Despite Good Reviews and Solid Ratings, Cable Network Chief Says Series May Not Be Renewed

The CEO of a pay cable network, speaking at the Television Critics Association press tour, said one of the channel’s shows may not be renewed even though it is getting solid ratings and has received good reviews, reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog.

The show is "Torchwood." Starz Chief Executive Chris Albrecht said he doesn’t see the show as an annual program.

Albrecht noted that the channel’s 10-episode order for the program represented an unusual commitment for "Torchwood" partner BBC, and additional shows would depend on whether creator Russell T. Davies could create additional ideas that could work for both networks.

Davies "has a lot of things on his plate,” Albrecht said. “If ‘Torchwood’ is at the top of his list, that will affect the future of ‘Torchwood.’"
