ABC Family and I are going to have issues. I can deal with a lot, but when you cancel my favorite show, we have issues. Jane by Design has been cancelled. And well for it, you suck ABC Family. According to The Hollywood Reporter…
After renewing a slew of scripted series, including Switched at Birth and Baby Daddy, the cable network opted not to bring back the fashion drama that starred Erica Dasher and Andie MacDowell for a second season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Jane By Design, which centered on high schooler Jane Quimby (Dasher) who moonlighted as an executive assistant to a hotshot executive (MacDowell) at a top New York City fashion house, hasn’t been a big ratings draw since its January debut, averaging 1.3 million per episode. Jane By Design ended its 18-episode season with 1.2 million viewers in late July.
The series, created by April Blair and executive produced by Gavin Polone, made a splash when it recruited Desperate Housewives’ Teri Hatcher to play Jane’s absent mother for a multi-episode arc. Hatcher was slated to direct an episode.
