ABC Family is cancelling freshman series Nine Lives of Chloe King, sources say.

The show was based on the book series by Liz Braswell about a girl who discovers that she is a descendant of an ancient race with cat-like powers.

The news comes as ABC Family is expected to order a pilot from Gilmore Girls writer Amy Sherman-Palladino called Strut, about a Las Vegas showgirl (take that Pat Robertson!) who marries a Texan and becomes a instructor for a misfit high school drill team. Network also expected to order an action-drama pilot Intercept about college crime fighters.
