FOX Brings 'Breaking In' Back With 13-Episode Midseason Order
Reported by Outsiders - 11:01 PM 2011.08.24
It would appear that FOX comedy "Breaking In" has more lives than a cat because FOX is bringing it back after being canceled twice. The comedy starring Christian Slater and Bret Harrison has a 13-episode midseason order in a complex deal with series producer Sony Pictures TV, which is still being finalized. The entire cast is expected to come back, including Odette Annable, who recently joined House as a new regular with a deal that includes provisions allowing her to also appear on "Breaking In."
FOX has renewed the comedy series BREAKING IN for a 13-episode second season to return to the network's schedule in 2012, it was announced today by Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.
"BREAKING IN is a creatively vibrant and wildly adventurous comedy," said Reilly. "We are looking forward to bringing it back for a second season and continuing our relationship with this incredibly talented cast and these fantastic creators - Adam Goldberg and Seth Gordon. We can't wait to see where they take these characters next year."
Created by Adam F. Goldberg ("Fanboys") and Seth Gordon ("Horrible Bosses"), BREAKING IN is a workplace comedy about a high-tech security firm that takes extreme - and often questionable - measures to sell their protection services. The series centers on a team of uniquely skilled oddball geniuses hand-picked to work for OZ, a manipulative mastermind played by Christian Slater. The series also stars Bret Harrison, Alphonso McAuley and Odette Annable.
BREAKING IN is produced by Happy Madison Productions, Adam F. Goldberg Productions and Sethsquatch, Inc. in association with Sony Pictures Television. Goldberg, Gordon and Doug Robinson ("Rules of Engagement") serve as executive producers.
