Breaking Bad turns 10 on Saturday, and its birthday gift is… a YouTube channel.
Sony Pictures Television, which produced the critically acclaimed drama starring Bryan Cranston as a high school teacher who transforms into a drug lord, announced on Friday that it has launched an official YouTube channel dedicated to the series. To get the archives started, creator Vince Gilligan sat down with Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick for a Fireside Chat at the YouTube Space, which you can watch here. In the hourlong interview, Gilligan delves into the key moments in the show’s history while sharing his storytelling secrets.
The channel become the home for thousands of video clips as well as fan-generated videos, which will continue to be culled from people using the hashtag #MyBreakingBadVideo in their social posts of their content. Breaking Bad— which also starred Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, Jonathan Banks, and Bob Odenkirk — earned a whopping 16 Emmys over its five-season, 62-episode run, most notably with back-to-back wins as Outstanding Drama Series.
