AMC considering 'Breaking Bad' live aftershow

AMC is reportedly planning a live companion after-show for the last eight episodes of Vince Gilligan’s dark drama starring Bryan Cranston.


“Breaking Bad” might get “The Walking Dead" treatment for the end of the series’ fifth and final season.

In the style of “Talking Dead,” Vince Gilligan’s dark drama starring Bryan Cranston would get a talk show entitled “Talking Bad.” It would also be a half-hour, like “Talking Dead.”

Michael Davies’ Embassy Row would handle “Talking Bad.” Embassy Row also produces “Talking Dead.”

“Talking Dead,” hosted by Chris Hardwick (who also hosts the Nerdist podcasts), was the network’s first live after-show, where the current episode of “The Walking Dead” is recapped. Developments are also discussed with the zombie show’s actors, producers and fans.  The show will expand to a full hour for season three.

The talker airs Sundays, immediately after an encore presentation of the zombie drama. “Talking Dead” premiered in 2011, in combination with the drama’s second season.

“Breaking Bad” also stars Aaron Paul. The show is set in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and is about a high school chemistry teacher with lung cancer who begins making methamphetamine to build a nice cash stash for his family.

WOW & OMG Why the heck not. This series is amazing. My husband hates tv other than the weather station and has been glued to the black box with me watching this series. The story line is thrilling, exciting and edge of your seat.....Walt certainly broke bad love it. Nerdy Nervous Intimidated nerd Walter..... to hot hot hot.And Jesse well mmmm tassty, Walt Junior mmmm Actors are amazing and each episode leaves us wanting the next. I can't imagine my life without Walt.Please keep up with the seasons. If true blood can come up with never ending feast of vampire stories, breaking bad can go so much further.

Talking Dead is a really hit and miss show, so I'm not sure if this is a wise move or not. Much like TD, the success of Talking Bad will depend on who they line up as guests. When the celebrity guests are real fans, Talking Dead can be very entertaining. When they are just there to promote something, the quality of the conversation suffers.
