The axe has fallen on new shows in the US, two of which impact on four Aussie actors.
ABC supernatural series 666 Park Avenue which stars Rachael Taylor, Dave Annable, Vanessa Williams and Terry O’Quinn pitched itself as a glossy, spooky soap but wasn’t able to connect with viewers. It has been fast-tracked to Australia by Foxtel.
Last Resort, also from ABC, has been axed. The series about a renegade crew of a US Navy submarine included Daisy Betts, Daniel Lissing (pictured) and Dichen Lachman. It was recently announced by Seven has one of its international highlights for 2013.
Both series will now wrap at 13 episodes.
Meanwhile CBS has called it quits on comedy series Partners from David Kohan and Max Mutchnick (Will and Grace). The series was the only new comedy CBS introduced this season. Starring David Krumholtz and Michael Urie, the bromance comedy looks at lifelong friends and architecture partners who are so very different.
