On Wednesday, AMC and Sony Pictures Television — the parties behind Breaking Bad — reached an agreement to create a BB prequel centering on Walter White’s shady lawyer Saul Goodman.

The project, which has been rumored for months,  will bypass the traditional pilot process and go straight to series.

The network announced that the one-hour spin-off  “will focus on the evolution” of the morally-challenged counselor before he became Heisenberg’s defender.

How soon before? That’s a good question. Bob Odenkirk plays Saul in Bad, which will have its series finale on Sept. 29; AMC has not said whether the actor will inhabit the role in the prequel, which has the possibility of depicting Goodman at a much younger age.
