ABC plans more scripts for 'Murder'


ABC's drama "Women's Murder Club" is the latest freshman series to receive an order for additional scripts.

The network has picked up three more scripts from the mystery drama based on James Patterson's series of novels.

"Club," which stars Angie Harmon," got off to a great start in its Friday 9 p.m. time slot, but has lost some momentum in its subsequent airings. Last week, the 20th Century Fox TV-produced series drew 8.9 million viewers and a 1.9 rating/6 share among adults 18-49.

The script order for "Club" leaves comedy "Cavemen" as the only freshman ABC series without a pickup of additional scripts or episodes. The network has already handed out full-season pickups to dramas "Private Practice" and "Pushing Daisies" and comedy "Samantha Who?"
