The show, based on the 1999 series of the same name, is in the middle of a ten episode order. Five segs have already aired, with five left to go.
News was revealed by “10 Things” exec producer Carter Covington on Twitter: “Sad news… ABC Family canceled the show. Thanks to our amazing fans. You are the reason I do this.”
Covington (“Greek”) exec produced the show with John Ziffren and Robin Schiff. ABC originally picked up 10 episodes of the series last year, and ordered an additional 10 for this year.
“10 Things” stars Lindsey Shaw, Meaghan Jette Martin, Larry Miller, Ethan Peck, Nicholas Braun and Dana Davis. Like the movie, “10 Things” is a contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew.”
Here’s what Variety’s Brian Lowry had to say about the show last year: “Filled with pop-culture references, disarmingly edgy and smartly cast, the series appears to continue a solid roll for the cable network that was once an albatross around the neck of parent Disney.”
Gil Junger, who directed the film, also helmed the TV version.
