ABC Cancels Reef Break After One Season
According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC is cancelling the action drama Reef Break after just one season. This marks the second “summer” show cancelled by the network after Grand Hotel, which similarly met the axe after its first year. Reef Break received a straight-to-series order by the network, but the ratings simply didn’t cut it. According to the report, just under two million viewers tuned in, and managed just a 0.4 rating after three days in its key demographic.
Reef Break was a sexy, action-packed, one-hour drama that starred Poppy Montgomery as Cat Chambers, a thief-turned-fixer for the governor of a stunning and seductive Pacific Island paradise. Impulsive, reckless and irresistible, Cat’s less-than-perfect past gives her an instinctive gift for understanding crime and criminals as she becomes enmeshed in fast-paced, high octane adventures and island intrigue.
Cat’s reappearance made waves for old friends, enemies, and lovers, including an FBI agent ex-husband, her imprisoned crime boss and a police detective lover who is in over his head. Each episode will be a character-driven cocktail of crime, surf, sex, and sunshine, and for Cat, the lines between work and play have never been blurrier.
