“While audience response was not as strong as we had hoped, we were thrilled with the creativity of the enormously talented Jenny Bicks and Paul Feig, as well as the outstanding, dedicated cast and crew they assembled. We look forward to collaborating with them again in the future and are thankful for all of our partners at Lionsgate, Jenny’s Perkins Street Productions, Paul’s Feigco Entertainment, BBC Studios’ Angie Stephenson, and Charlie Cooper and Daisy May Cooper,” a Fox spokesperson said.

It’s not a surprise given that the U.S. remake of cult British comedy This Country was on the bubble.

The series followed a documentary crew that sets out to explore the lives of residents in the small American town of Flatch.

It starred Holmes, who plays Kelly Mallet, Sam Straley, who plays Shrub Mallett, Sean William Scott, who plays Father Joe, Aya Cash as Cheryl Peterson, Justin Linville as Mickey St. Jean, Taylor Ortega as Nadine Garcia-Parney and Krystal Smith as Big Mandy.

The series was produced by Lionsgate, BBC Studios’ LA production arm and Fox Entertainment with Bicks as showrunner. She exec produces via her Perkins Street Productions shingle alongside Feig, via his Feigco Entertainment, BBC Studios’ Angie Stephenson and Charlie Cooper and Daisy May Cooper, who created the original BBC series.

In May, Michael Thorn, President of Scripted Programming, Fox Entertainment told Deadline that it was “taking a step back on our live action comedy”.

“We’re still talking about [Welcome To Flatch]. But I think as we wait for the strike to end we’re going to look at our development, and Welcome To Flatch and make the best decision for that comedy goal… and see where we stand. I think we’ll have some news as soon as the as soon as the strikeouts,” he said at the time.
