VH1 Cancels ‘Hindsight’ Just Before It Was to Begin Shooting Season 2
In March, VH1 renewed the time-traveling drama starring Laura Ramsey as a woman who returns to her high school days in 1995. But following a change in leadership this summer, VH1 has opted to pull the plug on Hindsight, saying in a statement: “In this overcrowded and rapidly changing climate, we need to carve out VH1’s distinct place in the scripted marketplace and deliver the biggest audiences possible for our series.”
Creator Shawn Ryan said on Twitter that testing showed that his acclaimed 2002-08 cop drama holds up in the high-resolution format. “I will personally oversee and approve the work on each episode and make sure that the quality is what it needs to be,” Ryan tweeted, adding: “Since we filmed on 16mm film and not digitally, Shield is an ideal candidate for this. Plus we always filmed for widescreen safe.”
Producers decided to remove the former MTV star after discovering that she showed sympathy for Hitler back in 2013.
