President

Johnson promises the team will get extra creative with the way they shoot the sixth and final season of “Better Call Saul,” due in 2021, for an unfortunate reason: The pandemic has restricted their use of crowds and locations. A two-time Emmy winner for that series’ predecessor, “Breaking Bad,” and a best picture Oscar winner for 1988’s “Rain Man,” he began his career as a bit actor in the mid ’60s and went on produce “The Chronicles of Narnia” films and TV series such as “The Guardian” and “Halt and Catch Fire.” His upcoming slate includes the musical anthology series “National Anthem,” the first project in his new multi-year overall deal with AMC Studios, and the upcoming Warner Bros. crime thriller “The Little Things,” starring Denzel Washington and Rami Malek.
