Lifetime cancels ‘Against the Wall’

Femme cop drama drew low ratings

Lifetime has canceled first-year drama series “Against the Wall.”

With only 1.6 million viewers tuning in weekly for the 13-episode run, the femme-skewing cabler believed the show didn’t have much of a future going forward.

Skein, from creator Annie Brunner and Universal Cable Prods., starred Rachael Carpani as a Chicago cop who joins the department’s internal affairs division. Co-stars included Treat Williams, Kathy Baker and Andrew Walker.

“Against the Wall” drew only 1.8 million for its premiere episode July 31, with “Drop Dead Divas” as a lead-in.

Lifetime, under the helm of Nancy Dubuc, has ordered a handful of pilots recently, including the Renee Zellweger-produced “Cinnamon Girl,” Eric Stoltz and Ally Sheedy in “Modern Love,” and Neve Campbell in “Sworn to Silence,” which will run as a telepic.

Also coming in 2012 is the Jennifer Love Hewitt starrer “The Client List,” set for a 10-episode order.
