With disappointing ratings across the board in a number of key regions, comedy drama Cashmere Mafia will be axed with only seven episodes ever being produced according to reports from the Washington Post.
Throughout its seven episode duration, the program starring Lucy Liu and Miranda Otto lost almost six million of its 10.72 million viewer premiere; the final episode achieved ratings of just 4.77 million, and was only the third highest rating program regularly in its timeslot.
Should a second series have been produced, questions may have been raised over its return to Australian television, with ratings declining nearly twenty percent in its opening weeks on the Nine network.
Thirteen episodes were originally to have been produced for Cashmere Mafia’s first and only season, but only seven were ever broadcast due to the writer’s strike.
