Another canceled TV show has been rescued, this time by a three-way coalition.
“All Rise”(shown here) was dropped by CBS after two seasons. In the new plan:
– Those seasons will rerun on both HBO Max and Hulu, beginning Dec. 1.
– They’ll also rerun on the Oprah Winfrey Network. All three – OWN, HBO Max and Hulu – will then add a new, 20-episode season.
Others have rescued shows that were dumped by broadcast channels. Most recently, that involved two shows canceled by NBC: “Manifest” will have a fourth and final season on Netflix; “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” will have a Christmas movie on Roku.
OWN, however, has stayed out of that, until now. “All Rise” is produced by Dee Harris-Lawrence, who also does OWN’s much-praised “David Makes Man.”
In “All Rise,” Simone Missick stars as a judge – young, Black, idealistic, occasionally overwhelmed by the chaotic court system. In both seasons, she received NAACP Image Award nominations for best actress; in the second season, the show was also nominated for best drama.
Ratings and criticial response, however, have been moderate. This season, CBS dropped “All Rise” and moved “NCIS” – often No. 1 in the ratings – to its 9 p.m. Monday slot.
