Rumor has it Fox may be picking up Christian Slater’s half hour comedy “Breaking In”, which could mean the end for “Running Wilde”.
Deadline.com is reporting that Fox is in negotiations with Sony Pictures TV for a midseason order of the series. Even though the show’s pilot tested well in May, the network passed on the series for the fall. But, they did keep the project alive by ordering two scripts in June. Sony then extended the options on the cast, which means they should all be available if Fox decides to go ahead and order more episodes.
“Breaking In” is a single-camera workplace sitcom about a digital security firm. Insiders expect Fox to use the show as a replacement for the chronically underperforming “Running Wilde” in the 9:30PM ET slot on Tuesdays.
This will be the third series for Slater in as many years. He also starred in “My Own Worst Enemy” on NBC in 2008 and “The Forgotten” on ABC in 2009, both of which were canceled after only one season. Slater, who will play the lead role, signed on for “Breaking In” back in March.
