Vince Gilligan is preparing a new series; ‘Better Call Saul’ Tracking – Deadline


EXCLUSIVE: As You better call Saul coming to an end, co-creator of the series — and breaking Bad creator – Vince Gilligan is ready for what’s next. And again, for his next dramatic project, he goes with a completely original idea. No one would comment, but there’s a lot of anticipation in the market for the pitch, which should be out in the coming weeks, with at least 8-9 networks and platforms lining up to hear it.

I hear the new project, which comes from Sony Pictures TV where Gilligan has been under global contract for a long time, is a departure from the world of drugs and crime he explored in breaking Bad and its prequel, You better call Saulwhose series finale will air on August 15. The news is that the new show is reminiscent of Gilligan’s tenure on X files. But don’t expect sci-fi drama – when he was a writer-producer on X filesGilligan was known for focusing more on the human condition in his episodes, which he would also do in his new series, exploring similar themes of reality bending while holding up a mirror to humanity.

Described as a mixed and grounded genre drama, the new series is also being compared to The twilight zone. It is said to take place in our world while changing it, focusing on people, and exploring the human condition in unexpected and surprising ways.

Thought-provoking but not a morality tale, the new show is expected to carry Gilligan’s signature tone that infuses the drama with humor.

As he often does with his original designs, Gilligan wrote material that accompanies the pitch, giving buyers an idea of ​​what the new project would look like. I hear that it is envisaged to play for a few seasons with an excessive narrative arc.

One of the most celebrated television creators of his generation, Gilligan created and produced AMC’s acclaimed series breaking Bad, which won two Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series. He is co-creator/executive producer, alongside Peter Gould, of breaking Bad prequel You better call Saul, which has also been an awards juggernaut, garnering 46 Emmy nominations to date, including seven this year, including Outstanding Drama Series. Gilligan also earned multiple Emmy nominations for his work on The X files. He is replaced by CAA, Stories Media Group and Del Shaw Moonves Tanaka.
