'Breaking Bad' Creator
Breaking Bad, the AMC drama that's been referred to in the same breath as The Wire and The Sopranos, is currently in its final episodes. We revisit our conversation from last year when creator Vince Gilligan sat down with The Business producer Darby Maloney to talk about the show coming to an end. He also says that to run a TV series you need to be a cult leader and that there was never a rivalry for AMC money with Matthew Weiner's Mad Men.
