The show must go on, 'According to Jim'

Posted on

While sitcoms continue to go dark because of the ongoing writers’ strike, at least one comedy is trying to keep the lights on. A show source confirms that ABC’s According to Jim, which may return as early as this winter for a seventh season, resumed production this week in L.A. even though its writers are picketing. Jim Belushi, who also serves as an executive producer and director, will help run the show, though it’s unclear whether he’ll write, too. Seven episodes have already been completed and, according to one insider, there are five written scripts that have yet to be shot. ABC ordered a total of 18 episodes for this season.
