Syfy has cancelled reality series Bazillion Dollar Club just one week after airing its first episode.
Per Tech Crunch, the cabler decided not to continue with the series due to low ratings.
However, Zero Point Zero, the production company behind the show, is looking for a new home to air the remaining episodes.
Highway 1 vice president Brady Forrest, who is a featured personality on Bazillion, said:
“It just didn’t gel with the Syfy audience. Syfy was on board for the pilot episode, but as often happens with new series, they did not pick up the option for the remaining episodes.
But there are five more episodes so rather than airing a few more and seeing how it goes, Syfy thought it best to find it a new home instead of shutting it down permanently.
Who knows, [if we find another home for the show] it might even get a better name – fingers crossed.”
Added ZPZ co-founder Lydia Tenaglia said she’s confident the series will live on elsewhere:
“We are disappointed and believe strongly in the series, which received tremendous support and praise from the tech community. We’re optimistic the show will find the right home on another platform.”
Stay tuned as we monitor Bazillion Dollar Club‘s quest for a new home.
