The CW is pulling the plug on a show that has failed to gain ratings traction. TheWrap.com reports that the broadcast network is canceling “Breaking Pointe,” a reality series about the Salt Lake City ballet company Ballet West.
CW President Mark Pedowitz made the announcement at the Television Critics Association press tour. “I wish it did better,” Pedowitz said. “Docusoaps are very hard for broadcasters to get going versus cable.”
The show premiered in May 2012 and aired for two seasons.
He added that the future of “The Carrie Diaries” and “Beauty and the Beast” will be determined in May, and that he’s “very bullish” on the network’s historical drama “Reign.”
