The final chapter of Breaking Bad has played out operatically, and the series has begun to fade from public consciousness. Now is the time to milk that cash cow for all that sweet, sweet butter.
Borrowing and expanding upon the original pitches published by Elizabeth Gomez, I present: Break Bad Spinoff Pitches, Part Deux.
Yellow Cab: Skyler White, now Skyler Lambert, takes her experience as a taxi dispatcher and moves to New York City to start a new life with the Yellow Cab company. Unable to escape her past, and confronted with new horrors on the mean streets of NYC, she begins a steady descent into madness. A serialized “reimagining” of Taxi Driver.
Mindless Tucco Salamanca: Before Tucco was a psychopathic drug kingpin, he tasted the straight life by writing and starring in his own sketch comedy show. Watch Tucco violently and brutally satirize current events while physically threatening his audience. Mind of Mencia meets Morton Downey Jr. meets “Chopper” Read.

Crazy adventures ensue when the kids get caught up with Todd in various zany white power schemes as he learns that babysitting is the hardest job of all.

Each week is presented like a piece of a puzzle and at the end of the season your children have learned how to make a powerfully addictive methamphetamine. Science is fun again.
