“What we hadn’t factored in is that [Amazon Studios head] Roy Price just doesn’t care for the show. He’s representative of the Amazon culture in that he’s just impenetrable. All I know is that in the [season two] pitch, he asked us to refer to the characters by the actors’ names because he didn’t know the characters’ names.”
Meanwhile, Amazon head of comedy, Joe Lewis, has refuted suggestions that the show was a top performer and hence cancellation-proof:
“We had high hopes for Good Girls Revolt, and have tremendous respect for the creators, cast and Sony, but I can tell you that the Symphony numbers being reported are wrong and that the show wasn’t performing at the levels we had hoped for — either in total viewership or completion rates.”
Good Girls Revolt is reportedly being shopped to a number of outlets, including ABC, Bravo, Freeform and USA.
Can Good Girls Revolt be saved elsewhere? Stay tuned…
