|The bastard executioner canceled by FX, No Season 2|
|2015-11-18 by thepoperope||The Bastard Executioner||discuss|
Sutter and FX Networks CEO John Landgraf had a candid conversation recently that sealed the decision about the show.
"The numbers just didn't sustain the cost of the show, quite frankly," Sutter said. "It's all math at the end of the day. We couldn't establish that core audience that allows you to figure out your advertising paradigm and whether or not the show is affordable."
Sutter is putting his money where is mouth is via an ad running in the Nov. 24 edition of Variety, among other outlets, thanking the "Bastard" cast and crew for their hard work. He also gives a shoutout to Imagine Television, which produced the series with 20th Century Fox TV's Fox 21 banner, numerous Fox execs and Landgraf, among others.
"I have been awed by the talent and commitment of this 'TBX' cast and crew," Sutter states in the ad. "The audience has spoken and unfortunately the word is, 'meh.' So with due respect, we bring our mythology to an epic and fiery close."
Sutter said the experience of detaching from Hollywood to produce a period drama in a remote part of England was exhilarating, enlightening and by the end, a little emotional.
"I love this cast and crew so much," Sutter said. "They're primarily British actors. They have a different mentality about the work. They're not plugged into the numbers or worried about 'Do I have a job?' They're so used to be journeymen. They were there to do the work. By the finale the whole cast and crew had bonded and everyone was so excited about this show and the mythology. And by that time I already knew it wasn't coming back. It was heartbreaking for me."
