Jane Levy sings a frustrated tune following the cancellation of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist.
In an interview with VanityFair.com, Levy criticized NBC for prioritizing procedures over a wellness show like Zoey’s. “I’m sorry, but I have to say this: I watch new NBC programming and I’m like, ‘Okay, we could watch a lot of crime and gun shows,'” he said. she lamented. “Our show is about love. It’s a shame to take that off the air. I have the impression that this is not the right choice.
NBC took the musical off the hook last week after two seasons. And talks to move the show to the network’s sibling streaming outlet, Peacock, have failed. Lionsgate, the studio behind Zoey’s, is now buying it from other streaming outlets.
“I think we can have a real chance elsewhere,” showrunner Austin Winsberg said on Twitter last Wednesday after the announcement of the cancellation, before urging fans to voice their displeasure. “But the more support we can give to the fans, the better.”
What if this is really the end? Levy tells VanityFair.com that she is filled with ‘gratitude’, adding, “I feel like I did everything I wanted with this show. If it’s over, I have no regrets. I gave everything and everyone else too.
