Premiering to close to 10 million viewers and fizzling to just over 3 million, the series was as good as dead ... until Fox picked up the actor's contracts for a possible Season 2.
According to Deadline, the actors are contracted until Nov. 15, making 'Breaking In' a possible mid-season contender. Fox is splitting the cost of keeping the actors under contract with producer Sony Pictures TV.
Also on the docket for possible mid-season debuts are the Rob Thomas comedy 'Little in Common' and the Mike O'Malley-fronted 'Family Album.' Both shows are undergoing recasts and additional shooting.
'Little in Common' is replacing child actor Paula Mashall and dropping Lombardo Boyar. 'Family Album' has extended the contracts of O'Malley, Rachael Harris and Rob Huebel.
Meanwhile, Ethan Hawke's 'Exit Strategy' is officially dead.
