NBC Cancels Sean Hayes' SEAN SAVES THE WORLD

Related: SEAN SAVES THE WORLD, NBC

Deadline reports that NBC has stopped production on its freshman comedy series SEAN SAVES THE WORLD, starring Sean Hayes. Twelve episodes have screened so far out of 18; 14 have been filmed. The network will make a decision about airing the final two episodes after the Winter Olympics.

"We like Sean Hayes' show a lot," said NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt at TCA last week, also referring to The Michael J. FOX Show, which like Hayes' series, has been struggling in the ratings. "Creatively, we think they're good shows, and we're really unhappy that we can't find an audience for them in those time periods."

Hayes' other TV credits include Smash, Up All Night, Parks and Recreation, Portlandia, Will & Grace, Scrubs and more. The actor recently appeared on Broadway in 2010, opposite Kristin Chenoweth in the comedy Promises, Promises.

About SEAN SAVES THE WORLD:

Sean (Sean P. Hayes, "Will & Grace") is a divorced dad who juggles a lot - his successful but demanding career, offbeat employees, pushy mom Lorna (Linda Lavin, "Alice") and weekends with his teenage daughter, Ellie (Sami Isler). So when she moves in full-time, it's a whole new world. Never one to do anything halfway, Sean's intent on being the best dad ever, so he loads up on parenting how-to books and plans Pinterest-worthy family dinners. But it seems his company's new owner has decided Sean and his team should work longer hours, putting a damper on his homemaking plans and throwing a kink in Sean's perfectly constructed work/life balance. Ellie sees this development as a plus. She loves her dad, but he's clearly going overboard. From keeping his boss happy, employees motivated and enduring his mother's tactless "advice" to raising a smart, grounded and healthy kid, it's going to be a growing experience, to say the least. But if anyone can handle it all, it's Sean. Thomas Lennon ("Reno 911") and Echo Kellum ("Ben and Kate") also star.

Writer Victor Fresco ("Go On," "Mad About You"), director James Burrows ("Friends," "The Big Bang Theory"), Sean P. Hayes ("Hot in Cleveland," "Grimm") and Todd Milliner ("Hot in Cleveland," "Grimm") serve as executive producers. "Sean Saves the World" is a production of Universal Television and Hazy Mills Productions.
