‘68 Whiskey’ Canceled By Paramount Network After One Season

EXCLUSIVE: Paramount Network has opted not to pick up a second season of comedic drama 68 Whiskey, an adaptation of the Israeli TV series Charlie Golf One.

The show, from Imagine Television Studios and CBS TV Studios, was well received with a 88% fresh Rotten Tomatoes rating. It also got off to a strong TV ratings start, with the January 15 premiere drawing 2 million viewers in Live+3 Nielsen numbers to mark the most-watched cable drama series premiere in the metric since November 2018. Following the promising premiere the ratings slipped, however, and overall the series ranked outside of the Top 100 in total viewers, adults 18-49 and 25-54 year-to-date (Live+3).

68 Whiskey‘s cancellation leaves powerhouse Yellowstone as Paramount Network’s only current original scripted series. The net’s dramedy Emily In Paris recently relocated to Netflix. Paramount Network earlier this year gave a series order to drama Coyote starring Michael Chiklis.

Based on the blockbuster success of Yellowstone, Paramount Network, now part of ViacomCBS’ Entertainment and Youth Group, is focusing on noisy titles headlined by big stars.

The Walking Dead: Season 11 to End AMC Series But Spin-Offs in the Works

AMC has announced that The Walking Dead TV show is coming to a close but the story is far from over.

The cable channel revealed that the series will end with an expanded 11th season of 24 episodes which will be aired over two years.  AMC previously ordered six extra installments for season 10 so there are still 30 episodes yet to come. The show is expected to air its season finale in 2022.

In addition, AMC has greenlit an as yet untitled spin-off series which will focus on Walking Dead’s  Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) characters. That series is expected to launch in 2023.

An anthology series, titled Tales of the Walking Dead, is also being developed. That series would tell stories of new or existing characters from the Walking Dead universe.

In the immediate future, Fear the Walking Dead returns for its sixth season on October 11th while new series The Walking Dead: World Beyond launches on October 4th, following the 10th season “finale” (six more installments of season 10 will be released in 2021) of The Walking Dead.

‘Doc Martin’: British Drama Starring Martin Clunes To End With Tenth Season

Doc Martin, starring Martin Clunes as the grumpy British doctor, is to hang up his stethoscope next year with the tenth and final season of the UK drama.

ITV has renewed the series, which airs on Acorn TV in the U.S., for a final run with production set to start in 2021.
[...]
Created by Dominic Minghella, Doc Martin has been on air since 2004. It is produced by Buffalo Pictures and executive produced by Mark Crowdy.

Clunes and his wife, producer Philippa Braithwaite, said: “We have loved making nine series of Doc Martin. When we launched the series in 2004, we could never have imagined how much our loyal viewers would take to the grumpy Doc like they have.  The series has avid fans both in the UK and throughout the world and we are thrilled that Doc Martin has topped the ratings every time. However, after sixteen years we now feel that the time has come to say goodbye to Portwenn.  We will be making the tenth and final series in 2021 and we are very much looking forward to returning to Cornwall to film it.”

ITV’s Head of Drama Polly Hill added, “I just want to thank Martin and Philippa and everyone involved in Doc Martin because it’s a brilliant, beautifully made series that has delighted audiences for many years. I am pleased that we are making Series 10, and sad this will be the last, but respect their decision to bring it to a close.”

Amazon’s ‘Cortés y Moctezuma’ Miniseries Starring Javier Bardem Not Going Forward, Casualty Of COVID-19

EXCLUSIVE: Amazon has scrapped plans to resume production and complete Cortés y Moctezuma, its epic four-hour miniseries starring and executive produced by Oscar winner Javier Bardem and executive produced by Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna.

The Amazon Studios/Amblin Partners project, described as the largest Spanish-language production of all time, was two weeks into filming in Mexico when it was shut down because of the coronavirus pandemic. Written by Oscar winner Steve Zaillian, it also starred Tenoch Huerta and Yoshira Escárrega.

