'Breaking Bad' heads to the Sundance Channel
AMC's Emmy-winning drama will air in syndication on sister network
Fans of "Breaking Bad" can once again experience Walter White's (Bryan Cranston) fascinating transformation from mild-mannered chemistry teacher to Heisenberg the Meth King when the Emmy-winning drama makes the move to the Sundance Channel.
The basic cable station, which is one of AMC's sister networks, acquired the syndication rights to the beloved series and will start airing two episodes a night from the pilot to the Season 4 finale, beginning Monday, March 4.
"'Breaking Bad' has become a benchmark for storytelling at its finest and we are proud to air this series as we embark on our own scripted programming with the upcoming debut of 'Rectify,' which is produced by the same incredible team behind 'Breaking Bad'," said Sarah Barnett, Sundance Channel's general manager and executive vice president, in a press release. "We are looking forward to giving viewers another opportunity to catch up with what has been called TV's best drama."
"Breaking Bad" will air following the premiere of Sundance Channel's original series "The Staircase: Last Chance" on March 4 and 11; "Top of the Lake" from March 18-April 15; and "Rectify" -- which hails from the aforementioned "Breaking Bad" producers, Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein -- from April 22 to May 27.
"Breaking Bad" in syndication begins Monday, March 4, at 11 p.m. ET/PT on Sundance Channel.
