Better Call Saul
“Breaking Bad” show runner Vince Gilligan says the Saul Goodman-led spin-off series is getting closer to reality:

“it’s not a done deal yet, but it’s definitely something we’re full speed ahead on trying to get going. We are plugging away coming up with a pitch and a take on it for the network and studio, and hopefully everyone will agree that there’s a really fun show to be had here.” [Source: Radio Times]

The third season premiere of cop drama “Luther” premiered on UK’s BBC One on Tuesday night, nabbing 5 million viewers and a 21.7% share.

That marks the lowest season premiere in the show’s history, 600,000 viewers off from the last episode which aired in 2011. [Source: Deadline]
