DEAD LIKE ME RENEWED
Showtime's quirky fantasy/drama series DEAD LIKE ME, about a young girl who finds herself a grim reaper in the afterlife, got renewed today for a second season. 15 more episodes have been ordered from MGM Television Entertainment. Production on the second season is expected to begin in early 2004.
'This is an unqualified hit for us,' said Robert Greenblatt, Showtime President of Entertainment. 'Not only have the critics embraced the show, but its premiere time slot on Friday is earning ratings 60% better than the year-to-date time period average and 45% stronger than the network's overall primetime average. This show portends great things for the future of Showtime, which we hope will become a home for truly original series.'
The first season finale of DEAD LIKE ME is scheduled to be broadcast on September 26 at 10 PM.
