FX has greenlit two more original drama series for 2010: “Terriers” and “Lights Out”.
Shawn Ryan (“The Shield”) is behind “Terriers,” about two buddies who start a detective agency. The dramedy is from Fox 21 and stars Donal Logue. Ted Griffin (“Ocean’s Eleven”) created the show.
Ryan is also currently the executive producer and creative head of FOX’s Lie to Me, he signed on last season as a temporary gig, and then wound up taking on a bigger role.
Ryan was also previously involved with The Unit which CBS didn’t renew after last season (though the ads for the season 5 DVD that have run on our site look really cool!)
“Lights Out” sounds a bit like “Rocky 7” -a boxing champ tries to adjust to retirement and family bonding.
