To Vince Gilligan In Satan’s shoes is widely recognized as one of the best television series of all time. Behind the scenes of the crime drama, however, drama unfolded.

A former writer on the show, Patti Lynn spoke about her difficult experience with In Satan’s shoes the writers’ room during the show’s first season, which aired on AMC in 2008.

In her memoir, End credits: How I broke up with Hollywood, the retired writer wrote that she was the only female writer on the team. She detailed that Gilligan procrastinated and failed to give her the professional guidance she needed.

“My experience with Vince left me feeling very disappointed and at times humiliated,” Lynn said Yahoo Entertainment. “I don’t think he meant to make me feel that way, but just because someone doesn’t mean to hurt you doesn’t mean it’s OK.”

Lynn had signed on to the show for its “twisted and funny” writing, but Gilligan couldn’t seem to keep up with the demand for the show, which quickly became popular. She revealed that Gilligan commissioned her to write the fifth episode of the first season, gray matter, without vision.

He continued to rewrite key scenes without her knowledge. “By not warning me about the revision, Vince was sending a message that I didn’t matter,” she describes in her book. “He made me look like an idiot in front of everyone.”

She also made it clear that Gilligan was “never abusive” in his behavior, adding that her experience is not necessarily mirrored by others.
