Walter White Dr House

Holy God, would this be an awesome buddy cop spin-off. It would be like an immovable object meeting another immovable object.

Now, there’s no way that Walter White and Dr. House would ever actually team up, but we’re getting the next best thing (which also sounds like the next best thing to hit television). According to Variety, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and House creator David Shore are executive producing a new CBS series called Battle Creek – a show about two detectives (who couldn’t be more different!) fighting crappy budgets and dire situations in order to sweep the streets of the show’s namesake city in Michigan.

Let’s see. CBS is a wildcard, but with antihero protagonists (assumption, but come on), an iconic American city and a deteriorating infrastructure, this fits the formula for prestige TV perfectly. No matter what, the potential created from these two master storytellers teaming up is through the bathtub-breaking roof.  Gilligan’s post-Breaking Bad project was always going to be cause for excitement, but this is answering the door to discover the pizza place accidentally made an extra pizza for you. Gilligan and Shore? That’s enough to make anyone feel better about Heisenberg’s reign of terror coming to an end.
