TNT Issues Summons for "Franklin & Bash" Season 4

TNT has ordered a fourth season of Franklin & Bash, the popular buddy drama starring Breckin Meyer (Heroes) and Mark-Paul Gosselaar (NYPD Blue). Produced by Four Sycamore Productions, Left Coast Productions and FanFare Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television, Franklin & Bash also stars Malcolm McDowell (Entourage) and Reed Diamond (24). TNT has ordered 10 episodes for season four, which is slated to air in summer 2014.

Franklin & Bash centers on Jared Franklin (Meyer) and Peter Bash (Gosselaar), two young, fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants street lawyers who caused a seismic culture clash when they joined Infeld-Daniels, a legendary, button-down law firm. The patriarch of the firm - the brilliant and eccentrically spontaneous Renaissance man Stanton Infeld (McDowell) - hired them because he admires how Jared sticks it to authority every chance he gets and how Peter is able to forge a personal connect with both judge and jury.

Since hanging their shingle at Infeld-Daniels, Peter and Jared have repeatedly butted heads with fellow lawyers, especially Damien Karp (Diamond), who disapproves of their casual style and law-skirting methods. Karp also happens to be Stanton Infeld's nephew.

Franklin & Bash is executive-produced by Jamie Tarses (Happy Endings, My Boys), Kevin Falls (The West Wing, Sports Night) and Bill Chais (Shark, Dirty Sexy Money). The show launched on TNT in 2011 and went on to rank as one of basic cable's Top 5 new series that summer. The third season, which aired this past summer, averaged 3.4 million viewers, with 1.5 million adults 25-54. In January, Franklin & Bash earned a GLAAD Media Award nomination for its second-season episode "L'affaire Du Coeur," in which Karp represents a college buddy accused of cheating in a gay softball tournament.
