First Trailer for Fox Sitcom BREAKING IN

     January 11, 2011


Fox has released the first trailer for Breaking In, a new sitcom which stars Christian Slater, Bret Harrison, Odette Yustman, Alphonso McAuley, and Trevor Moore.  The series is set at Contra Security (“corporate America’s answer to The A-Team“), where the squad tests the security system of their clients by attempting to subvert it.

I have to admit, I only laughed at once, and it was a typographical joke from the promo department.  But there are some talented people involved.  Seth Gordon (The King of Kong) co-created the series with Adam F. Goldberg (Aliens in America), and Harrison has the potential to a great leading man on television with the right material.  Hopefully this is that material, and it just doesn’t cut down well. Watch the trailer after the break.

Breaking In premieres April 6th in the Wednesday at 9:30/8:30c timeslot.

BREAKING IN is an offbeat half-hour workplace comedy about a high-tech security firm that takes extreme – and often questionable – measures to sell their protection services. Created by Adam F. Goldberg and Seth Gordon, the series centers on a team of uniquely skilled oddball geniuses hand-picked to work for a manipulative mastermind.

Contra Security, corporate America’s answer to “The A-Team,” gives clients a sense of security by first ripping it away. The firm is led by OZ (Christian Slater), a larger-than-life head honcho who is a man of mystery and master of manipulation. The members of the odd squad include alluring bad girl MELANIE (Odette Yustman), who is in charge of lock-picking, safe-cracking and heart-breaking; and CASH (Alphonso McAuley), a fanboy who specializes in strategy, logistics and office pranks only a mad genius could think up.

Oz’s newest recruit, plucked right out of college, is lovable and charming computer hacker CAMERON PRICE (Bret Harrison). Unfortunately for Cameron, cracking into state-of-the-art security systems is a lot easier than dealing with his co-workers. Between Melanie’s sex appeal and Cash’s hazing, Cameron has more than a few obstacles to overcome if he wants to cement his status as part of the team and become Oz’s go-to guy.

BREAKING IN is produced by Happy Madison Productions, Adam F. Goldberg Productions and Sethsquatch, Inc. in association with Sony Pictures Television. Goldberg, Gordon and Doug Robinson (“Rules of Engagement”) serve as executive producers, while Goldberg serves as writer. The pilot was directed by Gordon.

    I give this maybe 3 episodes.

    I’ll watch anything that stars Bret Harrison, that guy is hilarious, and has had 2 great shows cancelled on him (The Loop and Reaper). I’m surprised he wasn’t ever on a Joss Whedon show, that would explain his bad luck.

    Also, getting to see Odette Yustman on a weekly basis would be great (without stalking her I mean).

    Kind of reminds me of the team that Redford had in the movie Sneakers a bit. Sounds like it could be alright. Wish Reaper was still on though..

  • MonsterKilledThePilot

    Could be good.

    Slater and Harrison have bad TV luck so I was apprehensive before the roll but it could actually be alright if it gets a good time slot and the plots aren’t too familiar.

  • Bogie

    DAMN how many shows are they going to waste on Slater? I like Harrison though ever since Grounded for Life and Reaper and I think he just showed up on V.

    I LOVE “Sneakers”. My friends and I found it in HD for free with Encore on Demand a while back and watched it. That was hysterical. Of course it also had Redford and Sidney Poitier. I wish they’d adapt THAT into a TV show. It could be good. Redford’s character being on the run etc… could be part of the ongoing tension.

    As for this, I laughed a few times “Black man can only be Lando? OBAMA!”, “Was he speaking Avatar”, and Michael Rosenbaum as the ditzy boyfriend.

    I watched a few episodes and it was pretty good. Not as good as my usual fav shows like How I meth you mother, the office, psych, big bang theory, etc. but i would give it 4 stars.
