ABC Cancels LUCKY 7 After Two Episodes
The first series of the 2013-14 season has fallen.
ABC has cancelled its freshman lotto comedy Lucky 7 after just two episodes, it was announced today. The news is somewhat expected, after the second episode on Tuesday earned a meager .7 in the key adult 18-49 demo. Deadline has confirmed that the network will slot Scandal reruns in LUCKY's Tuesday timeslot - with no plans to air the already produced episodes.
"Lucky 7" stars Summer Bishil ("Towelhead") as Samira Lashari, Lorraine Bruce ("Eden Lake") as Denise Dibinksy, Alex Castillo as Bianca Clemente, Christine Evangelista as Mary Lavecchia, Stephen Louis Grush ("Detroit 1-8-7") as Nicky Korzak, Matt Long ("Private Practice") as Matt Korzak, Anastasia Phillips ("Stoked") as Leanne Maxwell, Luis Antonio Ramos ("The Ruins") as Antonio Clemente and Isiah Whitlock, Jr. ("The Wire") as Bob Harris.
"Lucky 7," based on the British hit "The Syndicate," was written by David Zabel ("ER," "Detroit 1-8-7") and Jason Richman ("Detroit 1-8-7") and is executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey, Zabel and Richman. The pilot was directed by Paul McGuigan. "Lucky 7" is produced by ABC Studios and Amblin Television and is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format with a 5.1 channel
