AMC TO AIR LIVE AFTER SHOW "TALKING SAUL" FOLLOWING "BETTER CALL SAUL" SEASON TWO PREMIERE AND FINALE EPISODES

COMIC CHRIS HARDWICK AND GUESTS WILL DISCUSS AND ANALYZE DETAILS OF THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED, EMMY(R)-NOMINATED SERIES

Series Creators and Executive Producers Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould and Star Bob Odenkirk Will Be Guests on First Episode

New York, NY - February 12, 2016 - AMC announced today that it will air a live after show, "Talking Saul," following "Better Call Saul's" season two premiere and finale episodes on Monday, February 15 and Monday, April 18 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT, respectively. Hosted by comic and super-fan Chris Hardwick (Nerdist, "Talking Dead"), the hour-long talk show will feature series cast, producers, celebrity fans and more reacting to and discussing the twists and turns of "Better Call Saul" and taking questions and comments from viewers. Series creators and executive producers Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould and star Bob Odenkirk (Jimmy McGill) will appear as guests on the show's debut episode.

"The 'Talking' franchise really started as a way to serve the fans by harnessing and providing a focal point for discussion around our original programming, and heading into its second season it's clear Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould and everyone associated with 'Better Call Saul' have given rise to both a vibrant fan community and plenty to talk about," said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV. "We are excited to have Chris Hardwick on board as host to engage the show's dedicated and loyal fans - many of whom have followed the characters of Saul Goodman and Mike Ehrmantraut since 'Breaking Bad' - in a meaningful and entertaining conversation around the series."

"Talking Saul" is produced by Embassy Row with executive producers Michael Davies, Hardwick, Jen Patton, Brandon Monk and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

A prequel to the award-winning series "Breaking Bad," "Better Call Saul" follows down-on-his-luck Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) as he navigates the moral dilemmas of the legal world while trying to step out of his older brother's shadow and make a name for himself. Season one found Jimmy stumble upon a large class-action lawsuit, which led to a promising job opportunity at a large firm. Having arrived at a fork in the road, will Jimmy take the straight and narrow path with a safe corporate job or will he fall back into his "Slippin' Jimmy" con-artist ways?

"Better Call Saul" debuted in February 2015 as the season's #1 new series on cable among viewers, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54. It now holds the title as the 3rd highest-rated first season in cable history among adults 18-49 and adults 25-54. Its inaugural season garnered seven Primetime Emmy(R) Award nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series, won two Critics' Choice TV Awards for Best Actor in a Drama Series (Bob Odenkirk) and Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Jonathan Banks) and the TCA Award for Outstanding New Program and was recognized by AFI as one of the Top 10 Programs of 2015.

"Better Call Saul" is executive produced by showrunners Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein and Thomas Schnauz, with Gennifer Hutchison as co-executive producer. The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television. In addition to Odenkirk, the series stars Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut, Michael McKean as Jimmy's brother, Chuck McGill, Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler, Patrick Fabian as Howard Hamlin and Michael Mando as Nacho Varga.
