More Additions, Cuts on the Eve of Upfront Week
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- With 48 hours to go until its upfront presentation, ABC has issued pink slips out to its freshman entries "Invasion" and "Freddie" as well as its veteran comedy "Hope & Faith."

The trio join the previously cut "Alias," "Emily's Reasons Why Not," "Hot Properties," "Night Stalker" and "Sons & Daughters." Also not expected back: "Commander-In-Chief," "Crumbs, "The Evidence," "In Justice," "Jake in Progress," "Less Than Perfect" and "Rodney."

Still up in the air however are the fates of "According to Jim" and "The George Lopez Show."

Meanwhile over on NBC, which presents tomorrow, the network has pulled the plug on its midseason series "Conviction" and "Teachers." Similar fates are also likely for "E-Ring," "Four Kings," "Joey" and "Surface," all of whom have been off the air for several months. Said developments leave "Scrubs" as the only "bubble" series left with a chance at renewal.

And finally in pilot pick-up news, NBC has granted "Andy Barker, P.I." a six-episode order while FOX is moving forward with "The Wedding Album."

"Barker," from NBC Universal Television, is a single-camera comedy about a CPA (Andy Richter) who becomes a private detective. Amy Farrington ("The New Adventures of Old Christine"), Harve Presnell ("The Pretender"), Ion Overman ("Love, Inc."), Marshall Manesh ("How I Met Your Mother"), Peter James Smith ("The West Wing") and Tony Hale ("Arrested Development") also star in the half-hour, which comes from creators Conan O'Brien and Jonathan Groff. Jason Ensler directed the pilot.

"Album," from creators Andy Tennant and Wink Mordaunt, revolves around a wedding photographer (Bruno Campos) and his assistant (Tara Summers) who attempt to find romance in their own lives while shooting the marriages of New York hotshots. Ashlie Atkinson ("Rescue Me"), Connie Stevens ("Fat Actress"), Eva Pigford ("America's Next Top Model"), Jayce Bartok ("Tempting Adam") and Ptolemy Slocum ("Hitch") also star in the hour, which is based at Fox TV Studios. Tennant helmed the pilot from a script he co-wrote with Mordaunt.
