Breaking In

This past spring saw the premiere and hasty cancellation of the Christian Slater-starring comedy Breaking In. The show aired on FOX and despite critical praise, it failed to maintain most of its audience once it moved to a new time slot and losing its American Idol lead in. This is all after the show’s rocky production history where FOX nixed the program after the pilot was shot, but then revived it for its seven episode spring run. Many analysts have stated that the show wasn’t given a fair chance on the network with its extremely short run and time slot stumbling. That ‘s why the impossible might just be happening as FOX is in the tail end of a deal reviving the show for a 13-episode second season. In order to achieve this renewal according to Deadline, FOX “joined Sony TV in shouldering the cost for extending the cast’s options and then put Breaking In on the list of contenders for its 2-hour midseason comedy block.”

After weeks of negotiations between FOX and Universal over the production costs of hit medical drama House M.D., the show has finally been renewed for an eighth season on the network. The issue of the negotiations stemmed from the fact that FOX wanted to drastically cut the cost of producing the show since the recent drop in ratings from last season. Series stars Hugh Laurie, Omar Epps, Olivia Wilde, and Robert Sean Leonard are all signed on to return, but co-stars Lisa Edelstein, Jesse Spencer, and Peter Jacobson are all still in the middle of negotiations. However, their returns are almost a guarantee. In addition to the renewal of House, the network also picked up three pilots to series including the comedy I Hate My Teenage Daughter starring Jaime Pressly, another comedy in the form of The New Girl starring Zooey Deschanel, Bones (which also saw a renewal a week ago) spin-off Finder which had a back door pilot on the hit crime-drama a couple weeks ago, and the new J.J. Abrams series Alcatraz.
