Writer / Director / Producer

Just as Walter White couldn’t give up on his “blue sky” meth, Gilligan can’t stop cooking up “Breaking Bad.” Season five of its Emmy darling spin-off prequel “Better Call Saul” is set for 2020, and he gave fans a new dose of the series this fall as writer-director of Netflix/AMC’s television movie “El Camino,” which picks up where the “Bad” finale left White’s partner in crime Jesse (Aaron Paul). Gilligan started out scripting the features “Wilder Napalm” (1993) and “Home Fries” (1998), the latter penned as an NYU film student, and went on to do six years as a writer-producer on “The X-Files.” In 2015, CBS picked up his cop series “Battle Creek,” with David Shore as showrunner, from a pilot Gilligan wrote years prior.
