Yup, the news of the cancellation of “The Event” was still fresh when rumors began to circulate that Netflix may save the doomed series. This rumor came via Deadline. They reported:
Talks are underway with at least one distribution partner to take over the serialized drama … The Event executive producer Steve Stark wouldn’t comment, but I hear new original programming player Netflix’s name tossed around.
The news of “The Event’s” cancellation was no surprise. But this development is. We really enjoyed this series and would watch via any means. A Netflix version would be great. But even if that does occur, Deadline continues:
Word is that there has been interest from several cable and digital entities. Stark said that they are exploring the opportunities with the “full support” of the studio, UMS.
All great bits of news for fans of this exciting sci-fi series.
