I hate talking about cancellations, because it’s depressing. It’s depressing that shows that deserve a chance are being shut down because they don’t make a quick buck for networks.
And we’re forever going to be bitter about The Baker and The Beauty.
“Baker and the Beauty is a show that depicts Latin families as warm, lovable, full of joy and compassion and humor,” star Nathalie Kelley had written in an open letter after the cancellation. “A cancellation by ABC means that there are now no shows on the networks with a Latinx cast. At a time when the public is marching in the streets demanding representation and diversity this is an extremely tone deaf decision.”
Showrunner Dean Georgaris took to Twitter last night to talk to the fans.
We’re saddened that a show with so much potential was cancelled. ABC didn’t give it a fair chance.
What are your thoughts?
