Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul creator reportedly has next new show lined up
It sounds like it will be very different to the two recent crime epics.
As we approach the end of the run of Better Call Saul, it is fair to say that Vince Gilligan has given the world two of the very best TV shows of all time, having co-created that show, and also Breaking Bad.
All eyes are on what he's going to do next, and according to Deadline, he's already shopping around his next show, which sounds like it will be bringing him back to his TV roots.
The report describes it as "a blended, grounded genre drama, the new series also is being compared to The Twilight Zone. It is said to be set in our world while putting a tweak on it, focusing on people and exploring the human condition in an unexpected, surprising way".
Before creating the two crime epics, Gilligan got his start writing in TV for The X-Files, having written 30 episodes for that show, including the 1998 episode 'Drive', which starred none other than Bryan Cranston.
Deadline reports that Gilligan will be presenting his new show in the coming weeks, with at least eight or nine networks and streaming platforms lined up to hear his pitch.
Gilligan also directed episodes of The X-Files, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, as well as the Breaking Bad movie, El Camino, which arrived as a Netflix original in 2019.
