[TV Bites] “Cult” Pulled From Schedule, Say Hello To SyFy’s Jamie Foxx Horror Anthology

Cult

CW’s “Cult,” which premiered on February 19th, has been pulled from the network’s schedule. Per THR, “The freshman dud starring The Vampire Diaries’ alum Matt Davis has been completely removed from the network’s schedule, according to program listings The CW released Wednesday.

While it doesn’t look good for the series, there’s always the possibility that the remaining episodes could be shown “on other platforms.” So maybe On Demand or iTunes? They weren’t clear.

In more positive news, the SyFy Channel has announced a new horror anthology series from Jamie Foxx. Yep. And he’s going to write, produce and direct 5 episodes of it. It doesn’t have a title yet, so I’m just going to call it the Untitled Jamie Foxx Horror Anthology Series for now. Per Deadline, it will be in the vein of “Tales From The Crypt” and “The Twilight Zone” and will be exec produced by Troy Miller “Flight Of The Conchords”.

    I tried to like Cult…but couldn’t get into it…I won’t miss it.

    I really tried to like ‘Cult’, but it was just weak in every aspect that makes ‘The Following’ such a great show.
    Jamie Foxx writing and producing a horror anthology for Syfy? No part of the sentence is appealing. I do not look forward to that mess.

    I tried to watch the first episode of Cult when it premiered. It bored me so much. It was a chore to get through that one episode.
