Better Call Saul writer-producer Gordon Smith has closed an overall deal with the studio behind the acclaimed AMC series, Sony Pictures TV. Under the pact, he is currently a consulting producer on Sony TV’s WGN America drama series Outsiders and will return to Better Call Saul for the fully expected fourth season.
Smith is a home-grown talent. He started as a production and writers assistant on Sony TV’s Breaking Bad before landing a staff writer job on prequel Better Call Saul, where he quickly emerged as a key writer. Smith’s very first produced TV script, the 2015 Better Call Saul episode “Five-O,” earned Smith a writing Emmy nomination, with the “Chicanery“ 2016 episode landing him a second Emmy nomination this year. Smith also shared in Better Call Saul‘s 2016 and 2017 WGA nominations for best drama and best new series.
Smith is repped by ICM Partners.
