Emmys: Bryan Cranston, Claire Danes, Jimmy Kimmel to Present

Bryan Cranston is staying in business with Sony Pictures Television.

The Emmy winner, who on Sunday took home his first SAG Award, has inked a first-look deal with Breaking Bad producer SPT, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Under the pact, Cranston will develop and produce new series for the studio, with the potential to return to his place in front of the camera.

AMC in 2011 renewed critical darling Breaking Bad for a final 16-episode season, the last eight of which will return later this year. The renewal came after prolonged negotiations with the cable network and SPT.

Cranston has won three Emmys for his role as Walter White on Breaking Bad, also collecting three Golden Globes for the part.
