Battle Creek is no more. CBS has canceled the cop drama, from Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and House boss David Shore after one season punctuated by disappointing ratings. The network has also decided to pass on the pilot Sneaky Pete, which counts Breaking Bad alum Bryan Cranston as a co-writer and executive producer.
CBS has scheduled the premiere of Vince Gilligan and David Shore’s Battle Creek. The 13-episode detective series, originally developed 12 years ago, will land on Sunday nights in March. The network is also slotting CSI: Cyber on Wednesdays, leaving several episodes of Stalker to air at a later date.
Hot off his Emmy win for best drama, Vince Gilligan, the creator and producer of “Breaking Bad,” has struck a deal with CBS that will bring him to the more lucrative side of the business, broadcast television.
