      Peter Gould was born in New York City. He went on to study at Sarah Lawrence College and the University of Southern California, where he created his first short film, "Dirty Little Secrets." After graduating with a Master's degree in 1990, Gould tried his hand at feature film writing, making his debut with the action-comedy movie "Double Dragon" (1994) starring Robert Patrick, Scott Wolf and Alyssa Milano. After a second attempt at a big screen career with the romantic comedy "Meeting Daddy" (2000), which he both wrote and directed, Gould diverted his energies to television. His first major job on the small screen came with Vince Gilligan's critically acclaimed drama series "Breaking Bad" (AMC 2008-2013), on which he was a writer for all five seasons serving as executive story editor, producer, supervising producer, and co-executive producer. It was Gould who penned the well-regarded first season finale, titled "A No-Rough-Stuff-Type Deal." Gould also wrote the script for the TV movie "Too Big to Fail" (HBO 2011), a dramatization of the American financial crisis of 2008. Following the conclusion of "Breaking Bad," Gould and Gilligan co-created the spinoff series "Better Call Saul" (AMC 2015-), which chronicled the backstory of Bob Odenkirk's "Breaking Bad" character Jimmy McGill, a.k.a. Saul Goodman. More comic in tone than its predecessor, "Better Call Saul" earned healthy ratings, critical acclaim and an impressive list of awards and nominations including a coveted Peabody Award, 39 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, two WGA Awards, three Critics' Choice Television Awards, four Golden Globe nominations, six SAG nominations, three Producers Guild nominations, three AFI Awards for "TV Program of the Year," and both "Outstanding New Program" and "Achievement in Drama" from the Television Critics Association. Peter Gould lives in Los Angeles with his wife and daughter.
