tv Breaking Bad Saul Spinoff Moving "Full Speed Ahead"

The latest reports comes from Gilligan himself, courtesy of The Wrap, who says ?It?s not a done deal yet, but it?s definitely something we?re full speed ahead on trying to get going.? Gilligan reiterated that the proposed spinoff vehicle being developed between he and executive producer/character creator Peter Gould remains his only current post-?Breaking Bad? project, one they?ve actively continued to plot out.

As for what form a Saul-centric spin-off would take, Gilligan explained that they had yet to decide exactly where on the scale between tragedy and comedy the character?s solo adventures would land, or if it would be best suited for an hour or half-hour format.

There?s a way to do both versions of the show. There?s a way to make it a half-hour show and make it a little more ? I don?t want to say sitcom-y, but a little more traditionally half-hour comedic. Or there?s a way to do it where it fits more snuggly in with the ?Breaking Bad? universe, in which it?s an hour-long show.

As you can imagine with Saul Goodman as a character, a show like that would have to have plenty of humor to it. But also because he works for some pretty scary clientele sometimes, there?d be a bit of drama in it as well. We?re trying to nail that down. As of yet, we haven?t completely figured that out ourselves.

I know what you mean.

 

Saul is a fantastic character, certainly, however I'm not sure there's sufficient depth to create a whole series around him.

As of right now, it doesn't look like something I would watch. Can't imagine how much comedic value Saul and his clientele can provide.

Agreed. I'd love to be proven wrong but... BB was/is about ALL the characters. I don't think I could get into a show about any one of them alone..

I don't know if this can make it past Season 1, or the first episode.

I can't see this going anywhere but, I'll give it one chance, it deserves one chance.

I don't think I do. I've always loved Saul but spinoffs are rarely anything but disastrous.

 

Frasier is the only non-awful one I can think of off the top of my head.

The Jeffersons, Empty Nest (or Golden Girls, not sure which one spawned which) and Mama's Family.  There's been several good spinoffs :)
