Breaking Bad: One of the best TV series and why!
Lecture in English by the American award winning screenwriter and Professor Andrew Horton on the TV series "Breaking Bad"…
The Hellenic American Union and the Hellenic American College (HAEC) in collaboration with the Hellenic American University (Manchester, NH, USA) present a lecture by Professor of Film & Media Studies at the University of Oklahoma Andrew Horton. In his lecture Andrew Horton will discuss the elements of a successful TV series like the highly acclaimed Breaking Bad.
How did an American television family drama about a high school chemistry teacher in New Mexico who starts making and selling methamphetamine and turning to a life of crime once he realizes he has cancer in order to protect his family’s financial future become one of the most popular series in TV history? Professor Horton will discuss how the creator of the show, Vince Gilligan, took on the goal of turning his hero, Walter White (Bryon Cranston), into the antagonist. Attention will be paid to the strong screenplays, actors, locations and themes that take real chances in contrast to traditional TV series.
