Mandy Moore Sitcom Not Picked Up by ABC, Actress Reacts

MandyMoore_TheFamilyTrapPhoto Abc-online-tvWhat a shame! In a suprising twist, The Family Trap, a planned sitcom starring Mandy Moore and directed by Shawn Levy, was not picked up by ABC for the upcoming season.

While the pilot (which has already been shot) could still be aired at some point in the future, it's a stunning setback for a series that promised not only the star power of Mandy Moore, but Roswell's Majandra Delfino, Grease's Stockard Channing, and Psych's Kurt Fuller.

Why the change of heart by ABC? To the surprise of many industry watchers, the network is bringing back six series for their sophomore season, including comedies Suburgatory, Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23, and Last Man Standing, and dramas Once Upon a Time, Scandal, and Revenge.

Also influencing the decision was a renewed focus on winning over new male viewers. Debuting this fall is a slew of male-centered shows including "666 Park Ave," "Gotham," "Family Tools (aka Red Van Man)," and "The Neighbors."

As always, Mandy Moore reacted gracefully.
