About Breaking Bad
The explosive drama series that Variety calls "simply one of TV's great addictions," returns to AMC for the first part of its final season on Sunday, July 15 at 10pm ET/PT. The final season of the Emmy Award-winning drama consists of 16 episodes, with the first eight episodes beginning July 15 and culminating with the series' final eight episodes next summer 2013. Created by acclaimed writer, producer, and director Vince Gilligan and produced by Sony Pictures Television, the critically acclaimed series has garnered six Primetime Emmy Award wins and a Peabody, and been named to the American Film Institute's (AFI) list of the "Top 10 Programs of the Year" (2008, 2010, 2011). In the highly anticipated new season, a newly empowered and increasingly remorseless Walt White (Bryan Cranston) finds himself attempting to control a tenuous empire. But uneasy lies the head that wears the crown.
About Comic Book Men
Executive produced by Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy), Charlie Corwin's Original Media (LA Ink, Storm Chasers, Swamp People) and Elyse Seiden (Red State), Comic Book Men dives deep into fanboy culture by following the antics in and around master fanboy Smith's New Jersey comic shop, Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash, where both staff and customers geek out over mind-blowing pop culture artifacts and the legends behind them. Leading the crew behind the Secret Stash counter are moody manager Walt, uber-nerd Mike, career slacker Bryan, and Ming, the shop's go-to whipping boy. As the team buys, sells and discovers the treasures of the comic collecting world, they share all the juicy details with Kevin through their outrageous podcast, which is woven throughout the series.
