Apple TV+ today announced a two-season straight-to-series order for “Untitled Vince Gilligan Project,” a new series helmed by acclaimed creator Vince Gilligan (“Breaking Bad,” “Better Call Saul”) and starring Emmy Award-nominee Rhea Seehorn (“Better Call Saul,” “Cooper’s Bar”) in the lead role.
Hailing from Sony Pictures Television, the new series will mark Gilligan’s first project following the creation of “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul.” It also marks the second collaboration for Gilligan with “Better Call Saul” star Seehorn, who recently landed an Emmy Award nomination for her widely celebrated performance in the series.
Gilligan will serve as showrunner and executive producer. Jeff Frost and Diane Mercer also executive produce, with Jenn Carroll producing for High Bridge Productions.
The “Untitled Vince Gilligan Project” is the latest Apple Original series from Sony Pictures Television, joining hit space drama series “For All Mankind,” which is currently in production on its fourth season; the highly anticipated series adaption of “Dark Matter,” starring Joel Edgerton, who also serves as executive producer, and Jennifer Connelly; the broadly acclaimed and hit murder-mystery comedy series “The Afterparty” from Academy Award, BAFTA and Golden Globe Award winners Chris Miller and Phil Lord; and, upcoming comedy “Platonic,” starring Emmy Award-nominee Rose Byrne and Seth Rogen.
Apple TV+ offers premium, compelling drama and comedy series, feature films, groundbreaking documentaries, and kids and family entertainment, and is available to watch across all your favorite screens. After its launch on November 1, 2019, Apple TV+ became the first all-original streaming service to launch around the world, and has premiered more original hits and received more award recognitions faster than any other streaming service in its debut. To date, Apple Original films, documentaries, and series have been honored with 276 wins and 1,153 award nominations and counting, including multi-Emmy Award-winning comedy “Ted Lasso” and this year’s Oscar Best Picture winner “CODA.”
