With Breaking Bad fresh off multiple Emmy wins, Vince Gilligan is back in our heads again. I’d almost forgotten he’s working on a second new series (the first being BB’s prequelish Better Call Saul), CBS’s Battle Creek. I’m not going to lie, the CBS part gives me great pause, but since it’s Gilligan, many of us will at least give it a chance. The series will center on two men; FBI agent Milton Chamberlain (Josh Duhamel), described as “a handsome, charismatic FBI agent with unlimited resources,” and detective Russ Agnew (Dean Winters), a gruff, small town cop. The pair are thrown together when Chamberlain sets up shop at Agnew’s station.

So, an odd couple cop drama? Sounds like it needs some quirking up…enter resident quirkster extraordinaire: Patton Oswalt. The part-time Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Justified actor will guest as Mayor Scooter Hardy, described as an “unorthadox” (duh!) politician. Um, yeah…this is sounding very CBS-ish, but Gilligan has at least earned a leap of faith — right?


Cindy Davis, (Twitter) remains skeptical.
