“Brett Martin was generous enough to provide us with some of the photographs he took inside the Breaking Bad writer’s room during the writing on Season 4, and while much of the season is clearly already mapped out in the cards, there are also several cards that don’t line up with what we actually saw transpire in season four. They were obviously ideas and thoughts the writers had about the direction of the season before everything was finalized, and I think it’s fascinating to see some of the paths not taken.” —Dustin Rowles, Inside the Breaking Bad Writers’ Room and a glimpse at storylines not pursued
The creative team behind Breaking Bad divulge how they created the stories for a show that was recently named one of the best written TV series of all time: The Writers’ Room Episode 1, Season 1. Here’s a viewing tip.
“Vince Gilligan, he’s the devil. He is smarter than you. He is luckier than you. Whatever you think is supposed to happen, I’m telling you, the exact reverse opposite of that is gonna happen. Vince isn’t afraid to write long action scenes. Often, a TV drama is mostly dialog. Speaking of dialog, the way Vince writes is considered in these days. Forget Calder Willingham, William Goldman, Quentin Tarantino or even Richard Price. If you want to be read, write it like Gilligan.”
These scripts are here because the only way to learn how to write a TV script is to read A LOT of other TV scripts, and there aren’t many places you can do that.
