‘All About The Washingtons’ Canceled By Netflix After One Season

  • Deadline
Netflix has opted not to renew for a second season All About the Washingtons, its multi-camera comedy series starring Joseph “Rev Run” Simmons & Justine Simmons. The decision comes two months after the release of the series’ 10-episode first season, which didn’t seem to get a lot of traction.

Created by Jeremy Bronson (The Mayor), ​All About The Washingtons had a twisty road to the screen. The pitch originally landed at ABC in fall 2016 with a put pilot commitment. It did not get a pilot order, but, believing in the concept and the talent, producing companies Amblin TV and ABC Studios pulled together resources and used the penalty money to finance a pilot presentation. The presentation was well received by ABC brass but the broadcast network only picked up three new comedy series that year, including Bronson’s The Mayor, and got out of the multi-camera comedy business all together.

CEO Neil Peplow on Aftrs' remit and the return of discipline-specific MAs

Aftrs CEO Neil Peplow.

Aftrs' new five-year strategy was shaped by what the school calls the most comprehensive and up-to-date national industry skills survey ever undertaken. The report was supplied by Screen Audience Research Australia (Sara) who undertook nationwide research, consulting with more than 500 Australian practitioners.

The survey found skills gaps in the areas of screen business, new technologies, and script coverage, among others. Sara CEO Peter Drinkwater pointed out that "the industry is rapidly changing: tighter budgets and greater time pressures mean less acceptance of failure. The role of training is therefore paramount, with 90 percent of the industry wanting access to more training opportunities in the future..

An unexplained series of events occur on a Vegas tram; unexplained until the CSIs are on the case, that is. Nick (George Eads) returns from Hawaii after a seminar to find the joke's on him. The new boss, Db Russell (Ted Danson) lies on the tram floor and Nick thinks he's just a Db, which he is. Db by name, but not a real Db!
