AMC Reveals The Story Behind The Breaking Bad Spin-Off, Better Call Saul

BETTER-CALL-SAUL_612x380On Friday, AMC revealed some of the basic plot behind the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul. The new show will have Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks reprising their roles as Saul Goodman and Mike Ehrmantraut. New characters in the series will be Michael McKean as Chuck, Rhea Seehorn as Kim, Patrick Fabian as Hamlin and Michael Mando as Nacho.

The series is set six years before Saul Goodman meets Walter White. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is "fixer" Mike Ehrmantraut, a beloved character introduced in 'Breaking Bad.' The series will track Jimmy's transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts "criminal" in "Criminal lawyer." The series' tone is dramatic, wove with dark humor.

Better Call Saul will premier in early 2015.
