Fox Orders 'Breaking In' For Midseason

Fox officially picked up Christian Slater's comedy Breaking In for midseason.

The Sony Pictures TV series is a likely companion for freshman Raising Hope, since current Tuesday partner Running Wilde has been stumbling in the ratings. Though not technically cancelled, Fox has declined to pick up a full season of Wilde so far and its tough to see that decision changing.

Breaking In stars Slater and Brett Harrison (Reaper) in a concept that's been described as "The A-Team meets Leverage" -- about a group of brillaint security experts.

You'll recall that Slater's last TV show ABC's short-lived The Forgotten, which was right after NBC's short-lived My Own Worst Enemy, perhaps he'll click with viewers better in a comedy vehicle.
