‘Southland’ and ‘Monday Mornings’ Cancelled by TNT

TNT has pulled the plug on not just one but two of their dramas. At the end of last week TV Line reported here and here that both Southland and Monday Mornings have both been canceled.

As most TV viewers know, ‘Southland’ got its start on NBC, airing there for one season and followed up with four more season on TNT, but now the show is coming to an end. The network had this to say about the cancellation, “we are enormously proud of ‘Southland’, which stands as one of the best police dramas ever made. Executive producers John Wells, Chris Chulack and Jonathan Lisco, along with creator Ann Biderman and our partners at Warner Bros. Television, have given us five seasons of powerful, unforgettable storytelling, for which we are deeply grateful. We also want to thank the amazing cast for their impassioned, no-holds-barred performances, and the production team for their tenacity shooting on the streets of real-world Los Angeles. We wish everyone associated with Southland the very best.”

As for ‘Monday Mornings’, the network had this share, “we are extremely grateful to executive producers David E. Kelly, Bill D’Elia and Dr. Sanjay Gupta, on whose novel the series was based. They crafted a unique and powerfully moving drama full of memorable situations and characters brought to life by a terrific ensemble cast. Unfortunately the show never built its audience enough to warrant its continuation.”