“Due to the production constraints created by the COVID-19 global pandemic, Amazon Studios and Amblin Partners are unable to move forward with production on our Cortés y Moctezuma series,” the two companies said in a statement to Deadline. “In the current climate, there is unfortunately no way to remount the production in the near future to achieve the scale and scope that was intended and that the series deserves. We have nothing but admiration and respect for Javier, Tenoch, Yoshira, Gael, Diego, Steve Zaillian, and the entire cast and crew of the series and hope we can work together again in the future.”

‘The Society’ & ‘I Am Not Okay With This’ Canceled By Netflix Due To COVID-Related Circumstances

Netflix has reversed its Season 2 renewal decision for The Society. The YA drama, whose production was impacted by COVID-19, has been canceled and won’t film a second season. Additionally, Netflix has opted not to proceed with a second season of another coming-of-age series, I Am Not Okay With This.

While there had been no official renewal, I hear comedy-drama I Am Not Okay With This had been quietly picked up for a second season, scripts were written, and it was fully on track to go into production.

The Society was renewed last summer for a second season, which had been slated to premiere in late 2020. I hear the delayed season had been eyeing potential start of filming next month.

According to sources, uncertainty around production dates and balancing the availabilities of a large cast like The Society, coupled with unexpected budget increases due to COVID led to the decisions on The Society and I Am Not Okay With This, which had been both well received by critics and fans and had strong support at Netflix.

“We’ve made the difficult decision not to move forward with second seasons of The Society and I Am Not Okay With This,” Netflix said in a statement to Deadline. “We’re disappointed to have to make these decisions due to circumstances created by COVID, and we are grateful to these creators, including: Jonathan Entwistle, Christy Hall, Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, Dan Cohen and Josh Barry at 21 Laps Entertainment for I Am Not Okay With This; Chris Keyser, Marc Webb and Pavlina Hatoupis for The Society; and all the writers, casts and crews who worked tirelessly to make these shows for our members around the world.”

This is something we will likely see more of as the months-long Hollywood shutdown due to the pandemic will create a logjam when trying to ease all series impacted by the shutdown back into production while mitigating higher production costs due to strict COVID-19 safety protocols and losses from the pandemic. Streamers and tech companies in general have been better positioned than traditional media companies in navigating the financial impact from the pandemic.

The cancellation was confirmed by Netflix.

These episodes will continue to be available on Netflix.

I watched this series on the recommendation and found it to be a smart, compelling, well-balanced and intriguing psychological thriller in the tradition of the teen horror (superpowers) genre. Unfortunately it was barely on it's feet and was cancelled before more folks could experience just how fantastic this 'modern day' Buffy was (could have been).

‘Stumptown’ Canceled: ABC Not Proceeding With Season 2; Cobie Smulders Series May Be Shopped Elsewhere

EXCLUSIVE UPDATED: This will come as a shocker to Stumptown fans. The breakout series starring Cobie Smulders, which was renewed for a second season in May, will not be going forward with the Season 2 order. The studio behind the show, ABC Signature, plans to shop it and find a new home for it, I hear.

Stumptown was part of the fall 2020 ABC schedule announced in June, slated to return to the Wednesday 10 PM slot it occupied last season. According to sources, a timing issue related to the production start delay made it impossible for the show to be ready for a fall launch when the network had scheduling needs for the 2020-21 season. As a result, the network made a decision to not move forward with the previously commissioned new season.

The series, which films in Los Angeles, had not started production and did not have a firm start date when the call not to go with Season 2 was made this week. I hear the coronavirus pandemic played a significant role in the delay, which was also related to the extra time needed to get the scripts in good shape after the series changed creative direction with a showrunner change at the end of Season 1. I hear as a result, Season 2 of Stumptown would not have been ready until April, which is the end of the broadcast season, ultimately leading to the cancellation. The cast and the crew were just notified of the decision this afternoon.

