We describe this journey as bizarre just because few shows have had the trajectory that this one has. Originally, the show (executive produced by Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone) aired on the aforementioned network, but for season 2 it was shifted at first over to the Paramount Network. It was meant to be paired there with Heathers, the much-anticipated reimagining of the classic movie. However, things got chaotic there when Paramount delayed the series due to recent horrific shootings (it has since been pulled outright). Nobodies ended up airing without much support there, and eventually moved back to TV Land. Its ratings did recover, but apparently not enough to get the show back for a second season.
We liked the premise of the show very much — comedy writers trying to land some famous people for a feature script that they’ve been working on. It feels like the sort of story many in the entertainment business can relate to, but it just couldn’t find the audience that it needed. Hopefully, though, there are going to be more shows coming in the future for the cast (Hugh Davidson, Larry Dorf, and Rachel Ramras) alongside McCarthy and Falcone as producers. TV Land does in general still have a number of good comedies, including of course Younger — a show that either you watch and love or the show someone is probably telling you to watch because you’ll love it. We’ve really heard both from people at this point.
If anything else does come out about Nobodies, we’ll be sure to let you know.
