FOX cuts episode order for The Return of Jezebel James
This is what's known, in network-speak, as "we really don't have any confidence in your show."
FOX has cut the episode order for the new comedy The Return of Jezebel James. The original order was for 13 episodes, but now the network has reduced the order to 7. The network says that they always planned the show to be a midseason show and seven episodes is all they need right now, but it can't be a good sign. This follows news that the producers had changed the show's setting from Hoboken to Brooklyn because they "wanted her to have a loft instead of a brownstone."
The show stars Parker Posey as an editor who asks her younger sister to have a baby for her. The show costars Lauren Ambrose, Kimberly Fox, Scott Cohen, and Ron McLarty, and is produced by Amy Sherman and Daniel Palladino, who did Gilmore Girls and produced several episodes of Roseanne.
