'Southland' May Be Picked Up by TNT


There is a chance that 'Southland' will be aired on TNT as talks between the network and Warner Bros. TV reportedly have been made.

There is rumor swirling on the web that "Southland", the cop drama which was canceled by NBC last week, will be coming back, only this time on TNT. Talks between its production company Warner Bros. TV and TNT reportedly were advancing.

The TV series following the lives of Los Angeles police officers has filmed six episodes for its second season and was supposed to premiere on October 13 before then being pulled off by NBC. The network claimed they aren't "financially viable" to keep the show on the air and so decided to place "Dateline" on its time slot.

"I'm disappointed that NBC no longer has the time periods available to support the kind of critically-acclaimed series that was for so many years, a hallmark of their success," its producer John Wells said. "We remain extremely proud of 'Southland' and are actively looking for another home for the series."

Following the abrupt cancellation, John indeed has shopped around "Southland" in hopes of finding a network which is willing to air the show and perhaps pick up the drama for another season. TNT becomes its possible new home for the show because the network shares a corporate parent with Warner Bros. TV.

No official statement has been made concerning the rumor. TNT themselves said in a statement, "We continually look at all programming opportunities that fit our portfolio of brands."
