Overview

The Untold History of Television provides an exciting glimpse behind the scenes of the groundbreaking series that have defined the landscape of popular culture.

Critically acclaimed for its writing, acting, and cinematography, Breaking Bad follows Walter White, an everyday chemistry teacher who, when faced with a life-changing terminal cancer diagnosis, turns to a life of crime in order to secure his family’s future. Gritty and real, Breaking Bad explores what happens when an ordinary man frees himself from the ethical and moral constraints of conventional society. In this text, Kathleen Olmstead examines Walter White’s descent from upstanding citizen to kingpin of a meth empire, and discusses the pop culture impact of this richly written and acted drama.

The ebook contains information about the inception and development of the series, thought-provoking episode analysis, and on-the-set stories about the cast and crew.
