Exclusive: As initially reported yesterday, TVWise has been hearing rumblings that Breaking Bad may be picked up by another UK broadcaster. While sources at Sony declined to comment which UK channels or outlets may pick up the series, one commented that perhaps Sony’s own UK TV channel, Sony Entertainment Television, was a likely scenario. Upon making contact with representatives of that channel, however, TVWise was told that despite the fact that Breaking Bad is a Sony owned title, they have no plans to air the series. Nor do they have any intention of airing the final two seasons of Damages or another series which is broadcast by Sony in over 125 countries across the world: eOne’s The Firm.
TVWise is continuing to investigate these early reports of a new UK broadcaster for Breaking Bad and will bring you more as we get it.
