The Lance Armstrong biopic was shot almost two and a half years ago, but The Program has taken its time getting to the big screen, for unknown reasons.

AMC has announced that they will be running every single episode of Breaking Bad in a marathon leading up to the series finale on September 29th. The event, titled “Countdown To Finale,” will begin on September 25th at 8pm with the first episode of the show from Season 1. The marathon will go non-stop until it hits the end of Season 4 late on Friday September 27th. The network will then air Season 5 (parts a and b) beginning on September 28 at 11pm, which will leakin directly to the 75-minute series finale on September 29th at 9pm.
That finale will be followed by a one-hour live edition of Talking Bad hosted by Chris Hardwick featuring series creator/show-runner Vince Gilligan, alongside stars Aaron Paul, Giancarlo Esposito, Jesse Plemmons, RJ Mitte, Jonathan Banks and for some weird reason, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. So if you’ve missed out on Breaking Bad, AMC is giving you a chance to catch the entire thing leading up to what will likely be ONE OF the most talked about television finale’s in history. They’re even giving you a break to sleep on Friday night, so whats your excuse? Full press release after the jump.

The recaps will spoil everything up through the current episode (S5E11 “Confessions”), but won’t spoil any future episodes or even scenes from the “Next Time” segment of the show.
