Next week, AMC kicks off a landmark marathon of its Emmy(R) Award-winning drama “Breaking Bad,” featuring all 33 episodes from the series’ three seasons. Beginning with its critically acclaimed pilot through last season’s gripping cliffhanger finale, AMC will air two back-to-back episodes of “Breaking Bad” every Wednesday night through March 2011.
Created by acclaimed writer/producer/director Vince Gilligan, “Breaking Bad” has garnered numerous awards and accolades, and has been heralded as “the best show on television” (Los Angeles Times). Suspenseful, volatile and shocking, “Breaking Bad” pairs the vibrant look and feel of a modern western with darkly comic moments that show just “how thrilling TV can be when it lives on the edge” (TV Guide).
Throughout the series, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) – an unrepentant ‘everyman’ – battles dueling identities: a desperate husband and father trying to provide for his family, and a newly appointed key player in the Albuquerque drug trade.
The inaugural season of “Breaking Bad” premiered in January 2008 to overwhelming critical acclaim from audiences and critics alike. The bold drama has won six Emmy(R) Awards, a Peabody, multiple Guild Awards, and was named one of AFI’s Top 10 Television Programs (2008). The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television.
WHEN: AMC’s “Breaking Bad” Marathon begins Wednesday, December 8 immediately following AMC’s “Action Pack” programming block with the Pilot episode followed by Episode 101, “Cat’s in the Bag…” Two episodes will air back-to-back each Wednesday night through March 2011.
