And what beautiful symmetry to be reunited with Zack Van Amburg, Jamie Erlicht and Chris Parnell [former Sony executives now at Apple TV+]! Jamie and Zack were the first two to say yes to ‘Breaking Bad’ all those years ago. They have built a great team at Apple and I and my wonderful longtime partners at Sony Pictures Television are delighted to be in business with them,” Gilligan said in a statement.
