AMC Releases Extremely Short And Smarmy 'Better Call Saul' Teaser
It isn't a very long trailer, but AMC played a nine-second teaser for Better Call Saul during its Breaking Bad marathon last night. It's Saul Goodman—with a little more hair—being Saul Goodman. Well, actually, it's Saul Goodman (played by Bob Oldenkirk) being Jimmy McGill. Goodman is a pseudonym that he develops later in life, sometime before his entanglement with Walter White. According to AMC, the show is set in 2002, six years before Breaking Bad begins. Goodman is then Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer working with Mike Erhmantraut (Jonathan Banks), and "the series will track Jimmy's transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts 'criminal' in 'criminal lawyer.'"
Jimmy McGill, however, appears to just be another alias of Goodman's. A billboard recently popped up in Albuquerque advertising the services of James M. McGill. When you call the working number, you'll get an Irish lilt suggesting you leave a message, the Independent reports.
The trailer confirms that the show will air in February 2015. Here's the clip:
