Trust Me Season 2? TNT’s decision to cancel the 2009 drama series after a single season is something Eric McCormack still mourns, per AV Club:
“[I loved the show]. Whenever I see Tom [Cavanagh]—we’re good friends—we just mourn that we didn’t get a longer shot. It was TNT, and they were really supportive of the show, but in the end they just didn’t feel it was their audience. I never really understood why we didn’t get a longer run at it, because it was Griffin Dunne and Monica Potter. Just a really strong cast.
Further lamenting the show’s early demise, he said:
It was well-written and created by the guys who actually write Longmire—Hunt Baldwin and John Coveny. They created Trust Me. And they were ad agency guys, John and Hunter. They really knew this world. So it felt real. It was funny—it had a great pace to it. And the thing that always makes me crazy is this idea that, “Somebody else is doing something similar, so this will never work.” They were talking about Mad Men. I was like, “Mad Men takes place in the ’60s.” That plus Bewitched make them the three only ad agency shows that had ever existed [at the time], so how is that a problem? But it seemed to work against us, which is too bad. But the 12 episodes that we did, I think, are great fun. They’re really good.
Should TNT have kept faith in Trust Me?
