Feed the Beast canceled

Feed the Beast has been canceled after one season, EW has confirmed. The news comes precisely one month after the AMC crime drama’s 10-episode freshman run ended.

“We have great respect and admiration for the entire team associated with Feed the Beast, starting with Clyde Phillips, David Schwimmer, Jim Sturgess, and our studio partner, Lionsgate,” AMC said in a statement Friday. “We are thankful for the opportunity to collaborate with them and appreciative of their talents, dedication and care. Unfortunately, the show simply didn’t achieve the results needed to move forward with a second season.”

Feed the Beast starred David Schwimmer (The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story) and Jim Sturgess (Close to the Enemy, Cloud Atlas) as Tommy Moran and Dion Patras, two best friends who make a last-ditch effort to follow their dreams by opening a New York restaurant. The actors have yet to address the cancelation.

Deadline first reported the news on Friday.
