LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- Production on NBC's low-rated newcomer "Kidnapped" is set to shut down in a few weeks after the serial thriller completes its 13th episode, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The trade publication quoted sources as saying that NBC and producer Sony Pictures TV have agreed to wrap up the story line about a wealthy family, headed by Timothy Hutton and Dana Delany, whose teenage son is abducted.
The show remains in the Wednesday 10 p.m. slot, and the network has committed to airing all 13 episodes. Last week, it ranked No. 67 in viewership, drawing just 6.3 million people, according to Nielsen Media Research. The premiere episode pulled in 7.6 million the week before.
It was created by Jason Smilovic, who wrote the gangster feature "Lucky Number Slevin."
At least they plan to wrap up the story! If only that would become a trend, maybe the viewers would be willing to keep taking chances on serial dramas.
I was so happy to see Jeremy Sisto get a part in this. Under the category of six degrees, he's the cousin of my former office mate, Brittany.
