Fox (Essentially) Cancels Us & Them


US AND THEM: Gavin (Jason Ritter, L) and Stacey (Alexis Bledel, R) are a pair of young lovers whose path to happily-ever-after is complicated by the screwed-up circus of people closest to them in the new comedy US AND THEM premiering this fall on FOX. ©2013 Fox Broadcasting Co. Cr: David Giesbrecht/FOXFox is breaking up with the long-distance-romance comedy Us & Them.

The network, unhappy with the quality of scripts as they were coming in, is basically cancelling the midseason sitcom, TVLine has learned.

Fox still plans to air the six already-produced episodes but will not move forward with the rest of the series’ 13-episode order.

Us & Them is a single-camera adaptation of the British Gavin & Stacey, in which two very different people try to make a long-distance relationship work. The American version’s cast includes Jason Ritter (Parenthood), Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls) and Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle).

The cast and crew went on an early hiatus last week; that hiatus will now become permanent.
