USA Network has cancelled its modern western drama “Damnation” after one season, while at the same time scrapping the in the works “American Rust” just two months after issuing a straight-to-series order.
Logan Marshall-Green starred in “Damnation” which was set in 1930s middle America. Season one averaged a 0.18 rating in the 18-49 demo according to Nielsen Live + Same Day numbers and 682,000 total viewers.
USA ordered a straight-to-series adaptation of Philipp Meyer’s novel “American Rust” in November. Set in a small Pennsylvania rust belt town, it explores the rise and fall of a crime-riddled community as seen through the eyes of a sheriff with a history of violence.
