Fox Doesn’t Want Us & Them After All

US & THEM: Based on an award-winning BBC series and starring Emmy Award nominee Jason Ritter (R) and Alexis Bledel (L), US & THEM is a new single-camera ensemble comedy about a young couple, whose path to happily-ever-after is complicated by the screwed-up circus of people closest to them.

The U.S. adaptation of Gavin and Stacy looks like it's stalling out before it even really starts. Fox's Us & Them, starring Alexis Bledel and Jason Ritter, is still technically supposed to premiere midseason, but the network has decided not to make more than the seven episodes (including the pilot) it has already filmed. According to Deadline, the actors have been released, which is a very bad sign for the future of the show. And a bad sign for the future of TV enjoyment — that pilot was darling and full of promise.
