Naomi Bishop is a senior investment banker who works in the male dominated world of Wall St Finance, and who quickly becomes involved in a world of corruption and scandal. In 'Equity', Bishop misses out on an opportunity for a promotion in her company when it becomes apparent that she miscalculated the IPO's (Initial Public Offering) value and didn't handle the going public news effectively, as a result she needs to prove herself once again. This leads to her courting the promising newcomers in order to get her foot in the door and spot a potential business opportunity.

David Tennant will attempt to solve the mystery again, this time for US audiences.
David Tennant is set to solve a familiar mystery in Fox’s ‘Gracepoint’ tonight. We say familiar because ‘Gracepoint’ is a remake ‘Broadchurch’, the BBC drama that Tennant starred in just last year. So what have US audiences got to look forward to tonight on Fox?
It's not 'Broadchurch', it's 'Gracepoint'
Last year ‘Broadchurch’ was a critical and ratings success in the UK, so it’s no surprise that an American network wanted their own version. What might be surprising is the decision to cast David Tennant, the star of the original, in the role again. But hey, this man was once ‘Doctor Who’ so we’re never going to complain about him being on our screens.
'Breaking Bad' saw off the challenge of 'True Detective' at the Emmys.
Breaking Bad's explosive fifth and final season dominated the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, picking up most of the major drama prizes ahead of 'Game of Thrones' and 'True Detective'. AMC's meth-drama took five Emmys in total, with Aaron Paul taking home best supporting actor for the third time.

"My god, Breaking Bad - it has changed my life and I am standing up here because of one man and that is Vince Gilligan [show creator]," Paul said, accepting his prize (he also triumphed in 2010 and 2012). "Thank you. I miss him. I love him. The best cast and crew I've ever worked with and for. There's not a single day that goes by that I don't miss running to work."

'Gracepoint' is set to drift away from the 'Broadchurch' narrative and will almost certainly feature a different ending.
Despite casting the same lead actor, those behind 'Gracepoint' - a remake of the acclaimed BBC crime drama 'Broadchurch' - insist the show will have differing plotlines to the original, as well as new characters.
Scottish actor David Tennant, who played troubled DI Alex Hardy so masterfully in Broadchurch returns for the U.S remake, alongside Breaking Bad's Anna Gunn. However, Fox executive producers Dan Futterman and Anya Epstein say they are keen to veer from the original narrative despite wanting to keep the overall aesthetics of Broadchurch intact.

A renewal and a scheduling confirmation for 2015.
BBC America kicked off its Television Critics Association press tour panel on Wednesday (9th July) afternoon with a double whammy of announcements: Orphan Back has been renewed for a third season and the second season of Broadchurch will air on BBC America.
The broadcaster revealed that the second Orphan Black season "became the first ever ad-supported drama series to double its ratings from season one to season two in A25-54 and 18-49 in Live+7," according to HitFix.
The season two finale of the sci-fi drama last month drew 1.376 million viewers in Live+7; a high point for the entire series.
Breaking Bad is over, so what is to become of the show's stars?
We've seen the finale and mourned the loss of one of the most popular series of our time; we have Better Call Saul to look forward to but what is in store for Breaking Bad's stars?

Aaron Paul joked that he is desperate for employment, a day after the finale of Breaking Bad aired. The 34-year-old actor was walking along Sunset Strip in Los Angeles when he was caught by one of TMZ's reporters. When asked by the photographer if he was relieved that the show was over, in order to remove the pressure of being constantly asked by fans for insider details, Paul said he wasn't relieved as he now has to hunt for a job.

It’s difficult to know exactly how to start this recap/review. As we reach the end of a show rightly categorized next The Wire and The Sopranos in terms of quality, a strange aura of serenity settles like the snow in New Hampshire.

Spoilers spoilers spoilers. Heavy spoilers. This will ruin the show for you... (spoilers)
So you’ve come this far, either by the relentless pressure applied by your friend who wouldn’t stop telling you to watch it, or by finding yourself understandably hooked, somewhere towards the end of the first season. Breaking Bad season five has three episodes left, and after To’hajiilee, Walter White looks set for some tough decisions.
“In these final four episodes, a great many chickens will come home to roost for Walt,” said the show’s creator, Vince Gilligan. To recap: Jesse and Hank dreamed up a ruse to lure Walter to his precious cash: a vital piece of evidence if Hank were to ‘bring him down’. Of course, the lingering threat of Tod and his uncle’s gang turning up was always in the back of our minds during the episode's tense finale.
Stars Bob Odenkirk (who plays Saul Goodman) and Dean Norris (Hank Schrader) have given their take on the show's finale.
Breaking Bad returned for it's final ever run on August 11, with the conclusion for the edge-of-your-seat drama series drawing ever closer for it's fanatical audience. Even before season 5 began earlier this year though, people have been speculating on how Bryan Cranston's Walter White might see out the series - standing triumphantly as Heisenberg or put away for good (or worse) for his crimes. If the word from the show's cast is anything to go by, the ending sure won't disappoint that's for sure.

Speaking to the UK's Telegraph, seedy lawyer Saul Goodman actor Bob Odenkirk gave his views on the ending of the show. In his interview, the actor discussed the explosive finale as being distinctly Breaking Bad, with unexpected turns and surprises that will only leave viewers wanting more. He admitted that Walt, and every other character for that matter, will atone for their sins and no bad deed, or good deed, will go without notice by series creator Vince Gilligan.

Breaking Bad's tenth episode of its fifth and final season aired last night (18th August). Focussing on the dynamics of the White-Schrader family, we saw Skyler remain convinced her husband will get away with his crimes (who knows, maybe he will) despite protestations from Hank and Marie.
In the second half of the final season of Breaking Bad, the writers are holding no bars in destroying the fictional lives of their characters. In last night's episode 'Buried', Walter White's (Bryan Cranston) family are certainly not united. We've seen the White's and the Schrader's ups and downs over the years and the show's five seasons: from family barbeques to Hank Schrader's (Dean Norris) realisation that his brother-in-law is a prolific meth dealer.

The episode opens with Walt attempting to reach Skyler (Anna Gunn), only to realise that Hank has rung first. He assumes Hank will inform Skyler about his meth cooking activities, but we see Hank and Skylar meeting up to discuss Walt. Skyler refuses to leave Walt, despite Hank's pleadings, even dragging his wife into the mix and promising "your best interest and mine are the same."
Did you ask Aaron a question last night?
Aaron Paul hit the jackpot with Breaking Bad. His character, Jesse Pinkman, often provides moments of much needed comic relief while the show takes dark routes. He participated in a ask me anything session on Reddit last night, and fans were waiting in the wings to ask their on-screen hero… anything.
Breaking Bad returned on Sunday (Aug 11) and did so with a bang, getting straight to the cliff-hanger left at the end of the mid-season finale. In ‘Blood Money’, Aaron paints a sombre, disdainful Jesse, mistrusting of Walter – the man he put so much effort and trust into. With only seven episodes left, it’ll be fascinating to see where the various characters go, especially after Walt and Hank’s confrontation.

You've never seen a television drama like Breaking Bad, cable network AMC's second foray into original drama (following the groundbreaking Mad Men). And while the pitch-black landscape of southwestern meth manufacturing will never have the glitzy appeal of Mad Men's 1960s Madison Avenue, Breaking Bad still demonstrates the promise of cable's new model. Aiming for a niche audience has taken all the riskiness out of "creative risks," and filmed entertainment is the richer for it.
