AMC’s ‘Better Call Saul': ‘Breaking Bad’ Prequel Spinoff to Debut “Music Video” This Weekend
Sneak peeks of 'Breaking Bad''s upcoming 'Better Call Saul' prequel spinoff have been few and far between on the road to its February 2015 premiere, but this coming weekend will offer up our most bizarre look at Saul's past yet. In lieu of a proper trailer, get ready for a sneak peek of 'Better Call Saul' with a brand-new music vido to debut on AMC!
Per AMC, the new sneak peek of 'Better Call Saul' will air on Sunday, October 5 at 8:25 P.M., during the 'Breaking Bad' binge marathon the network has been running. Performed by country artist Junior Brown, co-written by executive producers and co-showrunners Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould and series composer Dave Porter (who also created the opening theme and score for 'Breaking Bad'), the self-titled "Better Call Saul" song will likely accompany new footage of the hotly-anticipated series.
Premiering in February 2015 and already renewed for a second season, here's how AMC describes 'Better Call Saul':
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, woven with dark humor.
'Better Call Saul' will feature Jonathan Banks returning as Mike Ehrmantraut, alongside a new cast that includes Christopher Guest alum Michael McKean as Saul's brother Chuck, ‘The Last Exorcism’ star Patrick Fabian as “Kennedy-type” white-shoe law firm lawyer Hamlin, Rhea Seehorn as fellow lawyer Kim, and ‘Orphan Black”s Michael Mando as Spanish-speaking career criminal Nacho. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have also expressed their interest in appearing on the series, while Robert Forster claims his "Disappearer" character will return, and Dean Norris appeared to reject the idea of a cameo.
We'll see for ourselves with this Sunday's 'Better Call Saul' music video, but what do you think? Are you looking forward to a pre-'Breaking Bad' spinoff of Saul's younger days, musical inclinations and all?
