NBC cancels 'Southland'
NBC has canceled sophomore police drama Southland before a single episode of its second season had the chance to air, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Production was shut down on the show after six episodes, and Dateline NBC will continue to air in its place on Fridays. “I’m disappointed that NBC no longer has the time periods available to support the kind of critically-acclaimed series that was for so many years, a hallmark of their success,” said executive producer John Wells, who also produced the network’s long-running ER. “We remain extremely proud of Southland and are actively looking for another home for the series.”
