No airdate has been set, but reports say Breaking In may take the place of underperforming Running Wilde. The Will Arnett-led sitcom has yet to be picked up for a full season and was pulled off the schedule for the entire month of sweeps.

The pilot for Breaking In was written by Fanboys scribe Adam F. Goldberg and directed by Seth Gordon (Four Christmases). The show also stars Reaper alum Bret Harrison.

This is Slater's third series in three years, following NBC's My Own Worst Enemy and ABC's The Forgotten.
