The TV show Breaking Bad was a smash hit for AMC. The network will soon air the third season of the prequel series, Better Call Saul. It traces how lawyer Saul Goodman falls in with the characters of Breaking Bad.

Heather Marion, one of the writers on the show, is coming to Boise to speak to students and the public about her journey from a possible career as a mortician and years of assistant work in Hollywood to the writer's room of one of TV's hottest shows.
