‘Nice Guy’ halted at ABC

Project will be redeveloped for midseason or 2007-08

There’s no more “Mr. Nice Guy” at ABC — at least not for the fall.

Alphabet has decided to shut down production on the half-hour comedy pilot starring Diedrich Bader (“Drew Carey”). A table read had already taken place, but nothing had been taped.

Project, from Touchstone Television and Brillstein Grey, will be redeveloped for either midseason or 2007-08.

Jesff Astrof wrote “Mr. Nice Guy,” which revolves around a well-meaning man who always ends up looking bad even when trying to do the right thing. Rena Sofer and Kevin Weisman had also been set to star.
