Actor Michael Rosenbaum, who recurs on Fox’s upcoming comedy series Breaking In, is expanding his relationship with the network. The former Smallville star, who has been  pursuing writing for the past couple of years, has received a blind script commitment from the network in a joint deal with 20th Century Fox TV. A year ago, Rosenbaum set up single-camera comedy Saved by Zeroes at Syfy. The project, from  Sony and Happy Madison, the companies behind Breaking In, was  created by and written by Rosenbaum, who was also attached to star. Based on his personal experiences, it revolved around two friends (Rosenbaum, Jonathan Silverman), former actors on a science fiction show. Rosenbaum next reprises his breakout role as Lex Luthor in the series finale of Smallville in May.
