Nov 6, 2018  •  Post A Comment

NBC has pulled the plug on a drama series, with Variety reporting that the network canceled “Reverie.” The science-fiction series starring Sarah Shahi and Dennis Haysbert wrapped up its freshman season in August, airing 10 episodes.

“’Reverie’ landed a series order last year,” Variety notes. “It hailed from writer Mickey Fisher, who created Halle Berry’s former CBS series ‘Extant.’ Fisher served as executive producer with Justin Falvey and Daryl Frank of Amblin TV, and Brooklyn Weaver. Jaume Collet-Serra directed the pilot, and also executive produced.”

The series was produced by Universal Television.

“Shahi starred as a former detective specializing in human behavior who is brought in when the launch of an advanced virtual reality program has dangerous and unintended consequences,” Variety notes.

The show averaged a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demo and 2.1 million viewers in Nielsen live plus same day figures.
