The future of Southland is in the air this week, following two of the show's stars signing on for new projects.
First, Benjamin McKenzie took a role on CBS' The Advocates. On that series, he will play an ex-con who teams up with a female attorney to fight for the underdog.
Now, Deadline confirms that Shawn Hatosy will star in Reckless, a Charleston, South Carolina-based drama that centers on two lawyers who must hide their attraction for each other while clashing over a police sex scandal.
Hatosy will play a detective on the pilot.
Both projects are in "second position" for McKenzie and Hatosy, meaning they will return to Southland if TNT orders a sixth season.
But this certainly isn't a positive sign for that series, which has only been averaging 1.3 million viewers in 2013.
