Disappointing news out of Human Resources this morning: Fox is letting Linda From HR go.
The network has opted not to move forward with the Lauren Graham-fronted comedy pilot, our sister site Deadline reports.
Linda‘s fate was essentially sealed last week when the unconventional sitcom failed to secure a series order ahead of Fox’s upfront presentation. Network brass, however, said the pilot remained in contention for the 2017-18 season. That is no longer the case. And there are apparently no plans to shop Linda around to another network/outlet.
The half-hour, single-camera sitcom centered on Graham’s Linda Plugh, an HR employee whose one bad decision throws her monotonous, unfulfilled existence into an exciting but dangerous tailspin of balancing her work life, her home life and a secret that could unravel everything. The cast also included Happy Endings‘ Zachary Knighton and Lois & Clark‘s Michael Landes.
Fox has also formally passed on Eva Longoria’s Type A and Liz Meriwether’s Thin Ice, as well as its Behind Enemy Lines remake.
