ABC Family drops ’10 Things’

Network decides not to renew teen show

ABC Family has decided not to pick up any more episodes of its teen skein “10 Things I Hate About You.”

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.”
