In a new feature interview with “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul” creator Vince Gilligan, the celebrated writer/producer revealed to Variety some new details about his next series – a slightly sci-fi series starring his ‘Saul’ actress Rhea Seehorn.
The still-untitled show will be set and filmed in Albuquerque, New Mexico, but Gilligan says Rhea will be playing a “very different character” than the Kim Wexler role she played on ‘Saul’. He adds: “It’s a whole different world. There’s no overlap that I can see.”
As for the show itself, he says: “I wouldn’t call this heavy science fiction, I would call it mild science fiction… There’s no crime, and no methamphetamine. It’s going to be fun and different.”
Describing it, it sounds like a high-concept tale that begins in our regular world until a major event changes things:
“The world changes very abruptly in the first episode, and then it is quite different. It’s the modern world 0 the world we live in – but it changes very abruptly. And the consequences that that reaps hopefully provide drama for many, many episodes after that.”
Apple TV+ has already handed Gilligan a two-season order for the series. Gilligan will serve as creator and showrunner and tells the outlet his team is officially back in the writer’s room on Monday. In terms of how it’s progressing he says:
“When the strike hit, we were very close to the ending of breaking the first season. So we’re going to go back and finish the second-to-last episode and then get to work on the last episode.
We’re looking forward to getting back to work. We would have been shooting already if it weren’t for the strike. The strike was a sad necessity, and we’re all glad that it’s behind us.
As for a potential return to the “Breaking Bad” world, he doesn’t rule it out but says: “I don’t want to beat a dead horse… I’d hate to see that happen with this. I’d rather err on the side of leaving the party too soon than too late.”
