BREAKING BAD (AMC) - The cable channel is reportedly mulling the spin-off series featuring Bob Odenkirk's sleazy but highly competent criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan and co-executive producer Peter Gould are spearheading the project, which may be formatted as a half-hour comedy.

CHICAGO FIRE (NBC) - Scott Eastwood (Texas Chainsaw 3D) and Tania Raymonde ("Switched at Birth") have both been cast in the show's proposed spin-off revolving around the Windy City's police department. They'll play police officers named Nicole and Jim, however no other details were given. Said characters will be introduced in the show's season finale, with Joe Chappelle directing from a script by Derek Haas and Michael Brandt. (Deadline.com)

She'll play Maddy ("the attractive waitress who is always attracted to assholes"), who works at Justin's bar. Heelan replaces Aly Michalka, a role which will be billed as a guest star due to her first position status on the aforementioned TBS pilot. Bianca Kajlich, Matthew Wilkas, Rick Glassman and Ron Funches also star. (Deadline.com)
