CBS has given a full season order to freshman drama “SWAT” and given freshman comedy “9JKL” an order for three additional episodes, the network announced Friday.
Inspired by the 1970s television series and the feature film of the same name, “SWAT” stars “Criminal Minds” alum Shemar Moore as Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson. He and his elite police unit are tasked with taking on some of the most dangerous criminals that Los Angeles has to offer. In addition to Moore, the series stars Stephanie Sigman, Alex Russell, Jay Harrington, Lina Esco, Kenny Johnson, Peter Onorati, and David Lim.
Aaron Thomas, Shawn Ryan, Justin Lin, Neal Moritz, Marney Hochman, Danielle Woodrow, and Pavun Shetty serve as executive producers. Sony Pictures Television produces in association with CBS Television Studios.
“9JKL” is a multi-camera sitcom based on the life of series star and executive producer Mark Feuerstein. In the series, Feuerstein plays an actor who moves home to New York after his divorce, living in an apartment sandwiched between his overbearing parents on one side and his brother, sister-in-law and their new baby on the other. The series also stars David Walton, Elliott Gould, Linda Lavin, Liza Lapira, Matt Murray, and Albert Tsai. Feuerstein executive produces along with his wife Dana Klein, Aaron Kaplan, Wendi Trilling, Dana Honor and Pamela Fryman. CBS Television Studios produces.
CBS previously gave full season orders to “Big Bang Theory” prequel “Young Sheldon” and the military drama “SEAL Team.” The network also bumped comedy series “Me, Myself, and I” off its schedule, essentially signalling that the series will be cancelled.
