NBC‘s canceled sci-fi serial The Event is still trying to find a new home according to series lead Jason Ritter, suggesting that a miniseries is still a possibility.
In an interview with Broadway World, Jason Ritter, who played Sean Walker on the NBC series, claimed that producers Nick Wauters and Steve Stark are still trying to bring the show back on the air, with a miniseries said to be one of the possible options:
They are hoping, though, still – Nick Wauters, who created it, and the first producer who developed it with Nick, Steve Stark – they are still in talks with various other channels to hopefully do at least some kind of wrap-up miniseries, if not the whole thing. So, I would love to do that because I think it is frustrating to leave a story half-told.
The miniseries possibility was originally mooted last summer, so it’s interesting to see that those flames haven’t yet been doused.
As much as The Event failed to deliver on many levels fair play to them for at least wanting to complete the story. We have a sense of where that story was heading in season 2, but as things stand much remains unresolved and unexplored.
We’ll keep you posted on any news surrounding The Event.
