What Does The FOX Say, CANCELLED: 3 More Freshman Series Axed

Pour out another drink for fallen friends, FOX continues to cut the dead weight from their television line up. It's hard out there for original programming, especially on the FOX network who always seem to have a habit of airing shows out of order and messing with their scheduling (moving shows around to nights where they make NO sense).


We wrote yesterday about several shows that were nixed, and today it looks like three more have joined the dead:

Making History: The series follows three friends from two different centuries as they try to balance the thrill of time travel with the mundane concerns of their present-day lives. It's billed as "a rollicking historical adventure and a contemporary comedy about love, friendship and trying to fit into an increasingly complex and impersonal world".  Lasted: 1 season

Son Of Zorn: The series is about Zorn, a barbarian warrior from the fictional South Pacific island of Zephyria who moves to California to reconnect with his ex-wife and teenage son, Alan.  Lasted: 1 season

APB: A tech billionaire is given control over a Chicago Police district, hoping to close the file of a murder of a close friend and his company's CFO. The story is loosely based on the New York Times Magazine article "Who Runs the Streets of New Orleans?" Lasted: 1 season

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool. 

Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 

 Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 

 Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
