NBC drops 'Men's Room'

October 01, 2004|by Zap2it.com

NBC has stopped production on "The Men's Room," a comedy that was part of the network's midseason slate.

Production on the show, which stars Scott Cohen ("Gilmore Girls"), John Cho ("Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle") and Brian Skala, was shut down after six episodes, the Hollywood trades report. The network had originally ordered 13 episodes.

NBC announced it was picking up "The Men's Room" in May, along with two other comedies, "The Office" and "Crazy for You," and the dramas "Medium" and "Law & Order: Trial by Jury," as part of its plan to launch shows year-round. The show, from exec producer Danny Zuker ("Off Centre"), revolves around the friendship of three guys who are at crossroads in their lives.

Differing opinions about where the show was heading reportedly caused the stop in production. The show also went through some recasting early in its life, with Skala replacing Eric Lively after the pilot was shot.

NBC may still use the completed six episodes of the show later in the season, and a network spokesman says it could resume production if the first episodes perform well.
