Breaking Bad - FX "Why we rejected the show"

AMC’s Breaking Bad could have wound up at another cable network, but FX passed on Vince Gilligan’s pilot script.

Back in 2007-ish, FX was seemingly the ideal home for the project, given its slew of dark, edgy antihero dramas, like The Shield, Rescue Me and Nip/Tuck. In an interview with Kim Masters on KCRW’s The Business, FX president John Landgraf explained why he turned down the show, which would later become a critical and commercial hit for AMC.
