Vince Gilligan, the 55-year-old American writer, producer and director, best-known for his AMC epic “Breaking Bad” alongside its spin-off series “Better Call Saul,” has been mulling a series at Apple which will star “Better Call Saul” alum Rhea Seehorn.
Nonetheless, the storyline and plot of the series are yet to be unenveloped. Latest announcement from Gilligan came forth just a month after the much-famed producer and director came into spotlight again following a remark where he was quoted saying "they should give us a Novel for 'Better Call Saul'"
Gilligan to create Apple series starring Rhea Seehorn
As speculations were running high on what Gilligan would engender next after bringing in two tales to remember for a lifetime with Saul Goodman’s soothing yet persuasive play in “Better Call Saul” still coaxing a clutch of fans, Gilligan said in a statement on Thursday, “After fifteen years, I figured it was time to take a break from writing antiheroes… and who’s more heroic than the brilliant Rhea Seehorn? It’s long past time she had her own show, and I feel lucky to get to work on it with her.
And what nice symmetry to be reunited 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’ve built 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”.
Nevertheless, Gilligan’s new Apple series had already received orders for two straight seasons, while the 55-year-old director and screenplay writer would serve as the executive producer and showrunner. Aside from that, Gilligan’s production house High Bridge Productions will produce the series, while Sony, the studio behind “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul” would producer the series starring Rhea Seehorn.
