CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- FOX is planning to stick by another one of its struggling series as the network announced today it has ordered seven additional episodes of its freshman drama "Tru Calling." The news, given via press release, brings the show's season total to 20 episodes.
Through four airings this season the series has averaged just 4.02 million viewers, making it the network's least-watched drama this season, behind even the short-lived "Skin" (5.17 million). Overall only the failed comedy "Luis" (3.43 million) has performed worse this season on average for the network.
"Tru Calling," a co-production of 20th Century Fox Television and Original Film, was created by executive producer/writer Jon Harmon Feldman ("Dawson's Creek," "American Dreams"). Marty Adelstein ("Still Life"), Neal Moritz ("The Fast And The Furious," "I Know What You Did Last Summer"), Dawn Parouse ("Still Life," "Fear") and R. W. (Bob) Goodwin ("The X-Files," "The Fugitive") are also executive producers.
