BREAKING BAD's Vince Gilligan Finds Next Project in CBS' BATTLE CREEK

The series, which has been on the back burner at CBS since 2002, follows two detectives with opposite perspectives on life who team up on cases in Battle Creek, Michigan.
HOUSE creator David Shore will join Gilligan as writer, executive producer and showrunner. Also executive producing is BREAKING BAD's Mark Johnson. Gilligan is also toying with the idea of directing the series if he has the time.
Gilligan is also writing the upcoming Breaking Bad spin-off BETTER CALL SAUL for AMC. Aside from BREAKING BAD, Gilligan has also acted as producer on the TV series The X-Files, The Lone Gunmen and Harsh Realm -- the first two for which he was also a writer.
