Breaking Bad: Saul’s Origin Story (2018)

Great Television comes from great characters, and as proven by both Breaking Bad‘s Walter White and Better Call Saul‘s Saul Goodman (aka Slippin’ Jimmy), Vince Gilligan is nothing short of a genius when it comes to creating the unlikely hero. Coupled with an acute sense of tone and timing, it’s no wonder that the rise and demise of these characters lend themselves to some of television’s greatest success. In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of Breaking Bad and the highly anticipated season four premiere of Better Call Saul, TV Camp revisits the episode that sparked the spin-off prequel – Breaking Bad season two’s “Better Call Saul” – followed by a conversation with executive producer Vince Gilligan and star Bob Odenkirk as they discuss collaboration, character inception, and their creative journey across the two series.

Panelists: Vince Gilligan & Bob Odenkirk

Moderator: Sarah Rodman (Entertainment Weekly)
Season 8 | June 6-9, 2019 | Austin, TX
