TNT Renews "Southland" For Third Season

TNT

NBC's "Southland" cop drama debuted last year, but was canceled before its second season began. Now the first season is available on DVD.

TNT will air another season of "Southland," the Los Angeles-based police drama that the cable network picked up when it was dumped by NBC.

The network said Monday it has ordered 10 new episodes of the series, to air starting next January. It's produced by John Wells, who has "ER" and "The West Wing" on his resume.

NBC dropped the series just before it was to begin a second season in what appeared to be a cost-cutting move. But TNT resurrected it, making six new episodes that have aired this spring.

"Southland" is working on a model common to cable television, where a "season" of new episodes is shorter than that made by broadcast networks. It focuses on the life of police officers and gang members, often shot on location in Los Angeles.
