Sony Pictures Television produce the show, as they did with “breaking bad” and “Better call Saul”. No surprise there, as Gilligan has an overall deal with Sony at this point. But the move to Apple TV+ reunites Gilligan with several former Sony executives who now work for Apple. Zack Van Amburgh and Jamie Erlichformer co-presidents of Sony Pictures Television, are now Apple’s heads of worldwide video. Chris Parnellanother former Sony TV co-president, is now at Apple in a senior programming position.
Seehorn starred in “Better Call Saul” as Kim Wexler and earned an Emmy nomination this year for her performance in the show’s final season. Her other works include “Veep,” “Franklin and Bash,” and “Whitney.” Meanwhile, “Saul” plays Bob Odenkirk and Giancarlo Esposito also recently landed a new series. Odenkirk will star I HAVE Chis “Fair man“, while Esposito stars in “Parish,” another upcoming AMC series.
“After fifteen years, I thought it was time to take a break from writing anti-heroes…and who is more heroic than the brilliant Rhea Seehorn?” Gilligan said in an announcement about the new series. “It’s been a long time since she had her own show and I feel lucky to be working on it with her. And what a beautiful symmetry to be reunited with Zack Van Amburg, Jamie Erlicht and Chris Parnell! Jamie and Zack were the first two people to say yes to “Breaking Bad” all those years ago. They’ve built a great team at Apple, and my wonderful long-time partners at Sony Pictures Television and I are thrilled to be working with them.”
So while the “Better Call Saul” and “Breaking Bad” universes may be ending for good, Gilligan and Seehorn will continue their working relationship. We wonder what else Gilligan has up his sleeve for TV audiences. Last month, news broke that the upcoming show resembles Gilligan’s term as a writer on “The X-Files,” but be careful about it.
