CBS is handing out votes of confidence to three freshman series.
The network has ordered the back nine episodes for “Bull”, “MacGyver” and “Kevin Can Wait”, which brings them all to 22 episodes for their first seasons.
Additionally, Hulu has announced that it has picked up satire “Difficult People” for a third season of 10 episodes, which are set to premiere sometime next year.
Two more pickups from just now.
In what comes as little surprise, NBC has ordered Dick Wolf’s fourth project in his “Chicago” franchise, “Chicago Justice” to series for the 2016-2017 season.
The project revolves around Chicago State’s Attorney’s team of prosecutors and investigators as they navigate heated city politics and controversy head-on while fearlessly pursuing justice.
Philipp Winchester, Carl Weathers, Nazneen Contractor, Joelle Carter and Ryan-James Hatanaka star.
Meanwhile, CBS has officially ordered another comedy for the fall, “Kevin Can Wait”, bringing Kevin James (“The King of Queens”) back to TV.
James plays a newly retired police officer looking forward to spending carefree, quality time with his wife and three kids, only to discover he faces tougher challenges at home than he ever did on the streets.
Erinn Hayes, Taylor Spreitler, Mary-Charles Jones, James Digiacomo, Ryan Cartwright, Leonard Earl Howze, Lenny Venito and Gary Valentine co-star.
