Showtime calls for more ‘Cell’

Nick likes 'Mikey'

Showtime has greenlit a second season of terrorist drama “Sleeper Cell,” starring Michael Ealy and Oded Fehr.

Pay cabler has ordered eight hours to air in 2007. “Sleeper” centers on the head of a Los Angeles-based Islamic terrorist cell (Fehr) and the Muslim undercover FBI agent who infiltrates it (Ealy). Production begins in Los Angeles this summer.

First edition aired as a 10-hour miniseries over the course of two weeks in December. Creators Ethan Reiff and Cyrus Voris will continue to exec produce.

Elsewhere, Sundance Channel has renewed “Iconoclasts,” agreeing to air six new episodes of the talk series from exec producer Robert Redford beginning Oct. 26. Grey Goose Entertainment, Conde Nast Media Group and @radical.media produce.

Guest pairings in season one included Samuel L. Jackson with Bill Russell, Brian Grazer with Sumner Redstone and Renee Zellweger with Christiane Amanpour.

Second-season guests will be announced in a few months.

Nicktoons and MTV Intl., meanwhile, have committed to a second season of “Kappa Mikey,” the first-ever global acquisition for MTV Networks. Anime series launched Feb. 25 on U.S. digital cabler Nicktoons. Twenty-six new episodes have been ordered, bringing the total order to 52.

First season is set to launch across all of Nickelodeon’s international channels, including Nick Asia, Nick U.K., Nick Spain, Nick France and Nick Europe. Animation Collective produces the show; company founder-CEO Larry Schwarz exec produces.
