Will we ever see the little mermaid special?
Why was Disney’s ‘The Little Mermaid Live’ special that was supposed to be in October on ABC canceled?
Matt Roush: There are differing reports on whether this projected “live action/animation hybrid” special is canceled or merely postponed. ABC says the latter, but USA Today suggested it may be unlikely to move forward because of budget constraints. It seems that it may have been too ambitious to schedule an event for early fall that mashes up the animated classic with live musical performances. There may yet be a happily ever after for this project, but it’s too soon to tell.
Two quick questions: 1. When and where will NBC show the remaining episodes of ‘Powerless’? 2. When will BBC America show the final season of ‘The Musketeers’?
Matt Roush: 1. Only two episodes of Powerless were left on the shelf when NBC canned it and the episode featuring the late Adam West was made available online for a limited time following his death. If NBC didn’t make these available on nbc.com for screening, you’ll probably have to wait until or if someone picks up the series for streaming. 2. The third season of The Musketeers bypassed BBC America for streaming the entire series on Hulu.
