Southland Near Deal To Return On TNT
“Southland” is close to landing at TNT.
The cable network began conversations with corporate sibling Warner Bros. TV, which produces the cop drama, shortly after “Southland” was abruptly canceled by NBC earlier this month.
Though a deal has not been completed, it now appears likely.
It will be interesting to see if new episodes (besides the 7 produced and aired last season on NBC and the 6 produced but not aired yet for this season) are produced as part of the deal. The economics of picking up the episodes that have already been produced may be quite different than those for producing new episodes.
