"American Woman" is one-and-done at Paramount Network.
Paramount is the newly rebranded Spike TV, and it canceled the Alicia Silverstone ’70s-set dramedy about two weeks after the end of its freshman season. "American Woman" was inspired by the life of Kyle Richards of "The Real Housewives" franchise.
But it's gone now.
Instead, Paramount is adding more Darren Star to the network.
Paramount is taking Star's "Younger" from sister network TV Land before the upcoming Season 6. Paramount also ordered Darren Star's "Emily in Paris," a new half-hour comedy following a 20-something woman from the Midwest who moves to Paris for a job opportunity.
According to THR, both shows will be part of Paramount Network's Thursday dramedy lineup, which launches in January with the "First Wives Club" reboot from "Girls Trip" co-writer Tracy Oliver. "Emily in Paris" will premiere in the summer. There's no set premiere date yet for "Younger" Season 6.
Keith Cox, president of development and originals at Paramount Network, TV Land and CMT: "With Darren's proven history as a hitmaker and Tracy Oliver’s fresh voice and perspective, we see a tremendous opportunity to build Thursday nights as destination viewing for fun female-driven dramedies. 'Younger' is a huge hit with a passionate fanbase that’s the perfect centerpiece to this lineup."
