Two networks are interested in picking up the cop drama Southland, says the show's executive producer, John Wells.

NBC cancels Southland

Wells called Southland's actors last week to tell them he's in talks to find the show a new home, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

NBC canceled the show even before its second season premiere, saying its content was too dark and gritty for broadcast television.

While Wells didn't specify which networks he's had discussions with, TNT has been interested in acquiring the series and is the most likely contender.

If a deal is made, it's unlikely that filming will resume soon. The buyer would run the first season's seven episodes and six produced for Season 2 to create a 13-episode freshman season.
