A collection of props from hit U.S. TV drama Breaking Bad are set to go on display at a New York museum as part of celebration to mark the programme's upcoming series finale. The Museum of the Moving Image exhibit will feature costumes worn by Bryan Cranston's terminally-ill chemistry teacher-turned-meth manufacturer, as well as a video montage of behind-the-scenes clips and items from the set. The display, entitled From Mr. Chips to Scarface: Walter White's Transformation in Breaking Bad, will explore the evolution of Cranston's character. It will make its debut on 26 July (13). Museum curator Barbara Miller says, "We are thrilled to present material from this extraordinary and compelling television series... The exhibit explores how Breaking Bad's filmmakers used a variety of visual cues to convey Walter White's transformation, including shifts in costume colour palette and a series of symbolic props, and features many of the key costumes and props that helped communicate White's character development over the course of the series." The Breaking Bad series finale is set to air in America on 29 September (13).
