Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spinoff focused on Saul Goodman, had its first teaser trailer released.
‘Better Call Saul’ Teaser Trailer
The nine-second teaser for Better Call Saul zeroes in on Saul (Bob Odenkirk) giving a pitch to a potential new client. “Lawyers: we’re like health insurance,” he says. “You hope you never need it, but man oh man, not having it? No!”
Better Call Saul’s timeline will start pre-Breaking Bad, which means Saul is looking a bit younger – with a thicker head of hair – than he did during the character’s run on the critically acclaimed show. Additionally, the character isn’t actually the successfully smarmy attorney he turns into, but rather the struggling lawyer known as Jimmy Gill.
"The series is set six years before Saul Goodman meets Walter White,” AMC has revealed. “When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet."
Jimmy Gill transforms into Saul Goodman throughout the course of Better Call Saul. Helping him make his way as a lawyer of petty (and larger scale) criminals is Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks).
Better Call Saul is slated to premiere sometime in 2015. Though the first season has yet to air, the spinoff has already been picked up by AMC for a sophomore season.
