'Breaking Bad' producer to create new series
Sam Catlin has signed a two-year overall deal with Sony Pictures Television.
The “Breaking Bad” co-exec producer will be tapped to create original series for the studio and may continue with the AMC series as well. The future of “Bad” beyond its fourth season is currently up in the air as AMC and Sony negotiate over future seasons. Sony will also have the option of shopping “Bad” to other networks should AMC pass.
Catlin was an executive story editor on Fox series “Canterbury’s Law” and story editor on NBC series “Kidnapped.” He has previously developed pilots for both FX and the WB. Catlin also wrote the screenplay for indie film “The Great New Wonderful.”
Catlin is repped by UTA and attorney Ken Richman.
