Fox To Bring Back ‘Breaking In’ With 13-Episode Order, Buy New Adam Goldberg Comedy
Fox made it official today with a release announcing a 13-episode, second-season pickup of comedy Breaking In. It is tied to the network also buying a new 1980s autobiographical comedy project from series co-creator Adam F. Goldberg, which triggered a bidding war among the Big 4 broadcast networks.
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.
