'Charlie's Angels' and 'Memphis Beat' Canceled


ABC shut down production for its reboot show starring Minka Kelly after airing four episodes, while TNT pulled the plug on the Jason Lee cop drama after two seasons.

ABC's "Charlie's Angels" failed to experience the success enjoyed by its original version. After airing just four episodes, the network has shut down production for the remake project starring Minka Kelly, Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh as the new angels.

A representative for the alphabet has confirmed the cancellation. The series will continue to air on Thursdays at 8 P.M. with an unknown number of episodes while the network tries to figure out another show to replace the doomed freshman.

Ironically, the decision to axe the Drew Barrymore-produced crime action series was taken just a day after it showed a rating growth for the first time. The fourth episode which aired last Thursday, October 13 was up a tenth of a point to 6 million viewers and a 1.3 rating in 18-49 demo.

Also getting the boot is TNT's sophomore "Memphis Beat". The cable network has decided not to pick up a third season of the cop drama which has Jason Lee on the lead. "The network thanks everyone involved in the production of 'Memphis Beat' for their work on the series, including the great cast and crew. TNT wishes everyone the best," so the network says in a statement.
