New Amsterdam Renewal - Status Update

I have received word from David Manson this morning that confirms it. FOX has officially canceled the series as of yesterday. To quote from his email:

"Yes. Unfortunately, I received word yesterday that Fox has officially cancelled NA. I know this will be a disappointment to the many fans who campaigned so ardently for its renewal. I can only express my gratitude for their passion and hope that perhaps some other network will let John Amsterdam live.

And my thanks to you as well.



I normally wouldn't quote an entire email outright but I feel this is a message for all of us, every loyal fan.

While chances may be slim, there is still a possibility that Regency Television could find another home for the show. However, time is in short supply as actors and crew will eventually find other work.

I think it would be worth the price of a stamp to let Regency know you support the show and would like to see more of it.

Regency Television Productions Inc
4024 Radford Ave Bldg 19
Studio City, CA 91604-2101

Tel: (818) 655-5562

I think it's, also, advisable to let FOX know - POLITELY - that you think their decision is a mistake. I recommend EVERYONE giving FOX a call on the Viewer Comment Line and letting them know you want to see more of John Amsterdam on your TV screens next season.

The telephone number to dial is: 310.369.3066

If you have postcards or letters you still want to send, please try to get them out this week.

Kevin Reilly
President of Entertainment, FOX
10201 W. Pico Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90035

You may wish to send a second card, indicating your support to:

New Amsterdam
P.O. Box 900
Attn: FOX BROADCASTING Publicity Dept.
Beverly Hills, CA 90213-0900

You can, finally, email FOX (but please do one or both of the above first) at: askfox@fox.com

Oh for christ's sake.

Why do I just feel a sense of weariness and futility about this? Oh yeah. Firefly.

I should dig out that "FOX: Where good television goes to die" icon...

*nods* I've heard a lot of bad things about Fox. It's why I'm still surprised Bones is going into its fourth season.

What about the NA forum on Fox? I'm pretty sure the execs or someone at Fox reads them sometimes.


I think Sci-fi should pick it up personally.

JT, I don't understand how Fox can load their schedule with complete & utter reality crap, while a brilliant show like "New Amsterdam" is given only a short time to find an audience. Thank you so much for championing this brilliant series and maybe by some miracle, another network will pick it up. I will contact everyone to let them know how good a show they are letting go.
