ABC picks up more 'Eli Stone'

Network orders four scripts ahead of season premiere

ABC has ordered four more scripts of "Eli Stone," sources said.

The drama returns for its second season premiere Tuesday night. ABC's preemptive order from ABC Studios suggests the network is pleased with the creative direction of the show's new season.

"Stone" is about a lawyer who becomes a modern-day prophet after he starts having precognitive visions. The series was a midseason replacement last season. Since "Stone" has only been off the air for six months -- instead of 10 like several returning freshman dramas interrupted by the writers strike -- there's some hope that the series will feel comparatively fresh to viewers.
