With writer’s strike threat over, FOX kills series

The Fox TV network has canceled a new series that its producers, Paramount TV, had rushed into production several months ago in order to beat an anticipated strike by TV writers, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday. According to the newspaper, six episodes of When I Grow Up from Moonlighting creator Glenn Gordon Caron had already been completed when the plug was pulled. The Times quoted unnamed insiders as saying that Fox had sought to reduce its commitment to the show “because of differences over the series’ creative direction and Caron‘s reluctance to accept input from the network.”
