Television Sony Pictures produce the program, as they did with “breaking bad” and “Better call Saul.” Not surprising, as Gilligan has an overall deal with Sony at the moment. But the move to Apple TV+ reunites Gilligan with several former Sony executives now working for Apple. zack van amburg Y jamie erlichthe former co-chairmen of Sony Pictures Television, are now Apple’s heads of worldwide video. Chris Parnellanother former co-chairman of Sony TV, is now at Apple in a senior programming role.
Seehorn starred in “Better Call Saul” as Kim Wexler and earned an Emmy nomination this year for her performance in the show’s final season. Her other work includes “veep,” “franklin and bash,” Y “Whitney.” Meanwhile, “Saul” stars Bob Odenkirk Y Giancarlo Esposito Also landed new series recently. Odenkirk will star AMC‘s “Straight man”, while Esposito stars in “Parish”, another upcoming series from AMC.
“After fifteen years, I thought it was time to take a break from writing antiheroes…and who’s more heroic than the brilliant Rhea Seehorn?” Gilligan said in an announcement about the new series. “It’s about time she had her own show, and I feel lucky to be able to work on it with her. And what a nice symmetry to reunite 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.”
So while “Better Call Saul” and the “Breaking Bad” universe may be over for good, Gilligan and Seehorn will maintain their working relationship. One wonders what Gilligan has up his sleeve for television audiences. Last month, news broke that the upcoming show looks like Gilligan’s term as a writer on “the x files”, but keep an eye on that.
