  • Life rules!

    » Episode 9 of Life titled Serious Control Issues will air at 10pm ET in the US tomorrow night (Wednesday, Nov. 28th); episode 10 Dig a Hole will broadcast next Monday (Dec. 3rd) and we will see episode 11 Fill It Up on Wednesday, Dec 5th.

    According to the NBC Press Release “We’re thrilled to pick up ‘Life,’ which is produced by our own studio, for a full season,” said Ben Silverman, Co-chairman, NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios. “We’re so appreciative of the cast, producers and crew for delivering such a high-quality, compelling drama each week and we look forward to many more episodes to come.”

    Universal Media Studios President Katherine Pope said: “Rand Ravich, Far Shariat and their team have re-invented the cop show genre with ‘Life.’ With the pitch-perfect Damian Lewis at the center of a brilliant cast, each week this show has quietly built since its premiere into the little engine that could.