The well-received action dramedy is the latest series to become casualty of the COVID-related production shutdown, which scrambled schedules and led to networks reversing pickup decisions. Those include The Society and I’m Not OK With This at Netflix and I’m Sorry at TBS.

As a high-end drama, Stumptown already was among the most expensive second-year broadcast TV scripted series. Additionally, with elaborate stunts, extensive location shoots and romance, Stumptown is the type of series most impacted by COVID-related restrictions, limiting the kind of scenes the show could do and leading to significant budget increases.

One of the most anticipated new series of last season, Stumptown quickly developed strong fan following and emerged as a powerhouse in digital and delayed viewing.

Based on a graphic novel series following veteran Dex Parios, it stars Cobie Smulders, Jake Johnson, Tantoo Cardinal, Cole Sibus, Adrian Martinez, with Camryn Manheim and Michael Ealy. Created and exec produced by Jason Richman, David Bernad, Ruben Fleischer, Greg Rucka, Matthew Southworth and Justin Greenwood are exec producers.

‘United We Fall’ Canceled By ABC After One Season

ABC will not be proceeding with a second season of United We Fall, its family comedy starring Will Sasso and Christina Vidal-Mitchell. The news is not surprising — the sitcom, a leftover from the 2019-20 season, got a summer burn-off run. Still, United We Fall performed respectably for a summer comedy over its eight-episode run.

The series, which debuted July 15 and aired its finale on Aug. 26, was produced by Sony Pictures Television and ABC Studios. The swift cancellation is an illustration why Sony TV is getting out of the network comedy business over the outdated broadcast model.

Ink Master, Wife Swap, Battle of the Fittest Couples: Cancelled by Paramount, Is Yellowstone Next?

There are lots of changes coming to Paramount Network. According to Variety, the cable channel is being rebranded to Paramount Movie Network sometime in 2021.

As part of that change, the cable channel is planning to get out of the original TV series business and shift toward producing made-for-TV movies that star big-name actors. The plan is to produce 52 original films each year and air one per week.

Chris McCarthy, president of entertainment and youth brands for ViacomCBS domestic media networks, said, “Made-for-TV movies provide all the creative upside and ability to work with great talent, without the full-time commitment of a series or feature. Plus, we’re maximizing our investment because we can build a valuable library to use across our streaming, cable, and global footprints.”

Once per quarter, Paramount is expected to air a mini-series or large-scale series. Characters from those projects may be spun-off into their own series or movies. Yellowstone, which was renewed for a fourth season in February, will remain on the cable channel as part of that strategy.

The brand change has been in the works for a while as Paramount has been cancelling scripted series or moving projects to new homes. The channel cancelled plans for a Sexy Beast series and dropped 68 Whiskey after one season.

It’s unclear what will become of the upcoming Coyote series starring Michael Chiklis, Mayor of Kingstown from Taylor Sheridan, or Paradise Lost (in partnership with Spectrum) starring Josh Hartnett.

What will happen to the unscripted TV shows that air on the channel? Bar Rescue and Lip Sync Battle will live on and move to other ViacomCBS channels. Meanwhile, Ink Master, Wife Swap, and Battle of the Fittest Couples will all be cancelled.

At least some of the new Paramount Movie Network content is expected to end up on the Paramount Plus streaming service. CBS All Access will be rebranded with that title in 2021 and will feature a wide range of content from the ViacomCBS library.

‘Teenage Bounty Hunters’ Canceled By Netflix After One Season

EXCLUSIVE: Netflix has opted not to pick up a second season of Teenage Bounty Hunters. The news comes nearly two months after the series’ August 14 debut on the streamer.

Created by Kathleen Jordan, Teenage Bounty Hunters centered on fraternal twins Sterling (Maddie Phillips) and Blair (Anjelica Bette Fellini), who are looking for more trouble beyond their pristine Southern lifestyle. The twins team with experienced bounty hunter Bowser Jenkins (Kadeem Hardison) and start bringing in local criminals. The girls balance the hazards of their secret profession with the finer details of high school life including romance; advanced school work; and, of course, the popular kids. Sterling and Blair work to keep their academic lives and their questionable extracurricular activities separated.

