City pulls Seed


Seed, the sperm donor comedy from Force Four Entertainment, will not be renewed by Rogers Media for a third season.

“We are extremely proud of Seed and the two seasons that we were able to bring to our viewers. It was a privilege to work with the immense talent behind both the cast and creators involved in this quality Canadian production,” Rogers said in a statement. “It was a difficult decision, but, despite critical acclaim, the series was unable to connect with the audience it needed to continue.”

The series, which starred Adam Korson and Carrie-Lynn Neale, aired on Rogers’ City channel in Canada. Seed was also acquired by The CW Network stateside for its summer 2014 schedule, but was pulled soon after the series bowed on the network on July 14.

Seed was created by Joseph Raso, and was the first comedy series from Force Four. Raso also executive produced the series along with Mark Farrell. Paul J. Smith served as supervising producer, and Karen Wentzell was producer/line producer on the series.

Of the cancellation, Force Four partner and executive producer John Richie offered the following statement: “We are extremely proud of the series, and very grateful to Rogers and City for giving us the opportunity to produce the series, and the chance to work with an amazing cast and crew.  We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”
