NBC pulls 9/11 miniseries

NBC is putting the kibosh on its ambitious eight-hour 9/11 miniseries from scribe Graham Yost and Imagine Television. The decision comes late in the game: Scripts for the project had been completed and pre-production had begun. Indeed, barely a month ago, Peacock execs made a big deal of the mini at their presentation to advertisers, touting the involvement of exec producers Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and David Nevins. But according to industry insiders familiar with the network’s decision, financial considerations – as well as competitive pressure from a rival 9/11 project at ABC – caused NBC to rethink its project, which was to have been a co-production between Imagine and NBC Universal Television Studio.
