AMC cancels ‘Wenn’ series

'The Lot' to replace critics' fave

NEW YORK — American Movie Classics said it has canceled its original series “Remember WENN” after four seasons.

“While ‘Remember WENN’ has been a tremendous success on many levels, it has not generated the kind of audience required to make the show viable,” said Marc Juris, AMC’s senior VP, original programming, packaging and production.

“Remember WENN,” a critics’ favorite, will be replaced by a new original series, “The Lot.” Though it has canceled production for “Remember WENN,” next season, AMC will run the 56 episodes of the series in their original broadcast order.

“The Lot,” set in 1937, tells the story of Sylver Pictures, a small-time movie studio with big-time dreams. The show will feature real gossip of the era taken from the pages of Hollywood’s most successful fan magazines that is woven throughout the fictional stories.

“The Lot” is scheduled to premiere in December.

The commercial-free AMC can be seen in 68 million homes. The cable web is owned by Rainbow Programming, the programming arm of Cablevision Systems Corp.
