Vince Gilligan Is
Already Planning
His Next Big Series
After more than a decade on the air, Vince Gilligan's "Better Call Saul" and "Breaking Bad" universe is finally coming to a close. With over a decade of his career spent on these interconnected projects, intrigue has been brewing in the industry about what Gilligan might turn his attention to next.
The celebrated creator of "Breaking Bad" is embarking on a project that is said to explore the human condition and has people comparing it to "The Twilight Zone." The series is expected to be pitched in the coming weeks, and with Gilligan's track record of success, the market is hungry to nab the showrunner's next idea.
Eight or nine buyers are already in line to hear the pitch, and viewers should expect a more grounded show that is set in a slightly askew version of the real world and with a story arc set for multiple seasons. Gilligan reportedly has material pre-written to accompany his pitch that combines thought-provoking drama and humor.
