Cable Channel Cancels One Sitcom While Another Awaits Its Fate THR
A cable channel has announced that one of its sitcoms will not return for a third season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The channel is Disney’s boy-oriented Disney XD channel, which has canceled the live-action comedy "I'm in the Band," the story reports. The sitcom is the second show the channel has canceled, following the live-action adventure series "Aaron Stone."
"I'm in the Band" has filmed enough second-season episodes to last for the rest of the year, but the channel has informed the cast and crew that the show won't return for a third season, the story says.
Another program, the skateboarding sitcom "Zeke and Luther," is in limbo. The show has reportedly wrapped its third season, and the network has yet to decide whether it will come back for a fourth.
Disney XD is working on several new shows, such as "Kickin' It," starring Jason Earle, who plays Hannah Montana's brother, as an untalented martial arts dojo, the story notes.
