Twentieth Century Fox TV and Yahoo are in talks to bring back canceled comedy “Enlisted” via streaming service Yahoo Screen, an insider told TheWrap.
Yahoo Screen recently made headlines for announcing the return of NBC comedy “Community.”
“Enlisted” was a cult favorite in its one season on Fox, but low ratings led to cancellation. Fans of the show recently launched a social media campaign for Yahoo Screen and the Geoff Stults vehicle to link up.
A Yahoo spokesperson declined comment to TheWrap, citing their policy against commenting on “rumors.” Show creators Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce also declined an invitation to comment.
“Community” averaged a 1.5 in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic over the current season — its final one on NBC. “Enlisted” — a Friday show — averaged a 1.0 in the key demo. Both numbers are per most current Nielsen data, live plus seven day measurements.
“Enlisted” co-starred Chris Lowell and Parker Young.
