It was a casual phone conversation with an old friend that made Vince think about creating the show which tells the story about deadly sick chemistry teacher who ends up being a drug dealer.

Vince Gilligan reveals all the secrets about his most famous TV show. According to him, 10 years ago his friend made a joke which was later used as the main idea of ‘Breaking Bad’.

It was a casual phone conversation with an old friend that made Vince think about creating the show which tells the story about deadly sick chemistry teacher who ends up being a drug dealer.

Friendly conversation occurred when both Vince Gilligan and Tom Schnauz were looking for a new gig after creating The X-Files.

In an AMA session on Reddit Gilligan said that Tom made a joke about putting methamphetamine lab into a recreational vehicle and travelling across America. Even though it was just a joke, it make Vince think about it all the time.

He also mentioned that the idea of doing a show with such plot would be really funny to explore. That was the inspiration for him.

In his interview Vincent added that nowadays he was thinking about turning the made up fried chicken fast food restaurant ‘Los Pollos Hermanos’ into the real one. Thanks to a businessman who was interested in it, the idea of opening the restaurant seemed to be possible. It was firstly presented to Gilligan during the good folks at Sony. The ‘Breaking Bad’ father wants to see that idea turning into reality.

Considered to be one of the greatest shows on American and world television, ‘Breaking Bad’ ended in 2013 after 5 seasons. Bryan Cranston, who played lead character Walter White, and Aaron Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman automatically became worldwide famous.

Vincent Gilligan has worked on ‘Better call Saul’, ‘Breaking Bad’ spin-off, since the end of the show.
