Vince Gilligan, the creator of Breaking Bad, has signed up to create his new Apple TV Plus program, with Rhea Seehorn as the main role.

Gilligan''s next series has been widely shopped around, with at least eight to nine networks and streaming platforms (including Amazon and AMC) making an offer. Apple has secured a two-season series order for the show.

The untitled project, which saw Kim Wexler on Better Call Saul, will be spelled out, and it is being dubbed a mixed, grounded genre drama. It''s also not expected to tackle the world of drugs and crime as it was before.

Sony Pictures Television will play as the studio again, while Gilligan will serve as showrunner and executive producer. What looks to have given Apple the edge is Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht''s long-established friendship with Gilligan, both of whom assisted with the purchase of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.

After fifteen years, I assumed it was time to take a break from writing antiheroes, who is more heroic than the brilliant Rhea Seehorn? In a statement, Gilligan said.

Its long before she had her own show, and I feel happy to have reunited with her. Jamie Van Amburg, Jamie Erlicht, and Chris Parnell are all there to say yes to Breaking Bad all those years ago. They have established a great team at Apple, and my wonderful, long-time partners at Sony Pictures Television are thrilled to be in business.

I''m OVER THE MOON very pleased about this, but words cannot express. My heart is exploding! https://t.co/rnqGSO1AvUSeptember 22, 2022

Gilligan is one of the most well-known artists in the business, with Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul getting huge attention from critics and viewers. It''s a blow to Netflix, which has acquired the streaming rights to the latter, but has now lost out to Apple. It comes at a time when Netflix might lose some of its most popular shows in the United States Breaking Bad, which is arguably the most deadly victim.

An Apple TV Plus subscription is available for $4.99/4.99/ A$7.99 per month.

Following a slew of years of development, two new shows from J.J. Abrams were recently cancelled at HBO Max. Departured from the producers, the actors and their cast have given an update on the future.
