Bryan Singer Heads to Battle Creek

March 3, 2014


Announced last September, "Battle Creek," the upcoming AMC series from "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan, has, according to Deadline, found a pilot helmer in Bryan Singer (The Usual Suspects, X-Men).

A contemporary detective drama, "Battle Creek" is set for a full first season order. "House" creator David Shore will serve as showrunner, executive producing alongside Gilligan and Mark Johnson. Singer also directed Shore's "House" pilot.

Set in Battle Creek, Michigan, the series pairs two detectives with wildly disparate personalities. That's somewhat familiar territory for Gilligan, who launched his television career as a writer, director and producer on "The X-Files."

"Battle Creek" was initially pitched by Gilligan as a series in 2002, but did not move forward at that time. Now, Sony Pictures TV is set to produce alongside CBS TV Studios.
