“Breaking Bad,” the two-time Emmy® Award winner for Outstanding Drama Series that originally aired on AMC and was created and produced by Vince Gilligan, follows Walter White (Emmy® Award-winning Bryan Cranston), a high school chemistry teacher who lives in New Mexico with his wife Skyler (Emmy® Award-Winning Anna Gunn) and teenage son Walt Jr. (RJ Mitte), who has cerebral palsy. White is diagnosed with Stage III cancer and given a prognosis of two years left to live. With a new sense of fearlessness based on his medical prognosis and a desire to secure his family’s financial security, White chooses to enter the dangerous but profitable world of drugs with his former student Jesse Pinkman (Emmy® Award-winning Aaron Paul) and begins a dark ascent to power. Other iconic characters featured in “Breaking Bad” include Marie Schrader (Betsy Brandt) and her husband Hank (Dean Norris), Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) and Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito).
