And what nice 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 people to say yes to 'Breaking Bad' all those years ago. They've built a great team at Apple, and my wonderful, longtime partners at Sony Pictures Television and I are excited to be in business with them," Gilligan said in a statement.
