'Breaking Bad' Producer Inks New Overall Deal at Sony TV
Sam Catlin not only will look to develop new scripted projects for broadcast and cable, but also join the staff of Fox's Greg Kinnear drama "Rake."
With Breaking Bad set to end its run, writer/producer Sam Catlin is looking toward the future.
Catlin has inked a rich new overall deal at Sony Pictures Television, which produces Breaking Bad. As part of the two-year pact, he will develop for both network and cable. Additionally, he will join the staff of Fox’s mid-season drama Rake, starring Oscar nominee Greg Kinnear as a brilliant but self-destructive criminal defense lawyer, as a co-executive producer.
Sony remains an ideal fit for Catlin, who has done much of his previous work, including Breaking Bad, Canterbury’s Law and NBC’s Kidnapped, for the studio. Catlin joined Bad during the series' second season as a co-producer; he completed the final season as co-executive producer. In that time, he shared in the AMC show's Emmy nominations for best series in both 2010 and 2012.
The Emmy-nominated writer, who penned the screenplay for dark indie comedy The Great New Wonderful, is repped by UTA and attorney Ken Richman of Hansen Jacobson Teller Hoberman Newman Warren & Richman.
