Preview: FOX’s New Comedy “Breaking In”

Attendees at WonderCon had the unique opportunity to screen the Pilot episode of FOX’s new comedy series “Breaking In” right before the panel discussion.  The series will be premiering Wednesday, April 6, 2011 at 9:30pm immediately following ratings behemoth American Idol.

FOX’s description of the series is as follows:  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 Annable), 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.

Miller is an evolutionary biologist whom the fifth Column, led by Erica Evans [series star Elizabeth Mitchell], seeks out because he may know something about the Red Sky which was seen in the closing moments of the show’s season one finale cliffhanger.
