CBS cancels The Waterfront
I know, I know, you're saying, Bob, what the hell is Waterfront?
It's (or it was) a new political drama starring Joe Pantoliano as the mayor of Providence, Rhode Island. The network ordered 13 episodes of the Warner Brothers show...but pulled the plug on the show before any of the episodes aired. The reason? CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler said she was "unhappy with the show's creative direction."
Ouch. Since other Warner Brothers shows are doing either poorly or so-so (Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, The Nine, The Class), this hasn't been a great fall for the studio.
I actually have a friend who worked on the show, so I'll try to get some info about it what happened.
