TNT renews legal comedy Franklin & Bash


US cable network TNT has renewed legal comedy Franklin & Bash for a third season.

The series, which stars Breckin Meyer and Mark-Paul Gosselaar, averaged 4.3 million viewers in its second season, a 10% increase over its first series.

The show is produced by Four Sycamore Productions, Left Coast Productions, FanFare Productions and Sony Pictures Television. It follows two young lawyers who cause a culture clash when they join a traditional law firm. Malcolm McDowell guest stars.

The show has also been a hit internationally; Sony has shopped it to global broadcasters including E4 in the UK, Canada’s Bravo!, India’s Star World, Portugal’s SIC, South Africa’s M-Net, Slovenia’s Pop TV, Spain’s Telecinco, Israel’s Hot, Finland’s TV5, Australia’s FX and Fox across Asia.

Franklin & Bash, with its winning cast and some of the sharpest dialogue on television, is a refreshingly clever, light-hearted take on the courtroom drama” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “We look forward to spending another season with Breckin, Mark-Paul and the rest of the terrific cast and crew of Franklin & Bash.”
