On the final day of the 2010 Virginia Film Festival, an episode of the AMC program Breaking Bad was screened, and the producers of the program took questions in a panel discusison. Show creator and writer Vince Gilligan and executive producer Mark Johnson provided live commentary of the show, which changed the rules of television drama.

When high school chemistry teacher Walter White (Bryan Cranston) is diagnosed with lung cancer and told his days are numbered, he realizes his responsibility to support his family after he is gone. Desperate for money to leave behind, he puts his chemistry skills to use… cooking meth. The show explores the extremes ordinary people are capable of in desperate situations. Cranston has won the Best Actor Emmy three years in a row for his portrayal of Walter White.
