FX cancels 'Lights Out,' take 2: Some thoughts from John Landgraf

FX exec thinks young audiences just didn't want to watch a boxing show

As I've said many times before, FX president John Landgraf is one of my favorite executives to talk to in this business. He's a smart guy, an articulate one and an honest one, and he has a genuine, infectious passion for making good TV that's obvious both from the output of FX under his leadership, and just from talking to him.

Where most networks are reluctant to acknowledge that a show's even been canceled, let alone explain why, Landgraf held a conference call the day that he pulled the plug on "Terriers" in the fall, and he made himself available to speak with reporters after this afternoon's news that "Lights Out" won't be back for a second season. I got on the phone with Landgraf for a few minutes to ask about what he thinks went wrong and whether two failures in a row - even after a pretty good run of success - might in any way change the way FX does things.

Ready for 'Parks and Recreation': The Book?

'Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America' coming in October

NBC wound up only needing 16 episodes of "Parks and Recreation" this year, and since 6 of those episodes were produced last spring, only 10 had to be made as part of this production season. Which means "Parks and Rec" co-creator Mike Schur has had a lot of extra time on his hands, and he spent a good chunk of it working on a tie-in project for TV's best comedy that would only come into existence if NBC renewed it for a fourth season.

Well, the renewal came late last week, and now the project is official: "Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America," a book "written by" Leslie Knope but really worked on by Schur and many other members of the "Parks and Rec" cast and creative team.
