Pilots: CBS Adds David Shore/Bryan Cranston Drama, James Patterson Riff

8 hours ago

CBS on Friday night ordered another two drama pilots, each with interesting pedigrees.

Having already made a production commitment to the project, CBS officially greenlit a pilot for Sneaky Pete, which is being written and exec-produced by House creator David Shore and Breaking Bad Emmy winner Bryan Cranston.

The series follows a thirtysomething con man who upon leaving prison assumes the identity of a cellmate and then hides from debtors by toiling for his “new” family’s bail bond business. There, he uses his prowess to take down bad guys worse than himself, all while his pretty “cousin” grows suspicious of his motives. »

Ground Floor Cancelled at TBS

9 hours ago

Ground Floor is taking the stairway to heaven.

TBS has cancelled Bill Lawrence’s underrated workplace sitcom, TVLine has learned exclusively.

The show’s Feb. 10 Season 2 closer will now serve as its series finale.

Interestingly, Ground Floor — which stars Skylar Astin and Briga Heelan — opened its sophomore run in December with 1.4 million total viewers and a 0.6 demo rating, and at last count pulled 1.7 mil/0.7 (leading into Cougar Town’s 1 mil/0.5). Season 1 averaged 1.8 million weekly viewers, with Live+& DVR playback factored in. (Translation: Huh?)

Update: A TBS rep maintains that Ground Floor has not been officially cancelled.

And although the exes initially resisted temptation, instead opting to pass the time with flirty conversation, they eventually caved, going »
