Better Call Saul Wins Writers Guild Award for Best Episodic Drama

The 68th annual Writers Guild Awards were handed out Saturday, and AMC’s Better Call Saul was named television’s Best Episodic Drama for the series’ premiere episode, “Uno,” written by creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould. The show faced stiff competition in the category, edging out AMC’s own Mad Men along with HBO’s Game of Thrones and The Leftovers, CBS’s The Good Wife, and Netflix’s Narcos for the win. The award comes just in time for the Better Call Saul Season 2 premiere, this Monday at 10/9c on AMC.
