USA Network is pulling the plug early. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has cancelled plans for the TV series American Rust.
Based on the novel by Philipp Meyer, the drama follows “a sheriff and the rise and fall of a crime-riddled community in a small Pennsylvania Rust Belt town.”
USA Network gave a straight-to-series order to American Rust last year. However, they allegedly cancelled plans for the period drama because of difficulties with casting the lead role.
