Bryan Singer to direct CBS series Battle Creek scripted by Vince Gilligan

Ready for the next series from BREAKING BAD creator Vince Gilligan? No, Im not talking about BETTER CALL SAUL; its actually a series for CBS called BATTLE CREEK.

The cop drama stars Dean Winters as Detective Russ Agnew and FBI agent Milton Chamberlain, "who have different worldviews but are teamed up to clean up the semi-mean streets of Battle Creek, MI." Gilligan and David Shore co-wrote the series. This is the second team up for Singer and Shore who worked together on HOUSE. Singer directed the pilot then took on the role of executive producer for the rest of the series.

Winters is fantastic in whatever role you put him in whether it's on 30 ROCK, OZ, RESCUE ME, or as Mayhem from the Allstate Insurance commercials.

Kal Penn, another HOUSE alum, has signed on to play Detective Fontanelle.

The series isnt something that Gilligan whipped up recently, in fact he wrote it a few years ago then after the success of BREAKING BAD I guess CBS wanted anything the scribe had his hands on.

Singer is currently finishing up his duties on X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST.

Doesn't sound too interesting...

But who am I to doubt Mr. Gilligan? I'll give any show he writes at lease one chance.

This sounds interesting and I like Bryan Singer, but the semi-mean streets of Battle Creek Michigan? The cereal town of Michigan. LOL! I used to live in Michigan in Grand Rapids, which is about an hour or less from Battle Creek. I visited Battle Creek a few times. It seemed like a sleepy little town to me. Maybe I'm mistaken, but it didn't seem that mean to me. I guess we will see.

Just what we need...ANOTHER cop show.

Just bring back Southland or go watch reruns of The Shield instead.
