The first cancellation — and first New Obscurity — of the 2013-2014 has been revealed: ABC’s Lucky 7, pulled today after just two episodes had been aired. The drama series, about a group of gas station employees who win the lottery, was adapted from a British series called The Syndicate. It premiered on Tuesday, September 24th to historically low ratings for ABC and sank even further this week with its second episode.
According to Deadline.com, production has not been shut down completely. No word yet on how many episodes have been completed or whether they will be aired at some point.
Congratulations to anyone who placed odds on Lucky 7 being the first cancellation of the new season. ABC did such a wonderful job promoting the series that I was barely even aware of its existence.
