NBC Cancels Andrea Martin Comedy WORKING THE ENGELS

According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has cancelled the freshman comedy WORKING THE ENGELS, starring Tony winning actress Andrea Martin (Broadway's Pippin, Young Frankenstein) and Kacey Rohl.

The series, written and created by Katie and Jane Ford, was picked up straight to series in November. The show debuted on NBC in July, delivering 2.7 million total viewers, but has slipped in the ratings in subsequent broadcasts. The show will be replaced beginning this week with new episodes of NBC's Welcome to Sweden.

About the show:

about
In this family comedy, created by Katie Ford ("Miss Congeniality," "Desperate Housewives") and Jane Cooper Ford ("Listen Missy," "Material World"), a family of ne'er-do-wells must band together to keep their heads above water when their father and breadwinner passes away, leaving them a mountain of debt.

The Engels must all go to work running Dad's storefront law firm, with one minor problem - daughter Jenna Engel (Kacey Rohl) is the only one who is qualified to practice law. Unfortunately for Jenna, this also means taking on her eccentric relatives as co-workers. Ceil (Andrea Martin), the self-absorbed and overly dramatic but fiercely protective mother works as the firm's paralegal; Sandy (Azura Skye), a former pill-popper who has never worked a day in her life, is the receptionist and first line of defense at the firm; and Jimmy (Ben Arthur), a petty criminal and bad boy who is utterly devoted to his family, is the firm's investigator. Jenna, the youngest sibling and "good one," becomes the unlikely family patriarch, running the law firm and keeping her crazy family together.
It's not pretty, but it's family.
