According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC has canceled the new TV series after watching the pilot.

ABC will not move forward with its Susannah Grant drama series Members Only, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The cast was informed Saturday that the network did not want to move ahead with the series starring John Stamos and Breaking Bad‘s Betsy Brandt.

The series was ordered a straight-to-series production in January and featured David O. Russell (American Hustle) to write and produce the 13-episode drama. However, a month later, Russell left the TV series, which would have been his first TV project.

The upstairs-downstairs soap opera centers on the powerful and wealthy Holmes family, owners of Connecticut’s most exclusive clubs.

ABC currently has a full list of replacement shows to take Member’s Only including Astronaut Wives Club, Captain America spinoff Agent Carter, John Ridley’s American Crime, The Whispers and Ryan Phillippe’s Secrets and LiesIn addition, ABC has several new comedies including Galavant and Fresh Off the Boat. 

The decision to drop Members Only comes as ABC has had a strong fall line up with Shonda Rhimes-produced productions including the new series How To Get Away With Murder
