The signing of a contract with Vince Gilligan, the creator of “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul,” has significantly increased Apple TV+’s original programming. Apple agreed to a two-season deal for his new project, a grounded drama that will not be connected to any of the other popular shows.

Rhea Seehorn, the star of “Better Call Saul” and a nominee for an Emmy, was mentioned as having a lead role in the future series by Deadline, which broke the news of the development. According to the source, Gilligan will also serve as the project’s showrunner and executive producer. 

Apple would be searching for additional high-profile shows to fill the hole left by the departed comedy series Ted Lasso, while Gilligan would want another hit show to showcase his credentials. The third and final season of the soccer-themed tale is now being produced by the show’s executive producer and star, Jason Sudeikis. With numerous Emmy wins, the show has served as a spokesperson for Apple TV+. Thanks to a partnership with Electronic Arts, Richmond AFC, the team from the show, will appear in the next EA Sports FIFA 23.

This year, Apple TV+ received nine Emmy awards, which puts it on par with rivals Hulu, Disney+, and Amazon Prime, which received 10, 8, and seven awards, respectively. Notable is Ted Lasso, who won all four Primetime Emmys for Apple TV+.

With several transactions this year, the business hopes to broaden its streaming portfolio. It claimed to have reached a deal with Futuro Studio in August to adapt original podcasts into TV series. Major League Baseball and Major League Soccer are among the leagues it has agreements with, and it is investing extensively in live sports streaming.
