The film critic’s revamped television show will be canceled at the end of the season, he says, unless an underwriter steps in. Ebert and his wife, Chaz Hammel-Smith, have been personally backing the show since January, and they can no longer afford to foot the bill. (Explains Ebert, on his blog: “We paid for the pilot. We paid for the titles. We paid for the set, the lighting, and all of the salaries … lunch on taping days, everything.”) Ebert and Hammel-Smith are still looking for last-minute investors; they have until the end of the month to make new arrangements. One word, guys: Kickstarter.
