Lincoln Rhyme & Perfect Harmony cancelled at NBC
According to TheWrap, NBC has officially decided not to give Russell Hornsby’s crime drama Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector and Bradley Whitford’s musical comedy Perfect Harmony a series renewal. The cancellation news comes after four months since Perfect Harmony had its series finale last January while the series adaptation of the Bone Collector ended its run in March.
Based on Jeffery Deaver’s The Bone Collector novels, Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector followed the story of a legendary forensic criminologist named Lincoln Rhyme, who was seriously injured during his hunt for the diabolic serial killer known as the Bone Collector. Called back into action when the killer re-emerges, Lincoln forms a unique partnership with Amelia Sachs, a young beat cop who helps him hunt the deadly mastermind while also taking on the most high-profile cases in the NYPD.
The series starred Russell Hornsby (Grimm) as Lincoln Rhyme, Arielle Kebbel (Ballers) as Amelia Sachs, Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) as Rick Sellitto, Courtney Grosbeck as Rae Sachs, Ramses Jimenez as Eric Ortiz, Brooke Lyons as Kate, Tate Ellington as Felix, Jaidon Walls as Camden and Claire Coffee as Danielle.
Perfect Harmony followed the story of a rural church that gets the director it never thought it needed when a salty, Ivy League music professor (Whitford) stumbles through their door. It was created by Lesley Wake Webster, who is also set as the series’ writer and executive producer. Jason Winer and Jon Radler of Small Dog Picture Company will executive produce along with Adam Anders.
The series also starred Pitch Perfect alum Anna Camp along with Tymberlee Hill, Rizwan Manji, Will Greenberg, Geno Segers and Spencer Allport.
