CBS Orders Breaking Bad Creator's Cop Drama

First developed it more than a decade ago


Hot off of his big Emmy win, Vince Gilligan has landed his next project.

An early drama spec from the Breaking Bad creator has been granted a series production order for the 2014-15 season. The project, which was first developed at CBS in 2002, centers on two detectives with very different world views who are teamed up. Together, they must answer the question: Are cynicism, guile and deception enough to clean up the semi-mean streets of Battle Creek, Michigan, in the face of a complete lack of resources, or is the exact opposite true -- it takes naïveté, trust and a boatload of resources?
