Emmy award winning Bryan Cranston heads the cast of Breaking Bad, portraying a middle-aged high school chemistry teacher who responds to a diagnosis of terminal cancer by turning to a life of crime to provide for his family’s future. Once a successful research chemist but now relegated to teaching in a New Mexico high school, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) is diagnosed with cancer and given only two years to live. Choosing to keep the bad news from his wife, Skyler (Anna Gunn), and their disabled teenage son, he vows to do whatever it takes to provide for his family’s future. Opportunity knocks when his DEA agent brother-in-law busts a local meth operation, inspiring Walt to start his own mobile drug lab and enlist a former student, Jesse (Aaron Paul), as his partner. When forced to kill a pair of vengeful drug dealers and then tell Skyler about his illness, he’s left with nothing to lose. Desperate to stay one step ahead of the law and his drug-dealing rivals, Walt undergoes an exhilarating transformation from struggling husband and father to ruthless competitor in the drug trade’s criminal underworld.
