A New York-based symphony House announced plans Monday to develop an opera based on an episode of Breaking Bad.

One World Symphony said the opera would hinge on “Ozymandias,” the third-to-last episode of the hit show. Artistic director Sung Jin Hong wrote on the opera’s website that he still wants suggestions about content and approach. “At this very moment, the details of Breaking Bad — Ozymandias (2014) may not be confirmed, but I hope to explore the question that the drama obsessively and hauntingly asked: ‘are we all breaking bad?'”
