CBS on Saturday cancelled five of its freshman series, including advertising satire The Crazy Ones and newbie sitcom Friends With Better Lives.
Also not returning to the network is Ari Graynor’s Bad Teacher, Josh Holloway’s Intelligence – which premiered to 20.8 million viewers in January – and Dylan McDermott’s Hostages.
In slightly more uplifting news, CBS did renew The Mentalist for a seventh season.
Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? Certainly not Meghan Ory, best known for playing Red Riding Hood in hit fantasy drama Once Upon A Timeand the latest special guest to be announced for this month’s MCM London Comic Con.
A modern take on fairy tales created by Lostand Tron: Legacy writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, Once Upon A Time sees the famous characters of Fairy Tale Land transported by the Evil Queen’s curse to our world – specifically, the small seaside town of Storybrooke, Maine. Meghan Ory’s character Ruby seems to be just a rebellious young waitress working in her Granny’s diner – but her true identity is Red Riding Hood. In a twist on the classic tale, Once Upon A Time’s Red isn’t the one threatened by the Big Bad Wolf, though …she turns out to be a werewolf herself!
As well as appearing in Once Upon A Time, Meghan Ory is currently starring as Riley Neal in new sci-fi spy drama Intelligence, while Ory’s other sci-fi credits include Supernatural, Sanctuary and Smallville.
