A mid-season replacement series, The Deep End finished its first season in February after six episodes. Many websites erroneously reported that the show had been officially cancelled. It wasn’t then but it is now.
The Deep End focuses on a handful of first-year associates who work at a top Los Angeles law firm. Those in the cast include Matt Long, Ben Lawson, Tina Majorino, Norbert Leo Butz, Leah Pipes, Billy Zane, Sherri Saum, Clancy Brown, Mehcad Brooks, and Rachelle Lefevre.
The TV show got off to a rocky start in January with a disappointing 1.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 7.07 million total viewers. Viewership for subsequent episodes fell even lower by the time the sixth and final episode of the season aired in February.
