Angelique Cabral is picking up the pieces…
CBS has renewed its freshman comedy series Life in Pieces, starring the 37-year-old part-Latina actress, for another season.
It appears the well-received family show will be one of only a couple of single-camera CBS comedies to get to a second season since the end of M*A*S*H* in 1983 and the first in more than two decades, since Brooklyn Bridge ran for two seasons from 1991-1993.
Life in Pieces, which had received a full-season order, had been considered a safe bet to return. The series, from 20th Century Fox Television, got CBS’ premier half-hour slot, behind flagship The Big Bang Theory, and was kept there for its entire freshman run.
With that lead-in, Life in Pieces ranked as this season’s No. 1 new comedy in viewers (10.53 million) and adults 18-49 (2.7 rating).
In addition to Cabral, who portrays Colleen, the series also stars Dianne Wiest, James Brolin, Zoe Lister-Jones, Colin Hanks, Thomas Sadoski, Betsy Brandt, Dan Bakkedahl, Niall Cunningham, Holly J. Barrett and Giselle Eisenberg.
The series was created by Justin Adler.
