This along with Terra Nova cancellation? Feels like the sci-fi genre is dying in front of our eyes! I'm worried a bit, will there be any sci-fi show left after this sci-fi show genocide channels are doing?

And Alcatraz will probably be cancelled in the following days.

It's (almost) official, FOX cancelled Alcatraz.

Despite a pedigree including J.J. Abrams, freshman drama Alcatraz -- about San Francisco's infamous prison and its mysterious former inmates -- will not move forward. The Monday series, despite an impressive launch in January (3.3 in the demo and 10 million total viewers), the serial drama starring Sarah Jones and Lost's Jorge Garcia tumbled considerably during its 10-week run, ending with a fraction of its initial viewership: 1.5 in the demo and 4.7 million viewers

I think in this current age, TV networks have an unrealistic expectation of viewer numbers considering all the competition. Networks are too impatient and make rash decisions. FOX could have kept Alcatraz on a small episode number so it could build its audience until Fringe completed its run, then replace Fringe with Alcatraz in its old time slot.

It was uncertain until the last minute but unfortunately, Thomas Dekker new show The Secret Circle (The CW) has not be renewed for a second season because of low ratings. As well as Sarah Michelle Gellar hyped show Ringer btw (but it was expected in this case).

Gossip websites s**ks: one is reporting Ali larter is filming Josh Friedman's The Asset for FOX while it has not been picked up. Nice pics of her baby though.

Also, you won’t have to complain about Fox cancelling your favorite science fiction shows any more...since there isn't a single new science fiction (or fantasy) project on Fox new shows for fall 2012 and spring 2013.

If you like a mix between Dark Angel and Falling Skies (without aliens), this freshly picked up serie on NBC might interest you :

REVOLUTION

Quote
NBC's pitch: Our entire way of life depends on electricity. So what would happen if it just stopped working? Well, one day, like a switch turned off, the world is suddenly thrust back into the dark ages. Planes fall from the sky, hospitals shut down, and communication is impossible. And without any modern technology, who can tell us why? Now, 15 years later, life is back to what it once was long before the industrial revolution: families living in quiet cul-de-sacs, and when the sun goes down lanterns and candles are lit. Life is slower and sweeter. Or is it? On the fringes of small farming communities, danger lurks. And a young woman's life is dramatically changed when a local militia arrives and kills her father, who mysteriously—and unbeknownst to her—had something to do with the blackout. This brutal encounter sets her and two unlikely companions off on a daring coming-of-age journey to find answers about the past in the hopes of reclaiming the future. From director Jon Favreau and the fertile imaginations of J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke comes a surprising "what if" action-adventure series, where an unlikely hero will lead the world out of the dark. Literally. The series stars Billy Burke (The Twilight Saga), Tracy Spiridakos (Being Human), Anna Lise Phillips (Terra Nova), Zak Orth (Romeo + Juliet), Graham Rogers (Memphis Beat), J.D. Pardo (A Cinderella Story), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), David Lyons (The Cape), Maria Howell (The Blind Side), Tim Guinee (Iron Man) and Andrea Roth (Rescue Me).


Official Trailer:



Revolution debuts this fall and will air Mondays at 10 p.m. on NBC.

We know what happens to serialized network dramas but it must not prevent us from giving such shows a chance to get an audience; i will probably watch.

Side note : David Lyons (The Cape) plays in it smile

Kind of reminds me of the TV series Jeremiah. Only in that series a disease wiped out nearly all of humanity, mostly the adults, bringing earth back to the dark ages of technology as there was no one around to keep the various systems operating that we currently depend on. It too was set many years after the event and something occurs that puts the central character, Jeremiah, onto some kind of quest. Just goes to show there's nothing original on television any more. Just re-spinning of old tales into new.

But look what happens when somebody tries to be original. Fox comes with the axe and kills the show. Problem is that todays media( not just movie industry BTW) actively discourages innovation altogether. Its far more profitable repeating a tried and working formula over and over again.

Its good for the mostly braindead Transformers and COD audience but its hell for people who use more than two brain cells.

I have reported previously in the Summer Glau Wiki the news about Josh Friedman's new pilot for NBC, The Asset , a spy drama centered on a female lead.

Ali Larter (Heroes) has just landed the starring role in the pilot, says EW :

Quote
The show is described as a character-driven drama set in the CIA’s New York City station. Larter plays Anna King, a photojournalist well known for her photographs of “hot spots” around the world. But her real work is for the CIA; she is a globe-trotting “Human Intel Specialist,” working in the field under journalist cover.




Did you know that Ali Larter had a "steamy" sex scene with Brian Austin Green in Josh Friedman's The Asset pilot for FOX (unfortunately it was not picked up as series)?



Who knows, maybe the pilot will leak in the internet in a few months, like what happened for JJ Abrams's Wonder Woman of JF's Locke&Key?

yes this is what is wrong with television and movies. they to have original ideas. if they just keep repeating the tried and working formula over and over again what will happen is that people will get bored and stop watching television and movies. and the same goes for games and music. without innovation piracy will get worse and eventually the entertainment industry will die off. and then we will be back to telling stories by word of mouth like it was before television, movies, etc.

James Frain, Chess/Peter Fleming in The Cape, will play a recurring character in NBC's Grimm season 2, while David Lyons, The Cape himself, will play in NBC's new show Revolution.

Now NBC just have to hire Keith David and Summer Glau in their shows and they can have their The Cape Assembled, like in The Avengers biggrin

You may know that Thomas Dekker's serie on CW, The Secret Circle has not be renewed for a second season, due to low ratings.

Most surprising is Thomas announce that he never clicked with the show and is "comfortable with moving on".

Well, that's okay then. I always thought Secret Circle was just a dream John Connor experiences while being held for questioning by the resistance. biggrin

As expected, the CW has ordered to pilot Arrow, a modern adaption of the DC Comics character Green Arrow.



Quote
The project, from Berlanti Prods and Warner Bros TV, was written by Andrew Kreisberg (Warehouse 13) and Marc Guggenheim, is based on a story by Greg Berlanti and Guggenheim. All three are credited as writers/executive producers on the pilot, with David Nutter expected to direct.


FYI, David Nutter also directed TSCC's pilot.
