NBC Cancels “Laura,” CBS Skips Nancy Drew”

Ahead of the network upfront presentations next week, some last minute tidying up is taking place.

First up, NBC has made a decision on their final bubble show with the Debra Messing-led “Mysteries of Laura” being cancelled after two seasons. The show was a steady performer, averaging a 1.5 rating and 8.8 million viewers overall for the network.

NBC is also reportedly still in negotiations over picking up the “Cruel Intentions” series which won’t be a part of the the new TV season but now seems to be aiming for a Summer 2017 bow.

Meanwhile, CBS has passed on the pilot for “Nancy Drew,” a contemporary update of the classic girl-detective stories starring Sarah Shahi as a grown up Nancy who is now an NYPD Detective. CBS Television Studios is now seeking other prospective buyers for the show.

Finally, Freeform has cancelled its rehab drama “Recovery Road,” one of two dramas the channel unveiled this past January – the other being “Shadowhunters” which has already been renewed.
