The American TV industry has borrowed liberally from other countries, adapting Ugly Betty from Colombia, The Killing from Denmark, Homeland from Israel, and The Office from the U.K., to name just a few examples. In turn, other nations have taken American shows like Everybody Loves Raymond and How I Met Your Mother and made them their own. Now one of our best homegrown series, Breaking Bad, is also heading to a foreign land.
Sony TV has given the go-ahead to Univision’s Spanish-language remake of Breaking Bad, titled Metastasis. Diego Trujillo will lead the cast as a meek chemistry teacher turned ruthless meth cook named — what else — Walter Blanco. More info after the jump.
