Rhea Seehorn to star in Vince Gilligan’s new series

The folks at Apple TV+ were extremely excited about the new idea, since Gilligan’s previous series have made history.

What Vince Gilligan had to say about his new project

“After 15 years, I thought it was time to take a break from portraying seemingly villains… and who’s more heroic than the brilliant Rhea Seehorn? It’s time for her to have her own show, and I feel lucky to have the opportunity to work on it with her,” Gilligan said.

“And what a beautiful symmetry… to be reunited with Zack Van Amburg, Jamie Erlicht and Chris Parnell! Jamie and Zack were the first two people to tell yes to Breaking Bad years ago. They’ve built a great team at Apple, and my wonderful longtime partners at Sony Pictures Television will be there as well. I’m very excited,” he added, according to the source.

As usual, Gilligan did not divulge details about the premise of his upcoming series. What is known, however, is that this time the focus will no longer be on drug trafficking, as it was with Better Call Saul or Breaking Bad.

According to Variety, HBO is accused of providing Facebook with customer lists, allowing the social network to correlate viewing habits with their profiles. He also claims that HBO knows that Facebook can combine data because HBO is a major advertiser on Facebook, and Facebook can then use that information to redirect ads to its subscribers. Because HBO never received proper customer consent to do so, it is alleged that it violated the 1988 Video Privacy Protection Act (VPPA), according to the lawsuit. HBO, like other sites, discloses to users that it (and its partners) use cookies to deliver personalized ads. However, VPPA requires separate consent from users to share their video viewing history. "A standard privacy policy will not be enough," he said. Other streaming providers have been hit by similar situations, and TikTok recently agreed to pay $ 92 million for a (partial) violation of the VPPA. In another case, however, a judge ruled in 2015 that Hulu did not knowingly share Facebook data, which could determine a person's viewing history. The law firm involved in the HBO lawsuit previously won a $ 50 million deal with Hearst after alleging that it violated Michigan's privacy laws by selling subscriber data.

As one of the best-known television creators of his generation, Gilligan executive produced AMC’s Breaking Bad, which won two Emmys for Best Drama Series, and co-produced the spinoff Better Call Saul, which has so far “snagged” 46 Emmy nominations, seven of them this year alone, including Best Drama Series. Gilligan has also received multiple Emmy nominations for The X-Files.
