Fans disappointed to hear that Bryan Cranston's Walter White and Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman aren't going to show up in Better Call Saul Season 1 will be happy to see that both characters are included in a new tie-in crossover comic book that is currently available on AMC's official website. This new story arrives before Better Call Saul debuts this Sunday, February 8 with Uno.
The action seen in the comic, titled Client Development, takes place during the Breaking Bad Season 2 episode 4 Days Out, where it is continued.

When Better Call Saul premieres this weekend, we'll actually get to see Goodman before his fateful first meeting with Heisenberg. The series is set six years before their two lives became intertwined. When we first meet the man who will become Saul Goodman, he is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is "fixer" Mike Ehrmantraut. The series will track Jimmy's transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts "criminal" in "Criminal lawyer."
