1-8-7 Cancelled

BOOOOOOOOOO! I really liked this show! And Detroit!

'Detroit 1-8-7' is canceled, producers confirm

Producers of "Detroit 1-8-7" confirmed Friday that the drama has been canceled. David Zabel and Jason Richman told the Free Press they received a call from ABC at 4:30 p.m. telling them the show had not been renewed. The network, which on Tuesday is announcing its new fall schedule, has not yet confirmed the cancellation.

“One of the most special things about this past year is that we were able to really capture a specific time and place with Detroit – something many shows aspire to. There are plenty of series that do shows in L.A. or New York or Chicago -- we’re very grateful that we were able to do the show about Detroit in the city,” executive producer David Zabel told the Free Press Friday afternoon.

"Detroit 1-8-7" creator and executive producer Jason Richman said, "“This really was a series about Motown, and we can’t thank the city and all of the supporters there enough. When we first started, many people weren’t sure about what we were doing or what the show was about. Detroit’s a tough city. But now, to have had so many people embrace us and help us, it really was an exciting partnership.”
