CBS has pulled the Katherine Heigl legal drama “Doubt” from the schedule after just two episodes, the network announced Friday.

The series, which was created by “Grey’s Anatomy” alums Tony and Joan Phelan, had completed production on all 13 episodes. It is unclear when or if the remaining 11 episodes will air. For now, “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” will take over the show’s Wednesday night time slot beginning March 8.

“Doubt” premiered last week to relatively low ratings. The first episode pulled a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic, making it the lowest-rated show among the Big Four networks in its timeslot. The ratings slipped even further when the second episode aired on Wednesday.

Despite its short run, “Doubt” made history with star Laverne Cox, who became the first transgender series regular on a broadcast network. Cox played high-power attorney Cameron Wirth.

The series also stars Steven Pasquale, Dulé Hill, Dreama Walker, Elliott Gould and Kobi Libii. Heigl plays a smart, chic, successful defense lawyer at a boutique firm who starts to fall for her charismatic client — who may or may not be guilty of a brutal crime.
