TNT Picks Up Southland; Sets January 12, 2010 Premiere

southland-110209TNT is adding another cop drama to its lineup.  The network announced this morning that they have purchased the L.A. cop drama Southland – recently canceled by NBC – from Warner Bros. Television.  The pick-up had been rumored for some time but the agreement is now official.  TNT purchased both the seven episodes leftover from last seasons well as the six episodes that were shot over the past few months.

The show will air Tuesday’s at 10:00 p.m., which interestingly enough, is the night that NBC gets its highest ratings from the struggling weekly primetime talk show The Jay Leno Show.  The premiere date is set for January 12th: “This is a great win for fans of ‘Southland’ and a perfect opportunity to introduce the series to new viewers,” said Turner president Steve Koonin.

    I watched this premiere. It was last year’s premiere. Whatup TNT? If it’s not new it’s not a “premiere.”

    • Don’t worry Trilby. When TNT picked up the rights to the show, they ordered both the seven episodes that had already aired on NBC PLUS an additional six episodes that had been produced but NBC never aired.

      So TNT is basically running the show as if its an original series. They’ll air all 13 episodes, in order, so the first seven episodes would have already been shown to viewers who watched the show on NBC, but the next six after that will be fresh episodes.
