Cancelled Casting Notes for November 26, 2011

Cancelled casting: Joanna Garcia and Jane CurtinAs you probably know all to well, dozens and dozens of TV shows are cancelled every year. We have to say goodbye to some beloved characters but thankfully the actors that play them often still pop up in other shows. This is what we like to call “cancelled casting.” Here’s what some of those talented folks are up to:

Joanna Garcia (Privileged) is reportedly being courted for a role on ABC’s Once Upon a Time. Word is that producers want her to play a version of Ariel from The Little Mermaid.

Jane Curtin (Kate & Allie) is joining the cast of CBS’ Unforgettable and her episodes will start airing in early 2012. The Emmy Award-winning actress will be playing “an acerbic and demanding inspector who was running the medical examiner’s office in Manhattan until being demoted to the Queens Police Department for being insubordinate.”

2008 – 2009 Cancelled TV Shows: 10 CW Series That Won’t Be Back for 2009 – 2010

May 27, 2009
The CW was the last to announce their new schedule for the 2009 - 2010 season. The network targets the desirable young female demographic but has been having a hard time attracting many viewers at all -- at least when you compare them to the four major networks. For next season, they've renewed 90210, America's Next Top Model, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, Smallville, and Supernatural. Over the Summer, they're unveiling two new series; reality show Hitched or Ditched debuted tonight and drama Blonde Charity Mafia will show up in July. Next season, you'll be able to see The Beautiful Life, Parental Discretion Advised, The Vampire Diaries, and a new version of Melrose Place. The shows you won't be seeing back next season include 4Real, 13: Fear Is Real, Easy Money, Everybody Hates Chris, The Game, In Harm's Way, Privileged, Reaper, Stylista, and Valentine.

Privileged: Essentially Cancelled or Will There Be Season Two?

February 24, 2009
Tonight, the CW airs the season finale of Privileged. While some may have been hoping for a nice happy resolutions, the TV show is leaving plenty of cliffhangers. Will the cast and crew return with season two to answer them? The story of Privileged opens as Yale-educated Megan Smith (JoAnna Garcia) begins working for cosmetics tycoon Laurel Limoges (Anne Archer). She's hired as the live-in tutor for Laurel's twin teenage granddaughters, Rose (Lucy Kate Hale) and Sage Baker (Ashley Newbrough). Megan's ultimate goal is to make sure that the spoiled girls are accepted into a top university. Though the twins seem to have every advantage, it's no easy task. Others in the cast include Allan Louis, Brian Hallisay, Kristina Apgar, Michael Cassidy, Rizwan Manji, Alice Greczyn, Stacy Barnhisel, Melissa Ordway, Ignacio Serricchio, David Giuntoli, John Allen Nelson, Dave Franco, Ally Matsumura, David Monahan, Sharon Lawrence, Andrew J. West, and Steven Culp. Despite positive reviews and plenty of buzz, Privileged debuted on September 9, 2008 to 2.64 million viewers and a 1.2/3 rating/share of the 18-49 demographic. Those numbers were nothing to get excited about, even by CW standards, and the demo numbers were particularly disappointing based on the show's projected audience. The ratings dipped a little in week two but then fell significantly to just 1.81 million and a 0.8/2 for episode three.
