A drama series that was rescued by a cable channel after Fox passed on the pilot last year has received an order for a second season, Deadline.com reports.
The show is A&E’s "Breakout Kings.” The series could begin production later this year, with the sophomore season starting as early as the first quarter of 2012. The show stars Laz Alonso and Domenick Lombardozzi as U.S. Marshals who tap former fugitives to track down prisoners on the lam.
The series set a drama record for the network with viewers 18 to 49 years old when it debuted with 1.5 million viewers in the demographic in March, the story says.
