Free Movie - 10 Items or Less

10 Items or Less is a partly scripted, partly improvised American comedy series created by Nancy Hower, John Lehr, and Robert Hickey. It stars Lehr as a less than successful businessman who returns home to run Greens & Grains, the family-owned supermarket, upon the death of his father.

The series debuted on TBS on November 27, 2006. It aired in Canada on Global's CH stations, but CH will not pick up the show when E! replaces CH due to poor ratings. On TBS, it aired every Monday night at 11pm ET/PT with either one or two new thirty minute episodes. Coincidentally, a film also titled 10 Items or Less opened on December 1, 2006, four days after the TV show's premiere.

On March 13, 2007 TBS announced that the show had been picked up for a second season of 8 episodes[1]. The second season aired in the US every Tuesday at 11pm ET/PT, with the last episode airing on March 4, 2008. On May 14, 2008 the show was renewed for a third season to air early in 2009[2]. The series airs in the United Kingdom on FX, and is showing both seasons back to back.


The series stars John Lehr as a struggling New York City businessman who moves back to his hometown of Dayton, Ohio to take over the family supermarket following the death of his father. The show is set in the fictional supermarket known as Greens & Grains, located at 5th Street and Tiberius.

A detailed script is written for each episode outlining the overall story arc. However, this script is not shown to the actors; instead they are provided with a loose outline of the plot, often finding out about it as they film. All dialogue is improvised spontaneously by the actors on the set. A typical 22-minute episode will be edited-down from roughly 30 hours of raw improvised dialogue and scenes[4]. John Lehr describes their production style as "similar to Spinal Tap."[5]

The series is filmed in a real grocery store called "Jon's" in Reseda, California (formerly Vons)[6], often with actual customers used as extras.
