ABC decides to end Mel Gibson Holocaust miniseries

Mel GibsonAfter Mel Gibson allegedly let loose an anti-Semitic rant while he was being arrested for DUI last week, many were speculating to what degree the tirade was going to hurt the Oscar-winning director's career. Well, the first piece of evidence may be in: ABC has decided to drop the Holocaust-themed miniseries it was developing with Gibson's production company.

When pressed by the Wall Street Journal for a reason why they decided to end the project, which was based on the diaries of a Jewish woman from the Netherlands who was sheltered from the Nazis by her non-Jewish boyfriend, a network rep told the paper that they're dumping the project because they haven't yet received a script after two years of development. But the timing is interesting, isn't it?

Complete SavagesAnd I'm not talking about those PSA's he filmed for the L.A.P.D. that are now popping up after his arrest for drunk driving over the weekend, nor am I talking about Lethal Weapon. I'm talking about a couple of episodes of the short-lived ABC sitcom Complete Savages a few years ago. Gibson appeared as an L.A.P.D. officer in funny fake PSAs for the department, talking about motorcycle safety, wearing the right equipment, etc. Gibson produced the sitcom too.

Anyone have those spots on tape or DVD and can upload them to YouTube?
