NBC Cancels Drama Series

Jul 3, 2015  •  Post A Comment

An NBC drama series that recently wrapped its season has been canceled. Variety reports that NBC pulled the plug on “A.D.: The Bible Continues” after its one-season run.

The report notes that producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey “plan to return to the greatest story ever told on their nascent digital channel.”

“A.D.,” which picked up where the hit 2013 miniseries “The Bible” left off, averaged about 6.5 million total viewers and a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 based on live-plus-7 Nielsen figures, Variety notes. The show’s 12-episode run on NBC wrapped June 21.

“The numbers were too soft for a renewal on NBC,” Variety notes. “But now that the ‘A.D.’ moniker is established with a devoted cadre of viewers, Burnett and Downey see it as a perfect tentpole for the launch of the OTT channel they have been working on since partnering with MGM to form United Artists Media Group last fall.”

The new channel, which will focus on faith-based content, is expected to arrive in late 2016 or early 2017.

  1. NBC…You are a ‘Failed’ channel. Seems to be….who (whom) you decide to like or agree with..you endorse. Opinions outside YOUR NBC stradegy..you Fire. Here is what NBC: The general public does Not watch your channel. Why? We the general public are not stupid. YOU however have made many mistakes in your broadcasting..and We the general public can name them all. Once again..another notch of stupidity with NBC. Once upon a time during the Matt Laur and Katie Couric days..NBC was popular..not now..Only time watched your channel was Celeb App.
    Now…I’ve asked Comcast to remove NBC from my cable. Laugh…go ahead..We the public judges. NBC…you are the problem!

  2. N.B.C……two words…. YOU FAIL!!!!!!..=(.

  3. Rose, the fact that your a “Celebrity Apprentice” viewer gives me all the information I need to know on how to evaluate your opinions. You failed miserably. God help us if this is what the idiot viewing public wants to see. Even God won’t be able to help us if that A-hole Trump should become president.
