New Vince Gilligan, Rhea Seehorn Show Won’t Be Another Antihero Story

Apple TV+ announced Thursday that it has ordered a two-season project from Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan. Better Call Saul star Rhea Seehorn will once again team up with Gilligan as the lead in the untitled project by Sony Pictures TV

Gilligan said in a statement that the series won’t be an antihero story like his past projects.

After 15 years, I figured it was time to take a break from writing antiheroes, and who’s more heroic than the brilliant Rhea Seehorn? It’s long past time she had her own show, and I feel lucky to get to work on it with her.

Not much is known about the untitled project, but it is described as a blended, grounded genre drama. 

Gilligan will serve as the show’s showrunner and executive producer. Former Sony Pictures TV President Jeff Frost and Diane Mercer will also executive produce. Seehorn is fresh off her first Emmy nomination for best supporting actress in a drama series for her role as Kim Wexler on Better Call Saul

The announcement comes just a month after Better Call Saul’s six-season run wrapped up. The show secured 46 Emmy nominations over the course of its run and drew in nearly 2 million viewers during its finale.
