‘Breaking Bad’ spinoff ‘Better Call Saul’ producer spills more details
“Better Call Saul” producer Peter Gould (who also happened to create the Saul Goodman character) has a great interview in Yahoo TV, where he talks about putting together after his work on “Breaking Bad.” According to Gould, the spinoff isn’t going to be as broadly comedic as once intended:
“Frankly, I’ve been hanging around in courtrooms lately, and it’s not as broad as I thought originally. He dresses in a ridiculous way, he’s got billboards, he’s got ridiculous ads, but he is a shrewd customer. If you listen, most of his advice to Walt over the years in the show was really good advice. If Walt had listened to Saul a little bit more, I think the show would have gone very differently and probably would not have been as exciting.”
We’ve also already heard some other small details from Bob Odenkirk, who plays Saul, about how the show might be a prequel and sequel to “Breaking Bad,” and that there will be a few cameos of “Breaking Bad” characters on the show.
In his interview, Gould also added that what they’re creating is “pretty unique,” and “I don’t think it’s going to be exactly what people are expecting, let’s put it that way.” As this is coming from one of the guys who devised an episode where half of one of its characters’ faces gets blow off, we’re really excited to see what he means.
