Fox’s The Grinder has became the second new series this fall to get a Back 9 order, bringing its freshman run to a full-season 22 episodes. It joins ABC’s Dr. Ken. The Grinder, starring Rob Lowe, is one of two new Fox comedies toplined by 1980s heartthrobs.
Fox has completed its comedy series pickups with nods to Grandfathered starring John Stamos and The Guide To Surviving Life (formerly Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life), which join freshly picked-up The Grinder, toplined by Rob Lowe.
In The Grinder, Lowe will play an actor who has played an attorney, specifically “beloved TV lawyer Dean Sanderson,” who is known as The Grinder, according to the show description.
