IGN has a killer interview with the man who would be Saul Goodman; in it Bob Odenkirk talks his method and his vision for handling the fast approaching revival of Breaking Bad’s savvy, silly, and sometimes sinister criminal lawyer.

Word on the street in the Q is that whether standing-in for Nebraska or any place else, New Mexico will again be the backdrop and location of the upcoming spin-off series.

Speaking of Breaking Bad in the streets, OHI Reader R.W. writes:

“We want ed to come visit Albuquerque in December for our vacation and visit some of the BB sites. Is there anybody we can contact about this?”

Boy, is there ever! Here are some resources to check out before your visit:

In the meantime, here’s our friend Trixie ConQueso, NM performer extraordinaire – who just so happens to be tailor made to play busty blonde sidekick to Odenkirk’s Saul like no other could – with her rendition of what could be a helluva sexy theme song for the yet to be titled Saul Goodman show!

1/2/2014: Vince Gilligan Talks ‘Breaking Bad’ Regret, Hints at Mike’s Return in ‘Better Call Saul’ – SlashFilm

Better Call Saul Filming in Albuquerque

As we’ve been following for you here, here and here, the project set to bring to light just how Saul became Saul will make its home in Breaking Bad’s backyard, now according to show creator Vince Gilligan:

“Why not shoot Saul in the same way? Let’s shoot it in Albuquerque; let’s get as much of the crew back together as possible, and let’s do it the way we did it before so that it will be of a piece with that pre-existing fictional universe that we had so much fun creating.” -Gilligan to The Hollywood Reporter

Now that the gods have spoken, Albuquerque can officially look forwarded to playing host to one of its most beloved home sprung characters to date, now as a leading man. And no doubt we’ll get to see some old friends again.

Hallelujah!

But Saul will have to get in line as ANOTHER New Mexico television production has just been picked-up for additional episodes!

Will Saul Breaking Bad prequel film in New Mexico

Pre Walter White, pre billboards and bus benches, Saul Goodman was a wee McGill, and hopefully the television watching world is just dying to know how he came to be the guy who knows a guy, “who knows a guy…”

The many open ended backstory possibilities for everyone’s favorite criminal lawyer are set to be showcased in the new AMC show dubbed “Better Call Saul”. All summer long Bad fans had been watching and waiting for word from show creator Vince Gillagan and AMC Television for the verdict on the prospective spin-off.

That word came last month, as Baddies were bracing to say goodbye to the series that spawned the Peter Gould created character. Recent reports from the top point to a dark toned series replete with that twisted Saul Goodman humor and wit.

Many of us New Mexicans have been on the edge of our seat, waiting and wondering when the thumbs up, or down would finally pop-out, indicating whether or not the production would take root here where Breaking Bad called home.

At this time our magic eightball says – this! As our sources in the area hear production negotiations with Bad’s NM Studio are well underway!

Of course we could be wrong, our Star Wars reports have come under fire, but then again so did our Avengers and Lone Ranger suppositions…

What we do know for sure it that things are really hopping down at the largest studios in the city. Before you know it everyone from A to N BC will be airing a New Mexico production!

Woo-hoo!!!

Will Saul Call New Mexico Home?

Posted by on September 12, 2013 | Comments Off on Will Saul Call New Mexico Home?

Breaking Bad (Season 4)

How does he know that guy, who knows that guy? How and where did he get through Law School? Was he born that way or did his special brand of criminal lawyering germinate out of some poignantly twisted circumstances from his past?

All these burning questions and MORE are now set to be answered in an hour long drama chalk full of the comedic elements Saul Goodman, Attorney at law has lent to Breaking Bad since his glorious entrance in season two.

Breaking Bad Wiki background on Saul Goodman née McGill

The prequel promises to introduce us to a pre-Walter White Saul Goodman. Plans for the show have been in the works for quite sometime as we’ve followed for you here and as Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan himself didn’t shy away from talking about here.

The most important question about the spin-off for this blogette and for much of the New Mexico film community at large is…Will the show live and breathe in the hometown of Breaking Bad? One original show insider tells us, “there’s no reason to believe it’s not” heading to NM.

Sony Pictures Television which will produce the show for AMC has long had a home here with Breaking Bad and is currently producing the NBC TV series, The Night Shift at Albuquerque Studios. Sounds like a natural fit!

What do you think?

New Mexico Hot for TV

UPDATE 7/2/2013: Breaking Bad creator, Vince Gillagan says Saul Goodman Spinoff Moving ‘Full Speed Ahead’ -The Wrap TV

Breaking Bad Spin-off NBC Series Night Shift NMFilm

As the world anxiously awaits the final eight episodes of the “best show on television”, Breaking Bad fans are equally curious for the verdict on what comes next for cast & crew.

Even before we learn the fate of Walter White & Co. Br Ba devotees look forward to the most likely spin-off in which the best, slimiest, lawless lawyer around, Saul Goodman will once again ease all with, “Better Call Saul”.

Best news for New Mexico is that if a deal is indeed inked for the series, the most likely place for the Saul Goodman led series to take place would be original series home, Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Home to the AMC series, Albuquerque Studios (The Avengers, The Lone Ranger) is well seasoned and at the ready for the return of all things Saul.

Last fall NBC shot the gritty drama pilot “After Hours” across the interstate, as a prospect for last season’s television schedule. After not making the first cut, then being volleyed back and forth from the pick-up list to the tentative list, an off-cycle short order has been placed for at least four episodes of the show.

With a little tweek to the working title, from “After Hours” to “The Late Shift” production is scheduled to get back underway at I-25 Studios (Transcendence, Lone Survivor) later this summer!

And as we’ve previously reported, up north some very special goings-on are going on around the return of the A&E hit series, Longmire and the highly anticipated Seth MacFarlane adaptation of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey for Fox television.

#NMFilm Get into it!
