LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- Strike or no strike, ABC has given a full season order of 22 episodes to its freshman drama "Dirty Sexy Money."
The news marks the first full season pick-up since the WGA officially went on strike November 5. And while only 11 of its initial order of 13 episodes have been completed, the Alphabet nevertheless is hoping the work stoppage will conclude in time to resume production on the full 22.
To date, ABC has given four of its eight newcomers full seasons, the others being "Private Practice," "Samantha Who?" and "Pushing Daisies." Final verdicts on "Cavemen," "Carpoolers," "Big Shots" and "Women's Murder Club" have yet to be issued.
Craig Wright, Greg Berlanti, Josh Reims, Matthew Gross and Bryan Singer are the executive producers of the ABC Studios-based series.
