Guess they no longer love Dick.
Amazon Studios just canceled three original series: "I Love Dick," "One Mississippi," and "Jean-Claude Van Johnson."
Tig Notaro's "One Mississippi" lasted two seasons before being cut, with Season 2 holding strong with a 100 percent fresh rating from Rotten Tomatoes critics. Jill Soloway's "I Love Dick," starring Kevin Bacon, lasted one season. Jean-Claude Van Damme's comedy was canceled just a month after it premiered on Amazon. Its pilot episode debuted on Prime back on August 19, 2016, but Season 1 didn't show up until December 15, 2017.
Howard Stern had recommended Van Damme's show, leading some viewers to check it out on Amazon. So if it develops a cult following -- which it didn't have time to do in just a month -- then maybe another streaming service will pick it up.
Why cancel these three shows? "This is part of a move towards bigger, wider-audience series," an Amazon insider told Deadline. Amazon has been thinning its comedy lineup, Deadline added, and declined to pick up any of the three comedy pilots from fall's pilot season.
Surviving comedies include "Transparent"," "Mozart in the Jungle," "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," and -- earning a renewal just under the wire -- "The Tick."
Other canceled Amazon titles from the past year include "Z: The Beginning of Everything," "Hand of God," and "The Last Tycoon."
