“Breaking In” catches a break

Fox has ordered another two scripts for its Adam Goldberg/Seth Gordon laffer pilot “Breaking In.”

It’s not a series order, but it does trigger an extension of the contracts for cast members, who include Bret Harrison and Christian Slater.

The Happy Madison/Sony Pictures TV project — about a group of computer geniuses tasked with hacking into top-flight security systems in order to drum up business for a computer security company — had strong buzz during pilot season. The script orders are a sign that Fox is still interested in tweaking the code for this comedy prospect.
