TBS Comedy 'Clipped' Canceled After One Season
TBS is cutting its ties to Clipped.
The Turner-owned cable network has canceled the freshman comedy, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Produced by Will & Grace duo David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, the multicamera comedy debuted in June to 1.4 million same-day viewers and finished its 10-episode run in August with 1.25 million, for an average of 1.2 million total viewers.
Produced by Warner Horizon, the comedy centered on a group of kids from high school who ran in different circles but all now worked together at a Charlestown, Massachusetts barbershop. The series, which went through development and was picked up to series under the title Buzzy's, marked the Will & Grace duo's latest small-screen foray, following CBS' Partners. Ashley Tisdale and George Wendt co-starred.
The comedy was developed and picked up to series in May 2014 — before Kevin Reilly took the reins of the network and started looking for edgier fare in a bid to cut through the clutter and compete with cablers including FX.
The cancellation comes as TBS has yet to debut Tribeca, its Rashida Jones-starring cop comedy produced by Steve and Nancy Carell. The cabler also quietly canceled Greg Malins' freshman entry Your Family or Mine. Its comedy roster also includes the upcoming Jason Jones and Samantha Bee scripted family comedy and animated entry American Dad and the upcoming Wrecked. On the pilot side, the cabler is developing alien comedy The Group, produced by The Office's Greg Daniels.
