Netflix and Sony Pictures Television have partnered up to make the “Breaking Bad” spinoff series, “Better Call Saul” available exclusively to streaming members in Europe and Latin America shortly after its airing in the U.S. beginning in 2014.
For viewers in the U.S. and Canada, the complete first season of “Better Call Saul” will be available to Netflix members after its season finale on AMC Networks. The deal makes Netflix the exclusive subscription television service in all its territories for both the new series and the original.
“Better Call Saul” will feature Bob Odenkirk reprising his role as criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. The series is co-created and executive produced by “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan. The show will follow mall-based super lawyer Saul Goodman in the years before he became Walter White’s attorney. From parking tickets to mass murder, from slip-and-fall to bond fraud, Saul handles it all.
Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer, said,
“‘Breaking Bad’ is widely recognized as one of the great TV experiences in this new golden age of television. It has also proven very popular with Netflix subscribers around the world. This spin-off promises to continue its tradition of powerful storytelling. We are proud to be in business with Sony Pictures Television to bring Saul Goodman to our subscribers around the world.”
