First Breaking Bad Fan Fest Debuts in New Mexico

Festival to feature cast members, contests, VIP meet and greet
Albuquerque, NM- Thousands of Breaking Bad fans will be commemorating AMC's hit television series at this year's inaugural two-day Breaking Bad Fan Fest beginning Nov. 7 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the series' filming location.

The Breaking Bad Fan Fest will leverage the same successful backdrop as the series with RV tours of filming locations throughout Albuquerque. The Fan Fest will include a panel discussion with featured cast members and crew, a VIP meet and greet, costume contest, trivia contest, go kart racing and other activities. The fan fest event organized by actual fans of the series, Dr. Jennie Rexer and Miguel S. Jaramillo, will inaugurate in 2014 and continue as an annual event in Albuquerque.

"We're thrilled to host Breaking Bad fans from around the world who share the same passion for the show as we do," said Rexer, co-founder of the Breaking Bad Fan Fest. Jaramillo, co-founder, adds "Being in Albuquerque gives us the perfect opportunity to host fans wanting to experience the series first hand right from the same locations where the actors stood and filmed - nothing comes closer."

Rexer and Jaramillo founded the New Mexico-based company, 99.1 % Productions, to produce the two-day event. The Breaking Bad Fan Fest will be the first of its kind in the world after the series' record breaking finale with more than 10.3 million views in September 2013.
