'Better Call Saul': AMC, Postmates join hands to deliver free Los Pollos Hermanos meals to fans
AMC is working to promote the latest season of 'Breaking Bad' spinoff 'Better Call Saul' with a truly ingenious manner
It's not that 'Better Call Saul' needed the popularity boost, but AMC's latest promotion will certainly not hurt. The network announced today that they have struck a partnership with on-demand service and logistics company Postmates to deliver meals from Gus Fring's (Giancarlo Esposito) infamous Los Pollos Hermanos restaurant.
On August 20th, 21st, and 22nd, fans of the drama from key areas within New York City and Los Angeles can order a special mini-meal of Fring's famous fried chicken and curly fries via the Postmates app. The meal will be delivered for free, as long as supplies last, beginning at 12 p.m. local time each day.
Those wishing to partake in the event can order by visiting Postmates.com or download the app on their Android or Apple devices.
'Better Call Saul' is executive produced by Peter Gould, Vince Gilligan, Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Thomas Schnauz and Gennifer Hutchison. The series recently garnered a 2018 Peabody Award, and, over three seasons, has earned 23 Emmy Award nominations, three Golden Globe Award nominations, two Writers Guild Awards, three Critics' Choice Awards, a Television Critics Association Award and two AFI Awards for 'TV Programs of the Year,' among many other Guild nominations.
The acclaimed 'Breaking Bad' spinoff is currently in its fourth season and airs on AMC every Monday at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The season deals with Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) dealing with the aftermath of his brother Chuck's (Michael McKean) death and beginning to take his first steps into the criminal world. His transformation into Saul Goodman is set to put his future as a lawyer — and his relationship with Kim (Rhea Seehorn) — in jeopardy.
But it's not just Jimmy who's affected by Chuck's death. Former colleagues Howard (Patrick Fabian) and Kim are equally stricken and find themselves in the opposite sides of a battle sparked by the two McGill brothers.
In the meantime, Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) takes on a more active role as Madrigal Electromotive’s newest (and most thorough) security consultant. Hector's (Mark Margolis) collapse at the end of season 3 has sent shockwaves through the Albuquerque underworld and has thrown the cartels into chaos. Gus and Nacho (Michael Mando) both have their plans torn apart, though it's Nacho who himself at the most risk.
