Fox Trims ‘Lookinglass’ Order to 11 Episodes

In what has become a recurring trend, Fox has reduced the order for its midseason show “Lookinglass” from 13 episodes to 11.

Per a Fox insider, the decision was based on the network’s scheduling needs, given the upcoming lineup of new dramas including “The X-Files” and “Lucifer.”

Originally titled “The Frankenstein Code,” the show revolves around a morally corrupt cop who is given a second chance when he’s brought back from the dead.

Rand Ravich penned the script and is exec producing for 20th Century Fox TV with Howard Gordon and Michael Cuesta, who directed the pilot for the latest take on Mary Shelley’s enduring creature creation.

Rob Kazinsky plays the central character, named Jimmy Pritchard, who is torn between old temptations and a new sense of purpose. Dilshad Vadsaria, Adhir Kalyan, Tim DeKay and Ciara Bravo also star.

Also citing a glut of shows for midseason, NBC recently trimmed the episode orders for its upcoming shows “Hot and Bothered” and “Superstore.” Both those series initially received orders for 13 episodes, but were cut back to 11 as well.
