Production shuts down on Sean Hayes’ sitcom

Sean Hayes’ U.S. TV series Sean Saves The World has been cancelled by bosses at America’s NBC network, just weeks before he was due to shoot the final episodes of the season. The former Will & Grace actor landed his own self-titled sitcom last year (13), but production has now been shut down before the end of the run.
Production on the show, which features Hayes as a divorced gay father, ended on Tuesday (28Jan14) with four of the total 18 episodes still left to shoot, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
A number of familiar faces were slated to appear in the final episodes of the first season, including Portia de Rossi, Guy Pearce, and Hayes’ former Will & Grace co-star Megan Mullally.
