Lifetime is erasing “Missing” from the lineup.
Women’s network has decided not to order a fourth season of the procedural, starring Vivica A. Fox as an FBI agent whose partner has psychic abilities.
Cancellation comes despite ratings increases in key female demos from the previous season. A statement from the network said simply that the series “ran its course.”
Debra Martin Chase served as exec producer.
Lionsgate TV-produced “Missing” was the last remaining scripted drama from Lifetime’s previous executive regime. Entertainment topper Susanne Daniels pulled the plug on the long-running “Strong Medicine” soon after she joined the network.
Cabler’s next drama, “Angela’s Eyes,” follows another FBI agent, this one blessed with the ability to tell when people are lying. Series from “Crash” producer Tom Nunan and Dan McDermott was greenlit earlier this year (Daily Variety, Jan. 11) and will premiere in July. Half-hour laffer “Lovespring International,” from Lionsgate and Eric McCormack, also will bow this summer.
