Giancarlo Esposito, the actor behind the villainous Gus Fring, will host a new doco series titled The Broken and the Bad, which explores iconic moments from both series and ties them to similar real-world events.
The web series will premiere July 9th and looks to answer the question “How far from fiction is the world of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul?”
AMC, the network behind both shows and the documentary series says The Broken and the Bad is “inspired by the most memorable characters, situations and themes of the Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad universe and focuses on the real-world stories that mirror the fictional worlds of both shows.”
Giancarlo Esposito will guide the series as it delves into the stories of hitmen, and the economics of large-scale drug operations, among others. One episode is even said to focus on an American town where those with electromagnetic hypersensitivity can live in peace—a nod to Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman’s brother Chuck.
The Broken and the Bad looks set to debut on the AMC website. There’s currently little info regarding how and when new episodes will drop and if viewers from all regions can join in.
