John Wells: Two nets in 'Southland' mix
TNT interested in taking cop drama
By Nellie Andreeva

Keep up the faith, "Southland" fans.

John Wells, executive producer of the recently canceled NBC drama,
called actors on the show late last week to tell them he is in talks
with two networks about the cop series finding a new home.

Wells reportedly didn't identify the networks, but TNT, corporate
sibling of show producer Warner Bros. TV, has been interested in
acquiring the series and is considered the most likely contender to
pick it up.

Even if a deal is to be made to go to another network, there are
indications that "Southland," whose production was shut down by NBC
this month, won't resume filming anytime soon. The potential buyer
would run the seven episodes from the first season and the six
produced episodes from the second as a 13-episode freshman cycle.
I'll f'ing *burn* TNT to the ground if they pick this up in lieu of
renewing "Dark Blue"...

Hey, are TNT and TBS in the same building?
Can't take the chance that you might have to live without your "House
of Payne" and "Meet The Browns", huh?...
