'Unforgettable': CBS May Revive Poppy Montgomery Drama
The network is in talks to bring back the series about a New York detective with a truncated season for summer 2013.
Unforgettable may join the rare category of TV series that have been brought back from the dead.
CBS is in talks to revive the Poppy Montgomery drama with a truncated 13-episode order for summer 2013, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The series about a female detective (Montgomery) who remembers everything except the day her sister was murdered was canceled in May to clear space on the network's schedule for the four drama pilots the network ordered to series.
From Ed Redlich, Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman, the drama had been a steady performer at 10 p.m. Tuesdays, averaging 12.1 million viewers and a 2.5 rating in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic.
The series was one of two at the time (including CBS' A Gifted Man) that hailed from EPs Beverly and Timberman to end their run in May. However, the duo's Sherlock Holmes drama Elementary was one of the network's hourlong efforts to land a series order.
Unforgettable, which co-stars Dylan Walsh (Nip/Tuck), would join Fox's Christian Slater workplace comedy Breaking In, which the network brought back from the dead after canceling it in May 2011. Breaking In was canceled (for a third time) in May after it failed to attract viewers in its prime post-New Girl slot on Tuesdays, drawing around 3 million viewers.
Breaking In hailed from Sony Pictures Television, who with CBS Television Studios, produced Unforgettable.
