George Mastras, the producer of the critically acclaimed popular hit “Breaking Bad”, has just inked a two-year overall deal with HBO.
Masters worked on all five seasons of “Breaking Bad”, and was nominated twice for Emmys for his role behind the scenes, in 2010 and 2012; he also won two Writers’ Guild Awards for the series.
Although HBO has not yet released the titles of the projects that Mastras will be developing, he is currently in negotiations to get on board the 1970s rock and roll drama based on a concept by Mick Jagger. Martin Scorsese will direct and executive produce, while Terence Winter will write and executive produce.
In addition to his deal with HBO, Mastras has also lined up a feature film to pen, “90 Church” for Universal Pictures.
