Storyline

Produced by evangelist Pat Robertson's CBN Network, "Another Life" initially emerged as a daily religious serial, which attempted to add a touch of "Christian morality" to traditional soap stories. Centering on the beleaguered Davidson family of Kingsley, Virginia, "Another Life" faced low-ratings and soon segued into more typical soapy fare, as murders, kidnappings, and an extremely bizarre story about a demonic cult leader highlighted its final years.

why it died
29 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

there are a number of reasons why the show died. One, they did come up with some really strange, direction-less story lines. two, the ratings were never all that good, in part, because they were a religious program and (I don't think) they never really reflected LIFE. a lot of the characters on the show weren't written as real people. Third, and most important, Pat Robertson lost interest in the show just like he lost interest in all his other TV ventures. Once, he proclaimed that his network would help to usher in the coming of Christ. He also proclaimed his Christian Broadcasting Network was going to be a Christian alternative to the standard fare at the other networks. I guess he decided that Fox could do a better job of it when he sold it years ago. it did make him very wealthy.
