UPDATE 9:30 AM: After confirming Donny!‘s cancellation to Deadline, USA now has clarified the show’s renewal status as TBD.
The network, whose bread and butter is original drama programming, took a shot with the half-hour project, which satirizes wealth, the media and modern romance through the eyes of Deutsch’s fictionalized character, based on the real-life TV personality. The series’ six-episode first season premiered last November to lukewarm response.
Donny! was created by Deutsch and Angie Day who executive produced with Banks Tarver and Ken Druckerman of Left/Right.
USA’s other original scripted comedy series, cult favorite Playing House, is heading into its third season.
