With the show a mere two weeks from airing, AMC made available the above video involving a sit down and some background leaks from the folks in front of and behind the lens. Vince Gilligan explains how the upcoming prequel takes place six years before Saul Goodman and Walter White meet, and how Breaking Bad superfans will be entitled to an easter egg here and there, though he explains that Breaking Bad is not a prerequisite for Better Call Saul.
We also learn that Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman has an older, more successful brother who he tries to replicate, but falls short. Bob Odenkirk also teases some situations that came between the two brothers, which leads them to the position they both find themselves in.
Be sure to check out the two day premiere February 8th and 9th on AMC.
