FOX dumps American 'Torchwood'
FOX has reportedly decided not to move forward on an American version of the "Doctor Who" spinoff "Torchwood."
"BBC Worldwide Productions and the FOX Broadcasting Company have mutually agreed not to progress together with a 13-episode serialized 'Torchwood' format," BBC Worldwide tells The Hollywood Reporter. "We are currently in discussion with several interested networks."
The American take on the franchise wasn't going to be a dramatic departure. original creator Russell Davies was writing the script and the possibility existed that certain original stars, including John Barrowman, might star.
"Torchwood," which premiered in 2006 on BBC 3 and moved up the ladder to BBC 1, was most recently seen Stateside in last year's well regarded "Children of Earth" miniseries.
