Vince Gilligan during NWS eventWhen Vince Gilligan made a National Writers Series appearance in February of 2012 millions of people were addicted to the show he created about a desperate chemistry teacher, an RV, and a town named Albuquerque – Breaking Bad.

One of Hollywood’s most successful producers and writers, Gilligan was an incredibly down to earth guy. He traveled to Traverse City with his wife Holly and enjoyed a scotch at Black Star Farms.

A year and half later, when author Jamie Ford came to Traverse City to talk about his new book Songs of Willow Frost, the finale of the award-winning and critically acclaimed show was set to air. Ford watched the finale at the State Theater along with hundreds of other Traverse City area fans of the show.

Better Call Saul, a prequel to Breaking Bad will premier on February 8 on AMC. Vince Gilligan tells Wired’s Rob Tannebaum a bit about his new series. Better Call Saul is not Gilligan’s only new project  Battle Creek will debut on CBS on March 1. Also created by Gilligan, Battle Creek features “two mismatched law enforcement officers whose polar opposite views of the world and crime-solving breed frustration, disdain and humor as they clean up the hardscrabble streets of Battle Creek, Michigan.”
