‘The InBetween’ Canceled By NBC After One Season

  • Deadline
NBC is closing the loop on its new spring-summer 2019 scripted series by cancelling freshman drama The InBetween.

The news is not surprising. The InBetween, starring Harriet Dyer, did not debut until after the end of the 2018-19 broadcast season. It was the lowest-rated NBC summer 2019 series in Live+Same Day ratings, something for which delayed viewing bumps could not compensate.

The InBetween‘s core creative team already has moved on to another project. In a competitive situation with multiple networks bidding, CBS in September landed with penalty Queens, a police drama from The InBetween creator/executive producer Moira Kirland, executive producer Matt Gross and studio Universal TV, where Gross is under an overall deal.

The InBetween joins NBC’s new midseason 2019 series, comedy Abby’s and dramas The Village and The Enemy Within, which also were canceled after one season.

The InBetween centered on Cassie Bedford (Dyer), who was born with a rare ability.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Morris Chestnut

Morris Chestnut is well-known for making women’s hearts pass out since he starred in his role as the college hopeful Ricky in the Boyz in the Hood classic over two decades ago.

William Shatner Says He Wants To Be In Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek

Patrick Stewart is set to return to Star Trek to reprise his role as Jean-Luc Picard in the upcoming Picard TV series. But would the franchise’s other most beloved Enterprise captain be up for heading back to Starleet once again?

William Shatner last played James Tiberius Kirk 25 years ago in 1994’s Star Trek: Generations, but over the years he’s said he’d be interested in making a comeback and now, he’s doubled down on that. And specifically, the actor’s said that he’d like to have a role in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Star Trek movie, which is starting to turn a lot of heads.

See the video below for what Shatner had to say:

Quentin Tarantino Explains Why He Likes Star Trek More Than Star Wars

The Star Wars franchise is chock full of legendary actors. Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, Ewan McGregor, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Natalie Portman, Lupita Nyong’o, James Earl Jones, Samuel L. Jackson and countless more have all contributed their talents to the series at one point or another.

Still, Quentin Tarantino maintains that Star Trek has one legendary superstar that instantly makes it better than its primary competition: William Shatner. When describing why he finds the former to be so much better than the Lucasfilm projects, the Academy Award-winning director said the following:

“I’m a big fan of the show Star Trek. I really like it a lot, but my portal into that show is William Shatner. I love William Shatner on Star Trek. I love his performance as James T. Kirk. That is my connection. That is my umbilical cord. It’s why I

Quentin Tarantino May Bring William Shatner Back For His Star Trek Movie

It’s typical for a reporter to ask a famous actor or director, “what comes next?” Well, that seems to be especially true in the case of Quentin Tarantino, who could possibly be making his last venture into theaters next weekend with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

But there’s a loophole, an asterisk you might say, in the rumors of his impending retirement: the controversial Star Trek film he might be tackling next.

And in a recent interview, the Inglorious Basterds director’s been more than vocal about the project’s pre-production phase. From confirming and defending its R-rating, to defining it as “Pulp Fiction in space,” all this teasing’s certainly got us drooling. But there’s something else that fans of the original series will be especially fond of.

Casting has always been an important part of Tarantino’s productions, and he often incorporates performers from films that’ve inspired him.

Tarantino's Star Trek Will Be Pulp Fiction in Space with a Gangster Element

Tarantino's Star Trek Will Be Pulp Fiction in Space with a Gangster Element
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is hitting theaters next weekend. It serves as Quentin Tarantino's 9th film as a director, and it could be his last original work. When his promotional tour is over, he is turning his attentions to Star Trek with an original idea that he conceived and turned into JJ. Abrams. He still doesn't know if he will direct it, but if he does, it will be his final movie as a director. It will also be rated R. Contrary to belief, he is also referring to it as Pulp Fiction in space.

Quentin Tarantino is a little upset with Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty in the new movie franchise version of Star Trek. About being Pulp Fiction in space, or what some are calling The Wild Bunch in space, the filmmaker says this.
