Bad season for kiwis on American TV

Kiwi actor Cliff Curtis has had his new drama series Missing axed by the ABC network in the States.

The series, which features Ashley Judd in the lead role, started promisingly enough before ratings began to drop over the 10 episode season.

The bad news continued this week for NZ talent, with Sam Neil’s series Alcatraz also cut by its network after just one season.

Add to that Rhys Darby’s axed sitcom How To Be A Gentleman and all-in-all it hasn’t been the most promising TV season for kiwis in America.

Let’s hope we have a change of  fortunes by the time Madeleine Sami’s Super City remake hits American screens.
