Fox won’t be making as much Making History as it originally thought.
The network has cut the midseason comedy’s episode order from 13 to nine, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Executive-produced by Last Man on Earth EPs Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the potential series centers on three friends who find a way to travel through time in search of truth, justice, and riches, which complicates their lives in 2016. They visit some of the greatest moments of the past as they try to resolve their personal problems, while history and pop culture comically collide. Adam Pally (Happy Endings) and Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl) star.
We’re hearing that the decision to trim the comedy’s order is based on the network’s scheduling needs: Given new and returning series, only nine installments of Making History are needed to fill out the spring slate.
Earlier this week, ABC cut the episode order for its struggling drama Notorious from 13 to 10.
