AMC ANNOUNCES TWO-NIGHT PREMIERE TELEVISION EVENT TO LAUNCH NEW DRAMA SERIES “BETTER CALL SAUL”

Series to Debut Sunday, February 8 at 10:00 PM ET/PT With Second Episode to Air Monday, February 9 at 10:00 PM ET/PT

Created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, Executive Produced by Gran Via’s Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein and Produced by Sony Pictures Television

New York – November 20, 2014 – AMC announced today a two-night television event for the premiere of its next new drama series “Better Call Saul.” The prequel to the award-winning series “Breaking Bad,” “Saul” will debut on Sunday, February 8 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT with its second episode airing the next day, Monday, February 9 at 10:00 p.m. The series will then continue to air Mondays at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on AMC. From “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan and “Breaking Bad” writer Peter Gould, “Better Call Saul” focuses on the evolution of the popular “Breaking Bad” character Saul Goodman, portrayed by Bob Odenkirk, before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer. The series is executive produced by Gilligan, Gould, Mark Johnson (“Breaking Bad,” Diner, Rain Man) and Melissa Bernstein (“Breaking Bad,” “Rectify,” “Halt and Catch Fire”) with “Breaking Bad” alums Thomas Schnauz and Stewart A. Lyons as co-executive producers for Sony Pictures Television.

“This February, during AMC’s first ever two-night series premiere event, we’re going to introduce Jimmy McGill to the world. Known to ‘Breaking Bad’ fans as Saul Goodman, viewers will soon discover Saul wasn’t always Albuquerque’s top criminal (criminal) lawyer,” said AMC President Charlie Collier. “Huge thanks to Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould, Bob Odenkirk, our partners at Sony, and the entire team. We’re thrilled to be cooking together again.”

Joining Odenkirk are series regulars Jonathan Banks (“Breaking Bad,” Wiseguy) as Mike Erhmantraut, Michael McKean (This is Spinal Tap) as Chuck McGill, Rhea Seehorn (“Franklin & Bash,” “House of Lies”) as Kim Wexler, Patrick Fabian (“Big Love,” “Grey’s Anatomy”) as Howard Hamlin and Michael Mando (“Orphan Black,” “The Killing”) as Nacho Varga – characters that will represent both legitimate and illegitimate sides of the law.

“Better Call Saul” is set six years before Saul Goodman meets Walter White. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny and hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside and often against Jimmy is “fixer” Mike Erhmantraut, a beloved character first introduced in “Breaking Bad.” The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into a man who puts the criminal in “criminal lawyer.”

As previously announced, season one of “Better Call Saul” will consist of 10 episodes; the series has already been greenlit for a second season of 13 episodes.
