We previously reported that a spinoff of Breaking Bad was being considered and would star Bob Odenkirk as his lawyer character, Saul Goodman. Hollywood Reporter has confirmed today that the show is a go. It was also announced that the new series has the working title of Better Call Saul.
After several weeks of negotiations, the basic cable network has inked a licensing agreement with Sony for the series’ next iteration. “As conceived, the new series is based on the show’s popular Saul Goodman character with the working title Better Call Saul,” the studio and network confirmed in a joint statement, adding: “plans call for Saul to be a one-hour prequel that will focus on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman character [played by Bob Odenkirk] before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer.”
