In a thoroughly unscientific study based on random stories told by traveling Burqueños, there’s a one in three chance that saying, “I’m from Albuquerque” will prompt some version of the response, “Oh, cool! Breaking Bad!” A now quintessential part of the New Mexico landscape, UNM is celebrating the myriad contributions brought on by the iconic TV show.
On Wednesday, April 4 from 2 to 4 p.m., UNM’s Department of Cinematic Arts will host Stew Lyons, a production manager on 62 episodes of “Breaking Bad.” He will screen and discuss the “Breaking Bad” episode "Ozymandias" (spoilers!), and talk about his long career in the TV industry, which includes work on “Better Call Saul” and “Taxi.”
This Cinematic Arts event is free and open to the public, and will be held in Room 2018 of the Center for the Arts on UNM's main campus.
