Detroit 1-8-7 Gets 86ed
ABC confirmed yesterday that Detroit 1-8-7 has been cancelled. I'm disappointed with this news.
I continue to believe that if they made a drama from the beginning, instead of starting it as a "fake documentary"/comedy, then the show would've been a tremendous success. The writers and producers tried to retool it in a hurry, but they just weren't able to.
I simply hope that this serves as a learning opportunity to every television executive as well as every writer in the business. Murder can make for a compelling drama. However, it makes for a terrible comedy.
