BREAKING. M-Net secures the broadcasting rights to the great new Franklin & Bash; new buddy-lawyer dramedy to air before end of 2011.
You're reading it here first.
I can exclusively break the news and reveal that M-Net has signed for the broadcasting rights to the brand-new (and funny-good!) new buddy-lawyer show Franklin & Bash, and that Franklin & Bash will start on M-Net before the end of the year.
I've been watching Franklin & Bash and love it, and earlier this week the delightful bromance dramedy was renewed for a second season in America. Now I can reveal that M-Net's definitely grabbed the show, and although a specific broadcasting date isn't certain yet, the first season's 10 episodes will definitely start sometime between October and December of this year still on M-Net. The first season of Franklin & Bash started last month in America.
Imagine a male version of Ally McBeal - kooky, kinda crazy, kinda outrageous cases with a wonderful Indian nerdy assistant Pindar and a kinda-weird, aloof-yet-present, eccentric British boss. Franklin & Bash is about two best friends (Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Breckin Meyer), both lawyers, who leave their own ragtag firm and go to work (after they're asked) for a spiffy law firm - but they're adamant to keep their level of to school for cool.
Of course they have no idea what he's talking about, but says their Indian nerdy assistant Pindar (who fears people) with visible trepidation when they show up in front of the gleaming new building on their first day: ''This place looks like a Borg cube.''
