Vince Gilligan graduated from Lloyd C. Bird High School in 1985, he later joined NYU’s Tisch School of Arts on a scholarship, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in film production. He then attended the laboratory school run by Longwood College.
While at NYU, he wrote the screenplay for Home Fries; Gilligan received the Virginia Governor’s Screenwriting Award in 1989 for the screenplay, which was later turned into a film. One of the judges of the competition was Mark Johnson, a film producer. He was impressed by Gilligan, saying he “was the most imaginative writer I’d ever read”.

Vince Gilligan Producer

Vince Gilligan Produced The X-Files and The Lone Gunmen. His big break came when he joined the Fox television drama and The X-Files. He is also a fan of the show, and he submitted a script to Fox which became the second-season episode “Soft Light”. He went on to write 29 more episodes, in addition to being co-executive producer of 44 episodes, executive producer of 40, co-producer of 24, and supervising producer of 20. He also co-created and became executive producer of The X-Files spin-off series The Lone Gunmen. The series only ran for one season of 13 episodes. He created, wrote, directed, and produced the AMC drama series Breaking Bad. He created the series with the premise that the hero would become the villain.

While pitching the show to studios, he was initially discouraged when he learned of the existing series Weeds and its similarities to the premise of Breaking Bad. While his producers convinced him that the show was different enough to still be successful, he later stated that he would not have gone forward with the idea had he known about Weeds earlier. Breaking Bad received widespread critical acclaim and has been praised by many critics as being among the greatest television dramas of all time.

The Writers Guild of America has awarded him four times in straight succession, from 2012 to 2014; three as a part of the Breaking Bad writing team and one individual for writing the episode “Box Cutter”. In September 2013, Sony Pictures Television announced a deal with AMC to produce a Breaking Bad spin-off prequel entitled Better Call Saul, to focus on character Saul Goodman from the original series, before he became Walter White’s lawyer, and to star Bob Odenkirk reprising his role as the title character.

He co-created the series with Breaking Bad writer Peter Gould, with both of them acting as showrunners. In November 2018 he confirmed that he is working on a Breaking Bad movie.

Vince Gilligan Writer

Gilligan wrote three episodes of short-lived police procedural series Robbery Homicide Division and an episode of the ABC series Night Stalker. In 2007, Vince Gilligan and his friend produced The X-Files with producer Frank Spotnitz who wrote a sci-fi pilot entitled A.M.P.E.D., which was not picked up for a full series. He made his acting debut in 2014 in “VCR Maintenance and Educational Publishing”, the ninth episode of the fifth season of NBC’s comedy series Community. In September 2013, Sony announced that it struck a deal with CBS to produce a new television series created by Gilligan and David Shore entitled Battle Creek. He co-wrote the first episode with Shore, the showrunner of the series. CBS ordered thirteen episodes and the series aired on CBS starting March 1, 2015. CBS decided not to renew the series for a second season.
