NBC pulls the plug on Dane Cook’s sitcom before it airs
Dane Cook’s new sitcom is no more. NBC pulled the plug on Cook’s series, Next Caller before it even premiered.
The network ordered the show to series for 6 episodes to premiere midseason. The show was four episodes into filming when the the axe came down. Next Caller starred Cook as a radio talk show host who butted heads with his co-host and co-workers played by Collette Wolf, Jeffrey Tambor, and Joy Osmanski.
We can’t but think one of the reasons for the dropping of the show is the decision of the network to give a full season order to Go On which stars Matthew Perry as a sports DJ. Maybe there was just not enough room for two DJs in the NBC sitcom world.
Cook sent out this Tweet in response to the show’s cancellation.
