How Much Do Breaking Bad Writers Make?

That’s a question. Do you know? I can’t find it anywhere. The Guardian has an excerpt of Brett Martin’s Difficult Men: From The Sopranos and The Wire to Mad Men and Breaking Bad which describes the the writers room for Breaking Bad and sent me on an internet quest to read everything about the writers room of Breaking Bad, which: Easy quest. Those writers talk to everyone. There’s a lot to know, and I now know a lot.

But I don’t know how much they get paid, a fact which knowing I think would be a fun addition to my fantasy of being a writer on a show that is over. So hopefully a Breaking Bad writer will email me her salary, dumdeedum, twiddles thumbs.

You know, I hope they get paid a lot. And also good mental health coverage. Complimentary massages. Discounted essential oils. A nap room. Breaking Bad writer: dreamiest dream job that also sounds incredibly stressful and also no longer exists.
