Experian Helps ‘Breaking Bad’ Fans Own a Piece of TV History
With fans of the hugely popular television show “Breaking Bad” still recovering from the series’ finale, which ran on Sunday, Experian Automotive may offer some relief.
The Schaumburg, Ill.-based firm said it has teamed with ScreenBid, a company that provides screen-used Hollywood memorabilia and collectibles, to provide complimentary AutoCheck vehicle history reports for consumers interested in bidding on vehicles from the Emmy-winning “Breaking Bad” television series.
With access to AutoCheck reports, bidders will have detailed insight into each vehicle’s history prior to its casting on the show, Experian said.
Many of the vehicles appearing in the Breaking Bad series are available now for auction until Oct. 7.
The vehicles include Skyler White’s 1991 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, Walter White’s 2004 Pontiac Aztek and Jesse Pinkman’s 1982 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, among others. To view a full list of the items up for auction, visit www.screenbid.com.
“For the last several years, ‘Breaking Bad’ has grabbed viewers’ attention every Sunday, and now as it comes to a close, many fans will want to get their hands on a piece of the show’s history,” said Dayna Bateman, Experian Automotive’s director of AutoCheck.
By having an AutoCheck report, Bateman said fans bidding on these vehicles “will be armed with additional information detailing the vehicle’s past, helping to set the expectations of their potential purchase.”
“Breaking Bad” made its debut in 2008 on the AMC network. The series told the story of Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with lung cancer. Unable to afford health insurance, White begins producing and selling methamphetamine in order to raise money to take care of his family after his death.
Over the course of the series, White’s life takes a turn for the worst when murder and other criminal activity take precedent over his original intentions of providing for his family.
