Fox has cancelled ‘Back To You’ – the sit-com taking place in a fictional Pittsburgh TV station. The moves comes as a surprise to producers but some trade mags suggest that the talent on and off the screen make the production costs so high that the high ratings don’t mean much. (FWIW the show got better ratings than ‘Til Death’ which serves as lead in.) According to the article in the PG, most of the networks were interested in the program when it was being created. The producers may attempt to pitch it to another network, but hopes for success may be dim.
No word on whether this move could be related to last fall’s writer’s strike
