NBC Cancels Five Series

May 8, 2015  •  Post A Comment

“‘State of Affairs,’ ‘Constantine,’ ‘Marry Me,’ ‘One Big Happy’ and ‘About a Boy’ will not live to see another season,” reports The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed blog in a story written by Kate Stanhope, Michael O’Connell and Lesley Goldberg.

The story continues, “NBC has canceled all four freshman series and the sophomore comedy [‘About a Boy’], The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The news follows a disastarous 2014-15 freshman class at the network, with the network’s rookie class expected to produce few, if any, returning series.

About “State of Affairs,” the story says “[T]he much-hyped TV return of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ alum Katherine Heigl from Universal Television was described as ‘Scandal’ meets ‘The West Wing.’ Co-starring Alfre Woodard as the president, the series underwent a showrunner change ahead of its premiere. With a massive marketing push, the drama opened to 8.6 million total viewers and was a modest performer when factoring in seven days of DVR. The drama ended its run with little fanfare, 4.5 million total viewers — and a cliffhanger.”

This coming Monday, May 11th, 2015, at 11 a.m. ET, at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, NBC will present its new 2015-2016 primetime programming lineup during its annual upfront presentation to media agencies, advertisers and the press.
