A&E cancels The Cleaner

by Allison Waldman, posted Sep 26th 2009 3:40PM
The_Cleaner_Benjamin_BrattWhile a lot of shows seem to be thriving in cable, in the last couple of days, two series have bitten the dust. TBS dumped The Bill Engvall Show after three seasons, and now A&E Network has canceled The Cleaner, opting not to give the drama series another year. Hmm... does that mean Benjamin Bratt is available to return to Law and Order?

Probably not. Been there, done that, you know. But the TV pro is now unemployed although I doubt that'll be for long. The Cleaner just never really clicked for A&E. It was as intense as the network's hit reality show, Intervention, but it wasn't nearly as compelling.

What to Watch Tuesday, Oct. 14

Eli Stone'Eli Stone'
(10PM, ABC) 2nd season premiere
Eli has lived to see another season, and he'll begin it brain aneuryism-free. It's been six months since the legal eagle has experienced one of his prophetic visions and all seems well ... until Eli's doctor brother Nate starts having visions of his own.

In fact, when Jordan is trapped inside a building, Nate gets a picture of exactly where he is, leading to a showdown between Eli, who believes his brother, and Jordan's daughter/Eli's ex, Taylor, who thinks Nate has just caught a case of the crazies.

Has he, or is Nate's diagnosis far more dire? Perhaps a new therapist -- played by guest star Sigourney Weaver -- can shed some light on the brain matter.

'90210'
(8PM, The CW) series premiere
This new class of West Beverly High students? They have a lot in common with the '90s grads.

Just like sibs Brenda and Brandon Walsh, sibs Annie and Dixon Wilson move from the Midwest to the super swanky 90210 zip code, and their new pals include spoiled rich girl Naomi (sooo Kelly Taylor), BMOC Ethan (sooo Dylan McKay) and smartypants reporter Navid (sooo Andrea Zuckerman).

They'll also cross paths with original '90210'-ers, including the aforementioned Kelly (the West Bev guidance counselor) and Brenda (a guest director of the school play), and we can't wait 'til the rivalry kicks in again: They both fall for hot teacher Ryan Mathews.

'The Cleaner'
(10PM, A&E)
Think supermodels are under big pressure to keep their bods in designer sample size shape? William (Benjamin Bratt) finds out tonight about another profession whose practitioners have to keep their bodies in tip top petite form: Horse jockeys.

In fact, Mrs. Jockey, the wife of a successful rider, hires William to help her diminutive hubby, who's become an addict while taking a drug that helps him maintain his weight.

Sure, the missus wants him to be eligible to compete, but not only is she afraid for the state of his health should he continue taking the meds, she's afraid of her spouse; seems the drugs have the side effect of making the jockey a bit psycho.

What to Watch Tuesday, July 29

'Eureka'
(9PM, SCI FI) 3rd season premiere
A crazed robot has just escaped, while the citizens of Eureka are still trying to deal with that metal-eating bacteria that was floating through the town's air at the end of last season. As Sheriff Jack Carter would say, that can't be good.

Then again, when are things ever calm in Eureka, that quirky little hamlet populated by genius -- and some might say "mad" -- scientists? With Jack busily trying to maintain law and some semblance of order in the face of the on-the-lam robot and the weird germs, a woman known as "The Fixer" is sent in to help clean up the Global Dynamics mess.

Of course, Eureka being Eureka, anyone known as a 'fixer' is probably going to end up creating a few new messes along the way.

Benjamin Bratt Interview for 'The Cleaner'

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jul 15th 2008 6:00AM
Benjamin Bratt"It wasn't until I read ['The Cleaner'] script that I thought, 'Does it help me or hurt me that I did 'Andromeda Strain'?'"

Hard to believe it's been almost 10 years since Benjamin Bratt starred on 'Law & Order' -- thanks to syndication, it's
like he never left.

But now he's making a clean break (literally), as William Banks, a recovering addict who helps other addicts, on A&E's 'The Cleaner' (premieres Tuesday, July 15, 10 PM ET).

AOL TV talked to Bratt about his return to TV, second chances ... and his own "addiction."

A&E has a new scripted series, their first in six years

by Kristin Sample, posted May 28th 2008 7:03PM
Benjamin BrattThis summer, A&E will launch its first scripted drama series in six years. The Cleaner stars Benjamin Bratt (Law and Order, Miss Congeniality), Amy Price-Francis (Californication), Grace Park (Battlestar Galactica), Kevin Michael Richardson (Knights of Prosperity), Esteban Powell (Dazed and Confused, Powder), Brett DelBuono (Balls of Fury) and Liliana Mumy (Cheaper by the Dozen).

Bratt will play William Banks, a recovered drug addict who helps others kick their habits. After hitting rock-bottom because of his own problems with addiction, Banks makes a deal with God when his daughter is born. He vows to help others. However, his means of intervention are unconventional and unrelenting to say the least. In the series premiere, Banks helps high school meth addict Zach, a once-promising young athlete. Along the way, Banks discovers the cause of Zach's addiction, a fracture in the family after Zach's father died. He also uncovers a drug-fencing operation.

The Cleaner premieres Tuesday July 15th at 10 p.m. ET. Will you be watching?
