Gilligan

Writer / Director / Producer

One of the most respected TV series of all time, Gilligan’s “Breaking Bad” took an improbable premise — a dying science teacher turns drug kingpin — and made it entirely believable. Awards, accolades and viewers followed, as the series slowly but consistently grew into a hit for cable outlet AMC. The “Breaking Bad” prequel, AMC’s “Better Call Saul,” created with Peter Gould, continues Gilligan’s storytelling in the same universe, deepening crossover characters as it introduces new, remarkably fully formed characters. Currently in its fourth season, “Better Call Saul” has begun to overlap more with “Breaking Bad” while still earning wide critical acclaim for its original take on the universe Gilligan — who began his TV career as a writer on “The X-Files” — established.
