For filmmaker and left-wing activist Michael Moore, despite touting his new politically-themed television program as an event not to be missed, the show was cancelled before a single episode could air.
The notoriously outspoken critic of President Trump boasted that his program would focus on DC politics while being “dangerous and relentless,” however, the plan was never able to come to fruition.
After Moore seemingly lost interest in the project, and focused his hatred for the president elsewhere, the show, which was dubbed “Michael Moore: Live from the Apocalypse,” was doomed to limbo, until it was cancelled by TBS last week.
Moore’s anti-Trump Broadway show, as well as a similarly-themed documentary, did poorly as well, causing the director to neglect his planned television series, a fact many believe lead to the show’s cancellation.
The liberal director Michael Moore was supposed to have his own show on TBS coming up, with a significant amount of editorial control over it.
The program has been canceled before even one episode could air.
Last week, the network axed his upcoming docuseries “TV Nation” — initially called “Michael Moore: Live from the Apocalypse.”
“TV Nation” is the same name as a satirical news show the “Fahrenheit 11/9” filmmaker starred in from 1994-1995.
When Moore signed the development deal in May 2017, he told Deadline the series was supposed to center around “a raucous gathering place for millions of our fellow citizens in desperate need of a break from the screaming pundits and the purveyors of ‘alternative facts.’ Our show will be dangerous and relentless. And it will be the destination for those who want to know what’s really going on and what they might be able to do about it.”
He also said the show would focus on the politics of Washington, D.C., Wall Street, and the “one percent.”
Initially, the series was set to air in the fall of 2017.
After that, it was scheduled to begin in early 2018, late 2018 — and then finally after the midterm elections, none of which occurred.
Before the show was canceled this month, there was no timetable on when it might see air time.
