ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The AMC hit television series “Breaking Bad” is thanking the city of Albuquerque for playing host through the filming of the show’s five seasons.
Producers of the show have purchased advertising on billboards around the city that read, “Thanks Albuquerque. We had great chemistry.” The billboards come as the show’s final season is set to begin Aug. 11.
“Breaking Bad,” which was filmed largely in Albuquerque, follows former high school teacher Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston, producing and selling methamphetamine with a former student, Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul.
The popular show has attracted tourists to city and businesses have been given tours of well-known sites from the series.
