Marion and Jeff's house

TV show Better Call Saul (2015)
Recognized by Jeff (Pat Healy), a former Albuquerque resident, Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) decides to go ahead and maintain his cover in Nebraska. He then gets close to Marion (Carol Burnett), Jeff's mother, and sets up a most tortuous plan. Marion's house is actually located in Albuquerque.

“I typed in “con man” and “Albuquerque,” and up you popped, big as day.”

Marion (Carol Burnett)

Between past and present

Telling both the past and present of Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), Better Call Saul features black and white passages. The latter are supposed to tell the story of the main character’s life after the events in Breaking Bad. It is during these black and white sequences that Saul Goodman meets Marion (Carol Burnett), an elderly woman from Nebraska, with whom he sympathizes. He is then brought to visit her often, in a small house that the producers have also found in a residential suburb of Albuquerque.

Caroll Burnett, real star in the cast of Better Call Saul

If the story of Better Call Saul takes place in several states, the showrunners Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan have indeed chosen to shoot in New Mexico, taking advantage of the largesse of a city more than ever happy to roll out the red carpet. Marion’s house appears in several episodes, including the penultimate one, at the end of which Saul Goodman is unmasked by the old lady. However, as is often the case, the interior scenes were shot in the studio, always in Albuquerque, where the production is based.

Carol Burnett, the interpreter of Marion, is a real star in the United States, where she presented for seven years, from 1967 to 1978, the Carol Burnett Show on television. She has won the Golden Globes for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy Series five times.
