What’s next for 9JKL and Wisdom of the Crowd? Deadline reports CBS has ordered additional scripts for the two freshman TV shows.
Loosely based on the life of Mark Feuerstein, 9JKL centers on newly divorced actor, Josh Roberts (Feuerstein), who moves from Los Angeles, back to his hometown of New York City. The only problem is, his apartment is sandwiched between those of his parents, Harry and Judy (Elliott Gould and Linda Lavin) on one side, and his brother and sister-in-law, Andrew and Eve (David Walton and Liza Lapira), on the other.
Meanwhile, Wisdom of the Crowd stars Jeremy Piven as Jeffrey Tanner, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur who sets out to design an online platform for real-time, crowdsourced crime solving.CBS has ordered three additional scripts for both Wisdom of the Crowd and 9JKL, bringing their total number of episodes up from 13 to 16. However, while both shows are bringing in decent ratings, the news isn’t all good for Wisdom of the Crowd.
This week, sexual harassment allegations were made against star Jeremy Piven and in response, CBS says they are “looking into the matter.” In things go the way they did for Netflix’s House of Cards, Wisdom of the Crowd may be facing a swift cancellation.
What do you think? Do you watch 9JKL and/or Wisdom of the Crowd? Do you think they should be renewed for a second season?
