TNT May Take "Southland"

There could be some life left in Southland -- but not on NBC.

We were wondering if the network was planning to burn off remaining episodes, after cancelling the acclaimed drama earlier this month. However, The Wrap says that's not happening.

NBC and Warner Bros. have made a deal that releases NBC from having to air any of the remaining episodes. Apparently, they want to save that love for TNT. The show has not been officially picked up, but according to the article, TNT has confirmed it was "mulling the idea."

This deal will release NBC from any "shutdown costs," which will make it easier for another network to scoop it up. Of course, NBC will also get some of the $10 million that the network has spent on season two. Also, if the show does get picked up, NBC will keep getting paid, until its entire second-season investment is returned.

Don't get too excited, though. TNT has yet to sign the cancelled drama. Even if they want it, there's no guarantee that they will order more episodes. Stay tuned.
