Torchwood Torched At Fox
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Fox network has passed on Torchwood after reading Russell T. Davies’ script.
Perhaps that’s when they discovered the lead character, an American who cannot stay dead for very long, is omnisexual… and that’s a critical part of his character.
BBC Worldwide stated “BBC
Worldwide Productions and the Fox Broadcasting Company have mutually
agreed not to progress together with a 13-episode serialized Torchwood
format. We are currently in
discussion with several interested networks.” Former Torchwood and Doctor Who producer and now BBC Worldwide American agent Jane
Tranter said they were still making progress in placing the vaguely more adult Doctor Who spin-off. “It’s
very much ongoing and very much alive,” Tranter said.
We’ll see. What American executives perceive as fit for your eyes differs – greatly – from their British counterparts.
