Sometimes IP just isn't enough.Fresh off cancelling Rush Hour, CBS appears poised to drop fellow film-to-TV reboot Limitless, with executives telling press during its pre-upfront breakfast that the procedural is being shopped elsewhere by producers CBS Television Studios.
"Right now we're in discussions with other potential buyers so I'd rather not comment on that at the moment," CBS president Glenn Geller told reporters, declining to say the series has officially been canceled.
While the Jake McDormand and Jennifer Carpenter starrer likely won't be back on CBS, the series did receive a fair amount of critical support. THR's TV critic Daniel Fienberg called it one of TV's most "creative procedurals."
Overall, CBS' freshman class finishes at 3-for-7, with the network also cancelling comedy Angel From Hell and renewing Life in Pieces, Code Black and Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders with Supergirl canceled and moving to The CW for season two.
