Breaking Bad Spin-Off Series On Its Way

You love Saul Goodman right? Well he's getting his own spin-off! "Better Call Saul" will be a prequel to Breaking Bad, so no Walter White for you I'm afraid. It'll explore how Saul got to the point in his life where he was comfortable being the legal counsel to a murderous and slightly insane drugs baron. 

Despite that, it won't be as dark as the parent series apparently. Comedian and writer Bob Odenkirk will obviously reprise his role as Saul, and Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan will no doubt be around to Exec Product. The bulk of the writing work will go to Peter Gould, who invented the character of Saul.

The series hasn't bee commissioned outright as yet, but is currently in negotiation between Sony Pictures and AMC. Deals still need to be made and papers signed, but once that's out the way it be daft not to at least order a few episodes to see how this one floats.
