Breaking Bad Creator Vince Gilligan to Air New Show on CBS


We may be near the end of the road for Walter White and Breaking Bad, but just because series creator Vince Gilligan is done with Walter White it doesn’t mean he’s done creating awesome television shows. According to Deadline, Gilligan and fellow TV producing icon David Shore have sold a detective crime drama to CBS called Battle Creek.

Per Deadline:

In a dream pairing, the man of the hour, Vince Gilligan, coming off a best series win on Sunday for his hit AMC drama Breaking Bad, has teamed with House creator David Shore for Battle Creek, which has closed at CBS with a series production order for the 2014-15 season.

TV viewers are very familiar with Gilligan at the moment, who’s producing credentials extend back to the 1990s and The X-Files, but David Shore is a legend in his own right as well. Before creating House for Fox, Shore has classic shows like NYPD Blue and Family Law, the latter of which aired on CBS.

Gilligan was actually developing Battle Creek for CBS back in 2002 before he struck gold with Breaking Bad. But the pairing of Gilligan and Shore is something TV junkies will be crazy about and raises hope that Battle Creek could be a follow up hit for Gilligan.
