'Breaking Bad' Spin-Off BETTER CALL SAUL to Be Shot in Albuquerque

According to The Hollywood Reporter, it was officially announced that the "Breaking Bad" spinoff, to be titled BETTER CALL SAUL, will be shot in Albuquerque, New Mexico, following in the footsteps of the original AMC series.

In a statement, Nick Maniatis, director of New Mexico's film office revealed, "We welcome this incredible production team back to the state. They have proven to be excellent partners with the city of Albuquerque and the state of New Mexico."

Mayor Richard Berry added that the city happily welcomed back the production, noting that Breaking Bad increased tourism in Albuquerque as visitors scouted out popular sites from the show. "Given the tremendous acclaim associated with Vince Gilligan's productions, we are thrilled to learn that Better Call Saul will be filmed in Albuquerque," Berry said.

The new AMC series will feature returning stars Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks, rerpising their roles as Saul and Mike, two of the very few characters who survived the final episodes of Breaking Bad.

The new roster of characters will include Burt, Dr. Thurber, Beth, Eddie, and Zak and Luke. Burt is described as a "Kennedy" type lawyer in a white-shoe law firm. Dr. Thurber and Beth are also supposed to be lawyers. Eddie is a career criminal, a cool guy who speaks Spanish. Zak and Luke are skateboarding twins around 20 years old."

Co-created and executive produced by "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan, "Better Call Saul" tells the story of mall-based super lawyer Saul Goodman in the years before he became Walter White's attorney. From parking tickets to mass murder, from slip-and-fall to bond fraud, Saul handles it all.

"Breaking Bad," which concluded on AMC in late September, has for five seasons followed Walter White, a chemistry teacher diagnosed with terminal cancer, who turns to making methamphetamines to support his family, ending up a ruthless drug lord. The series has won ten Primetime Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series in 2013 and is regarded by critics as one of the best ever dramatic television series.
