CBS orders four more scripts for new 'Moonlight' vampire drama
UPI News Service, 10/24/2007
CBS has reportedly ordered four more scripts for its new Los Angeles-set vampire drama, "Moonlight" despite its less-than-stellar ratings.
The show, which is about a good-guy vampire who works as a private investigator, is the network's lowest rated Friday program.
The move to plan future episodes of the series could be a sign CBS is giving the show a chance after it had a difficult journey getting made in the first place, Zap2it.com said, adding the network's decision might also have something to do with a possible upcoming writers' strike.
CBS picked up "Moonlight" based on a brief presentation, not a full pilot, then changed everything but the premise and leading man Alex O'Loughlin.
