In-Depth Interview – Gordon Smith

I should probably start off by saying I used to work on “Better Call Saul,” and was fortunate enough to get to know Gordon, and the rest of the writers, a little bit while working on Season 2. He’s a great guy, and I want to congratulate him on his second Emmy nomination. Way to go man! If you’re interested in seeing the other nominees you can find them here: Emmy Winners 2017

I’m going to keep my personal experiences from working on the show out of this post, as this post is about Gordon and what it’s like writing for “Better Call Saul.” Fun fact for you all, he started out as a P.A. on season 3 of “Breaking Bad” and worked his way up into the Writer’s Room on “Better Call Saul.” If you’re a young writer, this is a great way to get into the Writer’s Room.

I’m not including quotes from the interview, because there are spoilers in this interview if you haven’t seen this far into the show.  ***This is a spoiler heavy interview*** That being said, it gives some great insights on how the writers of this show approach writing out a single episode, and how that fits into the season.
