'Sleeper' put to bed for 2007
EmptyShowtime has opted not to pick up another installment of the terrorist miniseries "Sleeper Cell" for this year. The limited series starring Michael Ealy and Oded Fehr premiered in 2005 to strong critical praise and returned for an even better-received Season 2 in December.
Although there will be no new "Sleeper" in 2007, Showtime has left the door open to reviving the franchise in the future. As of Friday night, cast members had not been informed of the network's decision.