The show cracked the Nielsen Streaming Rankings Top 10 for the week of August 17-23.

Jordan, Jenji Kohan, Tara Herrmann, Robert Sudduth and Black McCormick executive produced the 10-episode series. Jesse Peretz directed and exec produced the premiere episodes.

Netflix goes straight-to-series on all of its projects, bypassing a pilot stage. Cancelling some series after Season 1 is equivalent to networks passing on some of their produced pilots.

‘Last Man Standing’ to End With Season 9 on FOX

Last Man Standing” is coming to an end — again.

Fox announced Wednesday that the previously announced Season 9 of the Tim Allen multi-camera comedy will be the show’s last. The ninth and final season is slated to debut in January. This will mark the second time “Last Man Standing” has ended. The show originally ran for six seasons on ABC before being canceled in 2017. Fox then picked up it for a seventh season, which began airing in 2019. Upon its conclusion, the show will have filmed 194 episodes.

“It has been an honor to be home for Tim Allen and ‘Last Man Standing,’” said Michael Thorn, president of entertainment for Fox Entertainment. “Millions of families have long enjoyed the show because, perhaps, they see themselves in the Baxters. The loyal affection they’ve shown proves just how much this series has meant to them. On behalf of everyone at Fox, a big, big thank you to ‘Last Man Standing’s’ brilliant cast, led by Tim, Nancy and Hector, as well as its writers and crew, headed by showrunner Kevin Abbott. We’ll be rooting them on throughout the season as they conclude what has been an impressive run.”

‘L.A.’s Finest’ Canceled By Spectrum After 2 Seasons

Spectrum has opted not to order a third season of cop drama L.A.’s Finest, an offshoot from the Bad Boys movie franchise headlined by Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba, I have learned.

The decision comes a little over a month after the show’s second season launched on the platform. Spectrum had no comment.

Season 2 was originally scheduled to premiere on June 8, but was pushed to September amid the George Floyd protests against police brutality. All 13 episodes were released at once on September 9 as a weekly air pattern for Season 1.

The first season of L.A.’s Finest is currently airing on Fox, which acquired the series for its fall schedule that was impacted by the pandemic-related production shutdown. It got off to a solid ratings start though the numbers have slipped since.

L.A’s Finest, from creators Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier, Sony Pictures TV, Jerry Bruckheimer TV and 2.0 Entertainment, originated as an NBC pilot. After it did not go to series, studio Sony Pictures TV found a new home for it at Spectrum as the service’s first original series. It had a strong launch, earning a second-season renewal.

‘The President Is Missing’ Series Not Moving Forward at Showtime Due to COVID-19 (EXCLUSIVE)

Bill Clinton and James Patterson’s “The President Is Missing” will not be making it to the small screen, at least not at Showtime.

The premium cabler has decided not to move forward with its buzzy pilot which starred David Oyelowo and was based on the book of the same name by Clinton and Patterson, Variety has learned exclusively from Oyelowo’s co-star Ann Dowd.

Speaking at a junket for the new Netflix film “Rebecca,” Dowd revealed that a combination of COVID-19 and current political events were behind the prospective series’ demise. Another source close to the production confirmed that the pandemic played a significant part in the network’s decision.

“[Production] stopped midway and then because of the pandemic, the relevance of it, things needed to be changed in the writing because of what happens to the President. It just wouldn’t have worked. It would have had to have been re-conceived,” Dowd said.

News of the project being jettisoned comes more than three years after Showtime acquired the rights to the novel, ahead of its publication in June 2018. It will be interesting to see whether the project is repurposed elsewhere, given that Showtime won the rights in a highly competitive situation involving multiple other networks and streaming services, according to sources at the time. Former CBS chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves was said to have be instrumental in bringing the project to the network due to his longstanding relationship with the two authors.

