TV News: Kings, Fist, CBS, Rise, Amy

Of Kings and Prophets
ABC has canceled its sex-laced Biblical straight-to-series drama “Of Kings and Prophets”. Plans for the show’s remaining episodes yet to air are currently being evaluated, but they will not air on ABC.

The series debuted to a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49 and just 3.3 million viewers. It dipped to just a 0.5 rating and 2.4 million viewers in its second outing. It follows on from a bad season for ABC which has been struggling to launch shows with failures such as “Wicked City,” “Blood and Oil,” “The Family,” and “The Muppets”. [Source: The Live Feed]

Iron Fist
Though we’ve known it for about a month, Marvel has only now finally confirmed that Finn Jones has been cast as the titular hero in “Iron Fist,” its upcoming fourth series with Netflix. Still no word as yet when a potential air date for the series will be other than sometime in 2017.

CBS has announced the premiere dates for its Summer series with the new dark satire “BrainDead” set to premiere June 13th, its Boston set murder mystery “American Gothic” to debut June 22nd, and the second season of “Zoo” to kick off July 5th. [Source: The Live Feed]

High Rise
Not to be confused with the Ben Wheatley film of the same name, HBO has put in development drama series “High Rise” from “Blue Valentine” co-writer Cami DeLavigne.

The character drama is set in the world of high end New York architecture that follows a brilliant, but struggling architect who gets seduced by a billionaire’s daughter as she takes him under her wing and launches his career into the world of celebrity architecture. [Source: Deadline]
