Here’s the big story on television shows killing off shows.
This season, the showrunners are moving toward making a “diet of the network.”
For “The Walking Dark” and “The Killing” creators, the problem was obvious.
“I’ve been working on these shows for 10 years and I’m still working on them,” “The Sopranos” creator Nic Pizzolatto said.
In a world where network shows like “NCIS” are killing off series, “The Last Man on Earth” was a hit and a smash.
Its second season averaged more than 1.4 million viewers per episode, and it also has been renewed for a third season.
That was a big success for Pizzoltatto, who was working on a TV show with “NCI” co-creator and executive producer Damon Lindelof, which was supposed to be the next big franchise.
The showrunner said the show was getting cancelled before it could get a second season.
“We were going to be in trouble because it was going to kill us,” Pizzo said.
“But then, we had the show and we were doing so well and we felt that we were ready to do something else.”
The Walking DEAD creator Robert Kirkman said the same thing, in an interview with CNNMoney in 2016.
“You don’t want to be at a loss for the next two seasons, and I didn’t want ‘The Last Men on Earth,’ so I said, ‘I’m going to go home and do something different,'” he said.
“But I also didn’t really know what I wanted to do with it, because we were talking about a movie.
I had never done a TV series.
And I was still talking about doing it.”
In the wake of that interview, “Nashville” creator Mitchell Hurwitz and Pizzollatto wrote the show.
When “The First 48” debuted in 2017, Pizzoliatto said he had no idea how it would turn out.
But he knew the show’s success was a sign of the times.
Pizzollolini said “The Second 48” is not just a reboot, but a reboot of sorts.
“There’s no ‘I’ in it,” he said in an ESPN interview.
Hurwitz said the series would be a new take on the series, a reboot with a lot of the same characters.
So, Hurwitz, Pizolatto, and Lindeloff have been writing a new “The Sixth Gun” that will follow the lives of the six members of a group of survivors in a fictional version of the “Nixon years.”
“The Sixth Guns” will air on CBS starting in 2019.
(The new series will be based on a different character, but not the same cast.)
Hurts said the new series is a reflection of the changing times in television.
What makes it different is that it will not be the show that comes next.
“That’s what we are doing,” Pizoliatto told ESPN. “
Hurting and Pizoletti are set to debut the show in late 2019.”
We are going to do a new series with a different premise.”
Hurting and Pizoletti are set to debut the show in late 2019.
Hurts and Piza, who have written “The Seventh Gun” and a series of other shows, have also created an adaptation of “The Twilight Zone,” which has not yet been renewed.
A version of “Twilight Zone” has been in development at NBC for years.
For the show, Piza said the writers have made a conscious decision to make the show about something different.
“[It’s] about something we are interested in, that is relevant to the current society, the current zeitgeist, and also something that we believe people really want to see,” Piza told CNNMoney.
We think it is going to make people say, ‘Wait a minute, I want to watch a television show that’s more contemporary and contemporary than what’s on TV now.’
“Hurts is not sure if he wants to do another “Twin Peaks,” or if he is looking at another genre, like “The X-Files,” which was canceled after eight seasons in 2015.
He also is not a fan of the idea of re-running the “Twins” franchise in its current format, which he described as a watered-down version of his previous show.
Hurwitz is not the only one to have thought about a different “Twinkies” franchise.
The “Tomb Raider” creators are currently working on an “Alien vs. Predator” reboot, and the first “Star Trek” movie is set for release in 2019, two years after the original “Star Fleet” movie.
