Early last year, FOX ordered a new romantic comedy, Us & Them, for the 2013-14 season. In October, the network cancelled the show and shut down production after six episodes.
Word was that they were unhappy with the direction of the series and planned to burn off the produced episodes this summer. Now, TVLine reports that the sitcom won’t ever air on the network. No reason for the decision was given.
Based on the British series Gavin & Stacey, Us & Them is a single-camera ensemble comedy that follows a pair of young lovers (Jason Ritter and Alexis Bledel) whose relationship is complicated by their each having an unusual group of friends. The rest of the cast includes Ashlie Atkinson, Dustin Ybarra, Jane Kaczmarek, Kerri Kenney-Silver, and Kurt Fuller.
What do you think? Do you think FOX should have aired the six episodes? Would you watch them online or rent/purchase them?
