AMC shall Feed the Beast no longer.
The network on Friday confirmed the cancellation of its David Schwimmer-led drama after just one season.
Based on the Danish series Bankerot, AMC’s Beast followed Tommy (Schwimmer) and Dion (Jim Sturgess), a pair of best friends who open a Greek eatery in the Bronx, thrusting them into the seedy underbelly of New York City’s restaurant scene. The 10-episode first (and final) season wrapped on Aug. 2.
Here’s AMC’s official statement in full:
We have great respect and admiration for the entire team associated with Feed the Beast, starting with Clyde Phillips, David Schwimmer, Jim Sturgess and our studio partner, Lionsgate. We are thankful for the opportunity to collaborate with them and appreciative of their talents, dedication and care. Unfortunately, the show simply didn’t achieve the results needed to move forward with a second season.
