A&E Gives ‘Cleaner’ a Go

Feb 11, 2008  •  Post A Comment

With the Writers Guild of America strike expected to end this week, A&E has greenlighted its first scripted drama series in more than six years.
The new series is “Cleaner,” one of three pilots A&E had completed before the strike.
“Cleaner” stars Benjamin Bratt as an “interventionist” who helps people get over their addictions.
“We’re excited to launch our first original scripted drama series in some time with ‘Cleaner,’” said Bob DeBitetto, executive VP and general manager of A&E Network. “With an exceptional lead character, strong ensemble and superb emotional storytelling, the series will be a great companion to A&E’s current programming of hit real-life series and popular off-net dramas.”
A&E plans to begin production shortly on “Cleaner” for a summer premiere.
The network also plans to move forward with production of additional scripted dramas.
“Cleaner” is produced by CBS Paramount Network Television. It was created by Jonathan Prince and Robert Munic. The latter will serve as executive producer, along with Jay Silverman and Warren Boyd.

  1. I heard that Amy Price Francis is in this show. She was fantastic in Californication.
