Fox Cancels ‘The Chicago Code’, ‘Human Target’, ‘Lie to Me’ and ‘Breaking In’

The Chicago Code get canceled by Fox Fox has ordered series pickups with Zooey Deschanel-starring comedy The New Girl (formerly titled Chicks and Dicks), as well as dramas Alcatraz from J.J. Abrams, Bones' spinoff The Finder, and Jaime Pressly-starring I Hate My Teenage Daughter. To make room for the new shows, Fox cancelled Breaking In, Traffic Light, The Chicago Code, Lie to Me, and sophomore Human Target.

In The New Girl, Zooey Deschanel stars as "a quirky teacher who moves in with three guys - the cynic, the player and the man-child - after being dumped." Jake M. Johnson, Max Greenfield, and Damon Wayans Jr. play the three guys; Hannah Simone also stars. No Strings Attached writer Elizabeth Meriwether created the series. Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story) directed the single-camera pilot.

From J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Prods. and Warner Bros. TV, Alcatraz is a crime drama revolving around Alcatraz and the team investigating the mysterious reappearance of its 1960s inhabitants in the present.

The Finder is a Bones spinoff from sister studio 20th TV, and centers on a military-trained "finder" (Geoff Stults) who helps locate lost items or persons in the Florida Keys.

The sitcom I Hate My Teenage Daughter starring Jaime Pressly and Katie Finnerman is also "a go."

      @fanboy@space101@jptheredskull@ghostman Maybe TNT will save Chicago Code. I hear they save cop shows from time to time (Southland).

            @jptheredskull Breakin In might get saved. FOX is sitting down with the producers of the show and talking about saving it. Rosenbaum said it himself on twitter

                  Human Target was getting better with each episode. Breaking makes me laugh out loud (give it some time a$$hats). It's crap like this that makes me want to stop watching anything associated with Fox networks. They cancel way too many good shows.

                    son of a bitch.. Human Target was one of my favorite shows out there. thats messed up. Breaking In was pretty good too. Michael Rosenbaum and Christian Slater were hilarious in it

                          Human Target was an awesome show. Jackie Earle Haley was priceless on it. Dear Fox, you suck. Cancel House, cause its been on far too long. And Lie to Me has been cancelled three times already, its about time these basterds stuck with.

                              Sh*t that SUCKS! Human Target was one of my must-watch shows. It was getting better all the time. I've got the whole season of Chicago Code DVR'd - was going to catch it in the summer... Maybe I'll just delete it now. No reason to get invested in something that's been sh*t-canned. Breaking In sucked, anyway, so no biggie there. Lie to Me was also a great one. Roth is brilliant in it. Seems like the writers were starting to get lost in it, though.

                              Still RIP Human Target and Lie to Me. You'll be missed.

                                Yea Fox sucks ass. They could at least move some of the shows to FX. And looks like Michael Rosenbaum should have stayed on Smallville cause every show he has done since he left has been cancelled. I'm glad he is back for the series finale though. He is the best Lex and the most evil.
