USA's Dare Me Cancelled After 1 Season

USA's Dare Me Cancelled After 1 Season
USA Network is giving Dare Me fans something to… not cheer about, cancelling the drama after just one season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. But all hope is not lost, as the Netflix co-production is reportedly being shopped around to other outlets.

Based on Megan Abbott’s 2012 novel of the same name, Dare Me peeled back the curtain on competitive high school cheerleading, exposing the sport’s dark — and apparently crime-riddled — underbelly.

We shared the trailer for Funny Story earlier this month.

Starring Matthew Glave, Jana Winternitz, and Emily Bett Rickards, the film follows Walter, an aging TV star, and his relationship with women, most especially with is sometimes-estranged daughter, Nic (Winternitz).

'Homecoming' Executive Dawn Olmstead Talks Hollywood's Podcast Gold Rush

Dawn Olmstead's brightly lit corner office has almost none of the usual trappings of a Hollywood work lair. There's no desk, nor is there a computer or bank of TVs airing what's come of the 50-plus series the president of Universal Cable Productions (scripted) and Wilshire Studios (unscripted) has in active development. And that, Olmstead says, is by design.

Before shifting to the executive side in 2014, the longtime producer (Prison Break, Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce) had grown accustomed to set life, where her iPhone was command central. So she created a space to foster collaboration. An assistant ...

How 'Dietland' Intersects With the #MeToo Movement
AMC's new series from prolific writer-producer Marti Noxon (UnREAL, Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is just the latest TV show to be influenced by the #MeToo movement.
