How pathetic is it that a major network is cancelling one of it’s top rated shows to cater to the mob?
A&E has canceled its flagship series and one of the highest-rated shows on basic cable. A week after Live P.D. was pulled in the wake of George Floyd’s death, the reality series’ hiatus has been made permanent.
“This is a critical time in our nation’s history and we have made the decision to cease production on Live PD,” the network said in a statement to Deadline.
“Going forward, we will determine if there is a clear pathway to tell the stories of both the community and the police officers whose role it is to serve them. And with that, we will be meeting with community and civil rights leaders as well as police departments.”
The decision was made jointly by A&E and MGM’s Big Fish Entertainment, which produces the series.
What could hold police more accountable than dozens of live police departments across the nation on the weekends? This was holding police accountable, and the network folded like an accordion to appease a small percentage of the population.
What are your thoughts on A&E cancelling this popular show?
