NBC orders nine more episodes of 'Life'

Posted on



Charlie Crews may not know who framed him, but he’s got at least nine more episodes to figure it out: NBC has picked up the detective drama Life for the rest of the season, giving the series a full slate of 22 episodes for the 2008-9 campaign. (The network ordered six additional scripts a few weeks ago, so there shouldn’t be any lag in production.) The critically respected yet modestly rated Life — averaging a little more than six million viewers this season — moved from Fridays at 10 p.m. to Wednesdays at 9 p.m. this week. — Additional reporting by Lynette Rice
