He revealed on Twitter the other day: "I tweet with a heavy heart. NBC not moving forward with #MockingbirdLane. From producers and cast, thank you all for enthusiasm and support."
Work on the project began two years ago and, after some delays, a $10 million pilot episode was shot in June with Bryan Singer directing.
Though visually stunning, the network didn't think the concept worked. To offset the cost, they aired it as a Halloween special in October where it pulled in an average 5.4 million total viewers.
Further scripts were written, but now the NBC heads have made the final decision not to proceed. Fuller will now turn his attentions to other projects, including the currently filming straight-to-series "Hannibal" on the same network. »
