TNT cancels ‘Memphis Beat’

Series halted after two seasons

TNT is no longer walking the “Memphis Beat,” canceling the Jason Lee starrer after two seasons.

The decision doesn’t leave exec producers Joshua Harto and Liz Garcia out of work: The pair this week sold an hourlong drama, 1960s Vegas-set “The Meadows,” to NBC via Stuber Pictures and Universal TV.

“Beat” finished its second 10-episode season in August. It drew 4 million viewers for its finale, its highest total since its series premiere in June 2010, but that wasn’t enough to save the series, which drew 3 million for its season-two premiere this summer and stayed around that number most of the remainder of its run.
