An A&E drama series that recently finished its second season on the cable network has been canceled, Deadline.com reports. The show is “Breakout Kings,” which starred Domenick Lombardozzi, Laz Alonso and Jimmi Simpson.
The series had a better run than expected after its pilot was passed over by Fox in 2010, the story notes. The show, a production of 20th Century TV’s Fox21 division, premiered March 6, 2011, and gave A&E its most-watched drama premiere in key demos, delivering 1.5 million viewers 18-49.
Co-creator and executive producer Matt Olmstead just signed up to run the NBC drama "Chicago Fire."
