Fox orders more ’Standoff,’ ’’Til Death’
Skeins are likely only Fox frosh to be extended
HOLLYWOOD — Fox is sticking by "’Til Death" and "Standoff," ordering additional episodes of both frosh skeins.
Net has given the go-ahead to nine more episodes of Brad Garrett laffer "Death" and six more segs of procedural drama "Standoff." Skeins are the first — and likely only — Fox frosh to be extended beyond their initial 13 seg commitments.
"Death," from Sony Pictures Television, has struggled against tough competish Thursdays at 8 p.m. Fox execs believe the show might yet attract an audience and are hoping the return of "American Idol" and "24" will give it a boost.
"Standoff," from 20th Century Fox TV, has also posted underwhelming Nielsen numbers. Still, skein has shown more of a pulse than Fox’s other frosh dramas, "Vanished" and "Justice."
Fox opted to order six episodes of "Standoff" rather than the usual nine because, with "Idol" and "24," net believes it won’t have a need for more segs, a spokesman said.
