A cable channel has pulled the plug on a comedy series. Writing on the website Deadline.com, Nellie Andreeva reports that USA Network will not go forward with a third season of “Sirens.”
The series from Denis Leary and Bob Fisher follows the exploits of paramedics working in Chicago. Produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, it stars Michael Mosley, Kevin Daniels and Kevin Bigley.
“Sirens was the first original half-hour comedy series to launch under USA’s push in the genre following the off-network acquisition of ‘Modern Family,'” Andreeva notes. “It was soon joined by ‘Playing House’ and ‘Benched,’ two of which, ‘Sirens’ and ‘Benched,’ have now been canceled.”
