‘Matrix’ unloaded: ABC cuts back series order

Net downsizes order to 16 segs rather than 22

ABC has cut back its order on homeland security drama “Threat Matrix.”

The Touchstone TV-Industry TV series has performed modestly in the toughest timeslot on television: Thursdays at 8. Net had originally picked up a full 22-episode season of “Matrix,” but has downsized the commitment to 16 segs.

Production continues on the final episodes of the show. “Threat Matrix” revolves around an elite division of the Department of Homeland Security, designed to stop terrorists before they have a chance to cause harm.

ABC has sliced orders on several of its series in recent weeks, reducing cop series “10-8” from 22 to 15 episodes, and cutting midseason comedy “The Big House” from 13 to six installments (Daily Variety, Dec. 9).
