Apple TV has placed a two-season order for Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul creator Vince Gilligan’s new show, starring Better Call Saul star Rhea Seehorn.
according to deadline (opens in a new tab)the untitled project is described as a “grounded, blended genre drama” that is “set in our world by giving it a twist, focusing on people, and exploring the human condition in an unexpected and surprising way” with the post previously comparing it to The twilight zone.
“After fifteen years, I thought it was time to take a break from writing antiheroes…and who is more heroic than the brilliant Rhea Seehorn? It’s about time she had her own show of her own, and I feel lucky to be able to work on it with her,” Gilligan said of the announcement. “And what a nice symmetry to meet with Zack Van Amburg, Jamie Erlicht and Chris Parnell! Jamie and Zack were the first two people to say yes to Breaking Bad all those years ago. They have made a great team at Apple, and my wonderful long-time partners at Sony Pictures Television and I are excited to be in business with them.”
The new series is reportedly a big departure from the world of Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad, moving away from drugs, crime, and Albuquerque, New Mexico. Rhea Seehorn, who played Kim Wexler for six consecutive seasons, earned a 2022 Emmy nomination for her performance in the show’s final season.