Anthony Peckham wrote the script for the pilot and and executive produced alongside Oyelowo, Clinton, Patterson, Bill Robinson, Leopoldo Gout, Christopher McQuarrie, and Heather McQuarrie. Jillian Share was on board as co-executive producing. The series was also set to star Michael Rooker, Janet McTeer, Ann Dowd, Medina Senghore, Paul Adelstein, and Gina Gallego.

“The President Is Missing” centered around powerless and politically aimless Vice President James Martin (Oyelowo), who is unexpectedly elevated to the Oval Office when President Jillian Stroud (Dowd) goes missing, despite his every wish to the contrary. He walks right into a secret, world-threatening crisis, both inside and outside the White House.

‘Away’ Canceled By Netflix After One Season

EXCLUSIVE: Netflix has opted not to pick up a second season of Away, its space drama series starring Hilary Swank. The decision comes a little over a month after Season 1 was released on September 4.

When making renewal/cancellation decisions, Netflix brass analyze viewership versus cost. Away spent several weeks in the top 10 Nielsen streaming viewership rankings, peaking at No 2 for its first full week of release.

Created by Andrew Hinderaker, Away stars Swank as American astronaut Emma Green. As Green prepares to lead an international crew on the first mission to Mars, she must reconcile her decision to leave behind her husband (Josh Charles) and teenage daughter (Talitha Bateman) when they need her the most. As the crew’s journey into space intensifies, their personal dynamics and the effects of being away from their loved ones back on Earth become increasingly complex. Season 1 ended with Commander Green and her crew safely landing on Mars.

The series is executive produced by Hinderaker, showrunner Jessica Goldberg, Jason Katims, Matt Reeves, Hinderaker, Edward Zwick, Swank, Adam Kassan and Jeni Mulein. Universal Television is the studio.

‘Americanah’ Limited Series Not Moving Forward At HBO Max After Lupita Nyong’o Exits

Americanah will not be moving forward at HBO Max.

The limited series had been a longtime passion project of Lupita Nyong’o who was set to star in and executive produce the adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s best-selling novel of the same name. Nyong’o’s Black Panther co-star Danai Gurira wrote the pilot and was to serve as showrunner.

According to sources, the decision to not proceed with Americanah was made after Oscar winner Nyong’o dropped out because of a scheduling conflict.

The show had received a 10-episode straight-to-series order at the streamer last year. It had been cast and ready to go when the coronavirus pandemic shutdown all production in March. The delays caused by the shutdown have scrambled the schedules of A-list talent who are usually booked a year or so in advance with little wiggling room.

Americanah tells the epic story of Ifemelu (Nyong’o), a young, beautiful, self-assured woman raised in Nigeria, who as a teenager falls in love with her classmate Obinze. Living in a military-ruled country, they each depart for the west, with Ifemelu heading for America, where, despite her academic success, she is forced to grapple for the first time with what it means to be black. Quiet, thoughtful Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead plunges into a dangerous undocumented life in London.

The series also was to star Uzo Aduba, Corey Hawkins, Zackary Momoh, and Tireni Oyenusi. Its demise was first reported by Variety.

‘Brave New World’ Canceled By Peacock After One Season

EXCLUSIVE: Peacock has opted not to proceed with a second season of Brave New World. UCP, the studio behind the sci-fi drama series, based on Aldous Huxley’s groundbreaking novel, will shop it to other outlets.

“There will not be Season 2 of Brave New World on Peacock,” the streamer said in a statement to Deadline. “David Wiener created a thought-provoking and cinematic adaptation. We’re grateful to the cast and crew who brought this world to life. We look forward to telling more stories with David in the future.

This marks the first major TV series cancellation since Susan Rovner joined NBCUniversal earlier this month as Chairman, Entertainment Content, overseeing programming for television and streaming.

