TV execs are strongly considering cancelling three Atlanta filmed TV shows. According to TVLine.com, The Vampire Diaries, Sleepy Hollow
and The Originals
are "on the bubble" of getting cancelled. Apparently, the ratings for these three TV shows have struggled in the past few months.
In Hollywood, once a show's schedule is moved to Friday it is sent to "Friday-Night-Purgatory" which means TV execs are strongly considering cancelling the show unless DVR and ratings increase. For example, according to TVLine Sleepy Hollow
suffered a double-digit decline and Fox quickly moved the once popular TV series to Friday.
The same thing happened to CW's The Originals
and The Vampire Diaries.
In fact, once Nina Dobrev quit the TV series to focus on major motion pictures, ratings for The Vampire Diaries
have not quite recovered. "The one time CW smash has fallen on hard times. Despite creative resurgence, ratings are down sans Nina Dobrev and, beginning in January, it’s moving to the Cancellation Waiting Room known as Friday nights." TVLine also suggests that if The Vampire Diaries
gets cancelled so will The Originals.
"And we have to imagine if The CW is going to save one of the two shows, it’s not going to be the lower-rated, less popular offshoot."
Regardless of what happens to these once popular TV shows, casting directors are constantly looking for new talent to work on their corresponding productions. To audition for a background acting, stand-in, crew, or even possible speaking role, check out the latest casting call breakdowns here
