'Breaking In' Gets Mid-Season Order: Christian Slater Comedy Revived

After all this comedy's drama, "Breaking In" has snuck back onto the television schedule once again.

The Christian Slater-starring comedy about a group of young employees working at a digital security firm is getting a mid-season order of 13 episodes from FOX, Deadline reports. It was a late-season addition to the schedule last season and, despite testing well, performed poorly in the ratings. It was assumed that the show was dead after airing seven episodes, which almost didn't run themselves after being passed over the season before.

This marks, finally, a semi-success for Slater's recent television career; his past two shows, "The Forgotten" and "My Own Worst Enemy," were cancelled after one season. It also comes amidst a personal renaissance for the actor, who has been sober for half a decade now; he's involved in 16 movies over this year and next, according to IMDB.com. That includes the drama "Sofia" with Donald Sutherland, "Sacrifice" with Cuba Gooding Jr., "Guns, Girls and Gambling," a crime thriller with Gary Oldman and "Bullet to the Head" with Sylvester Stallone.