Brave New World was part of Peacock’s inaugural original slate and the only homegrown scripted series available at launch in July. The big-budget drama did not generate a lot of buzz among critics and fans. Like most streamers, Peacock does not release performance information on its shows.
[...]
From UCP, in association with Amblin Television, the series is executive produced by Wiener and Morrison, along with Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey, co-presidents of Amblin Television. Wiener also serves as showrunner. Owen Harris directed the first two episodes and executive produces the series.

Brave New World had a long journey to the screen. NBCUniversal’s Syfy and Amblin TV originally partnered to develop a scripted series based on Huxley’s classic in 2015. A year later, Morrison and Taylor were tapped to write the adaptation. In 2019, the project received a straight-to-series order by Syfy sibling USA Network. The series, whose Season 1 budget is said to be close to $100 million, later migrated to NBCU’s new streaming platform Peacock as its sole homegrown original scripted series at launch.

Filthy Rich and NeXt are both ending after one season on Fox, Deadline has confirmed.

The network will not renew either series for a second season, though both shows will see out their current runs. Low ratings — both shows are averaging a 0.5/3 in the adults 18-49 demo — and uncertainty are behind the cancellation of the series, which were both originally intended for summer runs.

NeXt has aired three episodes of its 10-episode order, while Filthy Rich has aired five of its 10 episodes.

Created by Tate Taylor, Filthy Rich stars Sex and the City alumna Kim Cattrall as Margaret Monreaux, the matriarch of a mega-rich Southern family famous for creating a wildly successful Christian television network. After her husband dies in a plane crash, Margaret and family are stunned to learn that he fathered three illegitimate children, all of whom are written into his will — threatening their family name and fortune.

Conan O’Brien is getting out of the nightly game and has swapped his daily show for a weekly variety series on HBO Max. The move means that O’Brien will no longer front a late-night talk show for the first time in 28 years.

Conan, which has aired on TBS since 2010, will conclude at the end of its 10th season in June 2021, WarnerMedia said Tuesday. He has fronted more than 1,400 episodes of the show, which launched after the comedian’s acrimonious departure from The Tonight Show.

“In 1993 Johnny Carson gave me the best advice of my career: ‘As soon as possible, get to a streaming platform.’ I’m thrilled that I get to continue doing whatever the hell it is I do on HBO Max, and I look forward to a free subscription,” joked O’Brien.

The move comes weeks after Jeff Ross, who exec produces Conan and has worked with the former Simpsons writer for many years, told Deadline that the pair had been considering their future.

Ross told Deadline that he believes late-night shows are now “kind of dinosaurs in the business” and said that they were looking to do something different, as evidenced by this deal. “TBS and these linear cable networks, especially, are just like death. You know there’s no circulation, so you can’t do it forever. And [Conan] is ready for a change. We’ve got a lot of stuff going on between the podcast and the show and the digital business,” he said.

Conan, which was re-tooled into a half-hour format in 2019, had previously been renewed through to 2022. The show’s Conan Without Borders travel specials featuring O’Brien traveling to other countries will continue to air on TBS, WarnerMedia said.

Team Coco, which will produce the new HBO Max weekly show, is already in business with the streamer, making four stand-up specials featuring comedians including Chris Redd and Moses Storm.

“28 years is a monumental achievement in late-night television,” said Brett Weitz, General Manager for TNT, TBS and truTV.  “We’re incredibly proud of the groundbreaking work that Conan and his team have accomplished during the 10 years at TBS and are so glad that we will continue to have his presence on our air with the ‘Conan Without Borders’ specials. We celebrate his success and are glad to see it grow across our WarnerMedia family.”

“Conan’s unique brand of energetic, relatable, and at times, absurdist, comedy has charmed late-night audiences for nearly three decades. We can’t wait to see what he and the rest of Team Coco will dream up for this brand new, variety format each week,” said Casey Bloys, Chief Content Officer, HBO and HBO Max.
