NBC's 'Day One' reduced again
Show now set to air as a two-hour movieNBC's midseason drama "Day One" is shrinking even further and will now air as a two-hour movie.
The show, chronicling life on Earth after a global catastrophe, originally ordered for 13 episodes, was reduced in September to a four-hour miniseries: the two-hour pilot plus two episodes.
At NBC's portion of TCA, the network's primetime entertainment president Angela Bromstad said that "Day One" is not going to shoot more episodes beyond the two-hour pilot.
The pilot will still air after the Winter Olympics as was the plan for the "Day One" mini, and NBC still keeps the door open to picking up more episodes for next season should the pilot does well.
"Day One," from UMS and writer Jesse Alexander, stars Julie Gonzalo, David Lyons, Carly Pope, Adam Campbell, Thekla Reuten, Derek Mio, Addison Timlin and Catherine Dent.
