AMC's "Breaking Bad" Season 5 is a dramatic series that follows protagonist Walt White (Cranston), a chemistry teacher who lives in New Mexico with his wife (Gunn) and teenage son (Mitte) who has cerebral palsy. White is diagnosed with Stage III cancer and given a prognosis of two years left to live. With a new sense of fearlessness based on his medical prognosis, and a desire to gain financial security for his family, White chooses to enter a dangerous world of drugs and crime and ascends to power in this world. The series explores how a fatal diagnosis such as White's releases a typical man from the daily concerns and constraints of normal society and follows his transformation from mild-mannered family man to a kingpin of the drug trade.

The series stars Bryan Cranston who won three consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor for his portrayal of Walter White and Aaron Paul, who won the 2010 Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Jesse Pinkman. The rest of the cast includes Anna Gunn as Skyler White; Dean Norris as Hank Schrader; Betsy Brandt as Marie Schrader; RJ Mitte as Walter, Jr; Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman; and Jonathan Banks as Mike.

Gilligan and Mark Johnson are executive producers of "Breaking Bad" for High Bridge Productions, Inc. and Gran Via Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television. AMC's Joel Stillerman, SVP of original programming, production and digital content; Christina Wayne, SVP of scripted series and miniseries; and Vlad Wolynetz, VP of production, series and movies, oversee development and production for the network.
