Vince Gilligan Admits That He Didn't "Even Remotely" Predict the Success of Breaking Bad

Jul 18 2014 - 9:47am

Breaking Bad is long over by now, but creator Vince Gilligan is hard at work during Summer TCA [1] promoting his new shows, Better Call Saul [2] and Battle Creek. During the panel for the latter, Gilligan admitted that he really didn't see the massive success of Breaking Bad coming. "Not even remotely did I see the success of Breaking Bad," he said. "Twelve years ago, I thought I'd be lucky not to be living in half of a double-wide with the plastic taped up. I did not see it coming. It was a wonderful lottery win on my part." Wonderful indeed! Though Gilligan will be spending most of his time on Better Call Saul, he did write the original script for Battle Creek and will be overseeing the cop comedy, starring Josh Duhamel [3] and Dean Winters as new partners, as an executive producer. The show doesn't yet have a trailer or a premiere date, but stay tuned for more information.
