‘Insatiable’ Canceled By Netflix After Two Seasons

Insatiable started as a 2017 CW pilot before landing a Netflix series order. The news of its demise comes on the heels of Netflix also canceling another series that had originated as a busted broadcast pilot, Soundtrack, after one season, as the streamer seems to be pulling away from that business model. – Nellie Andreeva / Denise Petski, Deadline Hollywood » https://ift.tt/2uNstCx

Netflix can kill The OA, but it can’t kill a movement

The latest manifestation happened in New York City’s Times Square earlier this week. As flash mobs descended, a massive billboard—paid for by a GoFundMe—projected #SaveTheOA throughout the main hub of Midtown. The flash mobs performed the show’s “movements,” odd-looking dances meant to transcend time and space and also foster community. The billboard, which raised more than $5,000 in 24 hours, was made using fan art and was animated by a team that spanned the globe. Last week, on the other side of the country, fans picketed outside Netflix’s Los Angeles headquarters with signs reading “Algorithms don’t tell stories. Human hearts do.” One fan even went on a hunger strike to bring back the show. There may be a hashtag, but the efforts to bring back The OA go far beyond the usual internet slacktivism. – Angela Watercutter, Wired via Ars Technica » https://ift.tt/2Lf4W35
