"Breaking Bad" Spin-Off "Saul" Is A Go

By Garth Franklin Wednesday September 11th 2013 03:27PM

Lengthy negotiations are over with AMC and Sony Pictures reaching a licensing agreement for the "Breaking Bad" spinoff series tentatively titled "Better Call Saul".

Bob Odenkirk's memorable and unflappable criminal lawyer Saul Goodman heads up the series which will serve as a prequel and focus on the evolution of the Goodman character before he ever met Walter White. The tone will therefore be much lighter and more comedic than 'Bad'.

'Bad' creator Vince Gilligan and writer-producer Peter Gould conceived the hourlong series which is expected to get a formal series order once deals are worked out with the pair and Odenkirk.
