Had an email exchange the other day with Kearny native Tom Schnauz, a co-executive producer and writer for the new TV show “Better Call Saul.”
He was also the same for the wildly popular “Breaking Bad.”
Schnauz reports that he wrote the episode that will air Feb. 16 — and he directed the episode that will air seven weeks from today, March 30.“Better Call Saul” is a spin-off of “Breaking Bad,” and, like its original, was created by Vince Gilligan.
Its timeslot is 10 p.m. Monday nights on AMC.
Schnauz, who we featured in a story in May 2014, was born and Kearny and spent the first few years of his life here before moving to South Jersey with his family.
He went to Garfield School through the fourth-grade.
His aunt and uncle, Ann and Drew Taylor, still live in Kearny.
