Breaking Bad Pilot: How to Write the Perfect TV Pilot

In my opinion, the Breaking Bad pilot is by far is as perfect as a television show as has ever been produced. The genius behind Walter White’s adventures into dealing meth is creator Vince Gillian. After watching the pilot episode of Breaking Bad I was hooked. Years later I wanted to really break down what Vince Gillian was able to tap into when crafting the series.

The good folks over at Lessons from the Screenplay created this AMAZING video breaking down the Breaking Bad pilot episode. If you want to become a screenwriter not only do you need to watch the video below but you NEED to turn on Netflix and binge the entire series of Breaking Bad.

Breaking Bad is celebrated as one of the best TV shows of all time—but every series has to start somewhere. This video looks at how the structure of the pilot episode sets up everything the audience needs to know about the series.
