AMC greenlights "Breaking Bad" spinoff "Better Call Saul"
The Bob Odenkirk-starring prequel has been greenlit after lengthy negotiations. AMC and Sony released a statement saying "plans call for Saul to be a one-hour prequel that will focus on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman character before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer." PLUS: Other networks were interested when AMC almost didn't take it.
