Amazon Cancels 'One Mississippi,' 'I Love Dick' and 'Jean-Claude'

Amazon Cancels 'I Love Dick,' One Mississippi,' & 'Jean-Claude Van Johnson'

"Amazon Studios is cleaning house", THR writes, suggesting that the cancellation of the three comedies are related to Amazon attempting to distance itself from Price and Lewis.

Comedy shows Jean-Claude Van Johnson, I Love Dick, and One Mississippi have joined more high-brow dramas like The Last Tycoon and Z: The Beginning Of Everything in the category marked "expendable" - Amazon cancelled all three in one wave this week, Variety reports. Jill Soloway's "I Love Dick", starring Kevin Bacon, lasted one season. The decision continues a roller-coaster stretch for the studio, which recently lost its president, Roy Price, following sexual harassment allegations; scored a "Lord of the Rings" adaptation; and picked up wins at the Golden Globes.

Amazon is saying goodbye to three of its beloved comedy series.

Carmelo Anthony says he's having fun again
You certainly hope Dre's return will spark the team. "We've got to be ready to fight and unfortunately we were not tonight". Walton spoke about his team's effort after the game, and he sounded like he was itching to call the Lakers soft.

One Mississippi was canceled after two seasons, while I Love Dick and Jean-Claude Van Johnson were axed after one each. Upon arrival in Marfa, Chris quickly becomes infatuated with Sylvère's fellowship sponsor Dick (Kevin Bacon) and manifests her infatuation in a series of undelivered, at times obsessive, letters. And with the streaming service forgoing its Amazon pilot process in which it allowed viewers have a part in show selection based on the popularity of pilots, it seems that Amazon will - ironically - be losing some of the transparency that set it apart from its original content competitor, Netflix. The news comes hours after Amazon renewed half-hour The Tick for a second season.

Amazon has mapped out a new strategy for the future of its TV series in the wake of ex-head honcho Roy Price's firing past year.
