5 December 2013 11:02 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Netflix's critical hit "Orange Is the New Black" picked up four nominations for the 2014 Writers Guild Awards -- where it's entered as a comedy series.

The show (and its cast) is entered in the drama field for some other upcoming awards shows, including the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards. It's a bit of a tweener show, mixing both comedy and drama, but as there are no "dramedy" awards anywhere, it's a comedy for writing purposes.

Other multiple nominees for the WGA Awards include "Breaking Bad," "Modern Family," "30 Rock," "Masters of Sex," "The Simpsons" and another Netflix series, "House of Cards."

The full list of series nominees is below. You can go here to see all the WGA TV and radio nominees, including those for news and children's programming. The awards are scheduled for Feb. 1.

2014 Writers Guild Nominees Announced. 'Orange Is The New Black' Makes The Cut. No 'Scandal' Though

5 December 2013 10:36 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The Writers Guild of America (WGA) has announced nominations for the 2014 Writers Guild Awards, which will take place on Saturday, February 1, 2014, at simultaneous ceremonies in Los Angeles and New York. Proving once again that the best-written shows (especially dramas) are on cable TV, here are your 2014 WGA nominees for television. Another year without a nomination for Scandal, which I'm sure the "Gladiators" won't be too pleased about. But, as I said, cable TV shows dominate in the dramatic categories. It's been that way for years now. And in terms of "black shows," or shows with significant black characters in prominent roles, Orange Is The New Black is nominated in 3 different categories. The full list of nominees below via press release: Drama Series  Breaking Bad, Written by Sam Catlin, Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould, Gennifer Hutchison, George Mastras, Thomas Schnauz, Moira Walley-Beckett; AMC The Good Wife, Written...

Inside the Breaking Bad writers' room: how Vince Gilligan runs the show

20 September 2013 4:10 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

As excitement mounts ahead of the finale of hit Us TV show Breaking Bad, Brett Martin sits in as showrunner Vince Gilligan and his writing team tease the much-acclaimed drama into life

It was an all-time record hot day in the San Fernando Valley. On West Burbank Boulevard, lined with offices and strip malls, the air shimmered; people took pictures of their cars' temperature displays: 110, 112, 116. In an anonymous building across from an AutoZone, the lobby directory showed the offices of a private eye, a dental supply company, a handful of financial companies, and, in suite 206, something blandly mysterious and vaguely sinister called Delphi Information Sciences Corporation. The plastic nameplate on the suite's door did little to illuminate the nature of what such a corporation might do. Certainly it offered no clue that behind the door, under the dropped ceilings, the fluorescent lights, and the hum of air-conditioning in this one-time data services office, »

'Breaking Bad' rejected storylines: Walt in South America, Badger the marksman

6 September 2013 12:48 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Just about every TV show has a list of story ideas that don't end up on screen. It's rare, though, that one of those ideas involves a recurring character shooting a flaming arrow from a crossbow.

That, however, is one of the things that never made it out of the writers' room on "Breaking Bad." As part of its cover story on the show, EW asked co-executive producer Peter Gould and writer/story editor Gennifer Hutchison to reveal some stories the show ultimately rejected. You can read the full list of 12 at EW.com, but here are a handful that stood out.

Badger and his crossbow: After the police impound Jesse's (Aaron Paul) car -- which contains evidence tying him to drug dealer Tuco -- he asks Badger (Matt Jones), who owns and is proficient with a crossbow, for help. Jesse and Walt (Bryan Cranston) make a flaming arrow that Badger shoots at Jesse's car, »

'Breaking Bad': The story lines you never got to see

By now, you’ve heard Breaking Bad’s famous what-if stories: Jesse (Aaron Paul) was going to die at the end of season 1! Tuco’s story (and life) ended earlier than planned because actor Raymond Cruz was contractually obligated to The Closer! The show was originally set in Riverside, California! But what are some other intriguing scenarios that didn’t made it out of the writers’ room? As the AMC crime drama heads toward its finale on Sept. 29, EW asked series creator Vince Gilligan, coexecutive producer Peter Gould and executive story editor Gennifer Hutchison to give up the goods on »

On 'Breaking Bad,' Walt Proves He May Not Always Be a Great Liar, But He's a Dedicated One

26 August 2013 7:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The article below contains spoilers for "Confessions," the August 25th, 2013 episode of "Breaking Bad." Broken and despairing, Jesse (Aaron Paul) has been drifting toward death in these past few episodes of "Breaking Bad," letting himself lean into various types of destruction as if wanting to see what will take. He's tried to give all his drug earnings away, first to Kaylee Ehrmantraut and the parents of the kid killed during the train heist, then to a street of strangers like some demented millionaire paperboy, an approach that attracted far more attention and got him picked up by the police. He's told Walt (Bryan Cranston), first indirectly and then to his face, that he knows he killed Mike. And in last night's episode "Confessions," written by Gennifer Hutchison and directed by the show's lead cinematographer Michael Slovis, he went to meet Walt in the desert, serenely aware it could end in his being buried out there, »

Breaking Bad, Ep. 5.11: “Confessions” leaves us in the lurch in the best way possible

26 August 2013 12:23 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Breaking Bad, Season 6, Episode 11: “Confessions”

Written by Gennifer Hutchison Directed by Michael Slovis Airs Sundays at 10pm Et on AMC

- Some series offer neat, tidy payoffs week-to-week, making sure to leave viewers satisfied while leaving them with enough plot and/or character movement to satisfy while leaving them eager for the next piece of the bigger picture. Not so with Breaking Bad; it’s impossible to imagine anyone getting to the final moments of “Confessions” and not cursing the television gods for not granting them immediate access to next week’s “Rabid Dog.” This right here is some next-level viewer-directed cruelty of the most effective sort.

And yet it all begins innocently enough. In an unusually casual cold open, Todd, his uncle, and an associate (played by Justified veteran Kevin Rankin) swing by a diner to discuss Todd’s (reflected) past drug-smuggling glories, before some blood is »
