Gilligan

Gilligan is reaching the end of a life-changing and arguably industry-shifting odyssey that began with awards magnet “Breaking Bad” in 2008 and will conclude in 2021 with the sixth and final season of the stellar prequel series “Better Call Saul.” Along the way, he created an Emmy-winning cartoon spinoff (“Better Call Saul: Los Pollos Hermanos Employee Training”) and wrote and directed the 2019 “Breaking Bad” Netflix TV movie sequel “El Camino.” Gilligan began his career scripting the features “Wilder Napalm” (1993) and “Home Fries” (1998), the latter penned when he was a New York University film student, then spent 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 had written years earlier.
