‘Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist’ Cancelled After 2 Seasons. Producers Shopping It To Other Broadcasters
Can I just say Nooooooooo! Damn you NBC… ‘Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist‘ has been cancelled after 2 seasons it has been announced. However, Lionsgate Television, which co-produces the series with Universal, are said to be “aggressively” shopping it around to other broadcasters outside of NBCUniversal.
‘Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist’ stars Jane Levy (‘Suburgatory’) as Zoey Clarke, a whip-smart computer coder forging her way in San Francisco. After an unusual event, she starts to hear the innermost wants and desires of the people around her through songs. At first, she questions her own sanity but soon realises this unwanted curse may just be an incredibly wonderful gift (which also gave them an excuse for big musical numbers!)
Alongside Levy, the series stars Skylar Astin (‘Pitch Perfect’), Alex Newell (‘Glee’), John Clarence Stewart (‘What/If’), Golden Globe winner Peter Gallagher (‘The O.C.’) and Oscar winner Mary Steenburgen (‘The Last Man on Earth’) along with special guest star Lauren Graham (‘Gilmore Girls’).
The series is produced by Lionsgate and Universal Television in association with the Tannenbaum Company, Feigco Entertainment and Universal Music Group.
“In a world where finding loyal and passionate audiences is never easy, we believe there must be a home for this great, award-winning show with a passionate and dedicated following,” Lionsgate spokesperson commented.
There was some talk of ‘Zoey’s possibly moving to NBCUniversal streaming service Peacock, but it seems that option is now off the table. Let us hope that either Netflix or one of the other streaming services is prepared to step up…
‘Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist‘ airs on E4 (allegedly…) in the UK, although we are still waiting on Season 2…
