You may have been surprised to learn you can cancel a TV show without the network’s permission.
ABC News has found out that if you cancel a television show on a network, it’s usually in your best interest to tell the network and the network tells you that they’re cancelling it.
The WTW Network was the network that broadcast the first series of the popular US sitcom, Family Guy, on Fox in 1990.
WTW Network executive producer Jon Bokenkamp told ABC News that his company has had several discussions with Fox regarding cancelling Family Guy.
“If we’re not able to get an agreement with them to continue to do the show, we will have to let it go,” he said.
Bokenkamp added that the WTW has been approached by Fox, but they are not currently negotiating for the show to be renewed.
ABC News has asked Fox and the WTV Network if they would be willing to let Family Guy go but did not receive a response at the time of publication.
