Fox has canceled LA to Vegas.
Fox’s single-camera airplane comedy series LA To Vegas has been permanently grounded as the network has opted not to renew it for a second season.
As Deadline exclusively reported last week, Fox had been looking to get LA to Vegas executive producer Will Ferrell to appear in the Season 2 premiere in order to create buzz around the comedy’s return. I hear Ferrell was open to possibly guest starring in an episode next season but would not commit to doing the Season 2 opener. While not the crucial factor, that, along with the network’s reduced shelf space because of the addition of Thursday Night Football,contributed to Fox’s decision to cancel the comedy starring Dylan McDermott.
When discussing the then-pending renewal decision on the bubble freshman comedy on Fox’s upfront call last week, the network chairman Dana Walden noted that series creator/exec producer Lon Zimmet and executive producer Steve Levitan were working on Season 2 ideas and that “if we can’t find a way to make noise, we won’t do (a second season).”
