The pact comes a little more than a year after Bruckheimer TV ended its 15-year run with Warner Bros. Television. At the time, Bruckheimer had decided to pursue talks with investment companies and other players for independent financing that would have allowed him to own a much greater share of his programs that under most studio deals.
It’s understood that Bruckheimer and his TV chief, Jonathan Littman, spent more than a year in discussions with various entities but never found the right fit. In order to remain active in TV development, the company opted to return to a traditional studio overall deal. Bruckheimer TV, headed by CEO Jonathan Littman, has spent the past few months make the rounds of the largest studios other than Warner Bros.

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from Season 3 of “Catastrophe.”]
Before her death in December, Carrie Fisher had already been recognized by the Television Academy via two previous Emmy nominations. But those nods – one in 2008, as a guest actress on “30 Rock,” and the other in 2011 for her special “Wishful Drinking” – ultimately didn’t translate to a win. Now, there’s a really good chance TV Academy voters will be moved to pay tribute to the beloved actress with an overdue posthumous statue.
While she appears on the big screen in the upcoming “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” Fisher made her final TV appearance on the Amazon comedy “Catastrophe,” which recently released its third season. Fisher portrays Mia, the rather obnoxious mother of Rob (Rob Delaney), an American man who moved to London to marry his one-week fling Sharon (Sharon Horgan) after she became pregnant.

RelatedRenewal Scorecard: What’s Coming Back? What’s Cancelled?
The cancellation of CBS’ two lowest-rated and least-watched dramas, reported by TV by the Numbers, leaves the network with no shows still on the bubble, seeing as the reality-tv series Undercover Boss (which is currently airing Season 8) was picked up for a ninth cycle on Wednesday morning.

Many series that launched during the 2016-2017 season quickly fizzled, but still were holding onto hope.
From shows like Fox’s “Pitch” to the CW’s “Frequency” and “No Tomorrow,” all of which did not receive back-orders for their freshmen seasons, to NBC’s “Powerless,” which was pulled off the network before its final three episodes aired, the writing has been on the wall — but now, network executives are officially pulling the plug.
Other shows that either were yanked off the air or did not receive additional episode orders, include CBS’s “Doubt,” which was pulled after just two episodes,” medical drama “Pure Genius,” plus ABC’s dramas “Notorious” and “Conviction” — those series still await their final fate. Tragically, Bill Paxton’s “Training Day” on CBS was shuffled around the network’s schedule after the actor’s shocking passing.
Here are the shows that have been nearly cancelled, but are now officially cancelled…

Network executives are currently hard at work evaluating new programming for the 2017-2018 television season, but pilots aren’t the only projects that require decisions. Veteran shows are also up in the air and possibly on the chopping block.
Many returning series have already been renewed, but there is still a healthy portion of shows still on the bubble. Fox’s “Pitch,” NBC’s “Powerless” and “Emerald City” have kicked off the TV industry’s annual blood bath — so which shows will follow?
Though the majority of the final decisions won’t come until just before the week of May 15 for Upfronts, Variety has the early buzz from industry insiders.
