'Rita Rocks' canceled
Lifetime drops Nicole Sullivan comedy after two seasonsLifetime has canceled "Rita Rocks" after two seasons.
The multi-camera comedy starring Nicole Sullivan was picked up by the network's former Lifetime entertainment president Susanne Daniels in a deal that gave the network significant ownership.
The show, produced by MRC, was ordered as a companion to the off-network comedy "Reba" and the original plan was to amass enough episodes to strip it.
Lifetime was recently put under the oversight of A&E president and CEO Abbe Raven as part of combining the A&E and Lifetime assets in a new venture.
