Ahead of Emmys, Aaron Paul Signs Production Deal with Sony Pictures TV

As Aaron Paul prepares to head to the Emmys - no doubt to collect several awards for AMC's meth-drama Breaking Bad - Sony Pictures TV have entered into an agreement with the actor to develop and produce new projects.

Breaking BadThe future is bright for Aaron Paul

Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman so wonderfully in Breaking Bad, has signed a first-look deal with the studio to shepherd projects through his newly launched production company, Lucid Road Productions. It was probably the obvious next step for the actor, who recently got into producing with Netflix's animated series BoJack Horseman.

Paul is nominated for his fifth Emmy nomination. He has won twice in the past and is again considered the top contender to scoop the honour for Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

As Deadline points out, Sony TV is obviously keen to keep all the major Breaking Bad players under one roof. Creator Vince Gillian is tied into a deal with the studio and Bryan Cranston also has a first-look pact. With production already Better Call Saul already started (although Cranston and Paul will play no direct roles), the whole Breaking Bad 'brand' looks as strong as ever and will only grow.

Overall, Breaking Bad is nominated for seven awards in six Emmy categories, including best drama series. Whether it will have enough to beat hot favourite True Detective remains to be seen, though the future nevertheless looks incredibly bright for Aaron Paul.

The actor is repped by UTA and Loch Powell at Leverage Management.
