According to Deadline, the network’s newest drama series, Crisis, just went on an unexpected hiatus.
The latest reports are that, after wrapping the fifth episode, the show’s production has been stopped for a “course correction.”
NBC is giving the series’ writers time to “tweak the storylines” and work on the scripts, as well as to do some reshooting of a few completed episodes.
Crisis, starring Dermot Mulroney and Gillian Anderson, revolves around a hijacked highschool bus whose passengers are the offspring of many of D.C’s important politics, including the vice-president’s son.
The show’s pilot was considered one of NBC’s strongest bets this season, alongside with The Blacklist. The episodes that followed the pilot were reportedly “losing [their] direction,” so the network decided to take a break on the production and try to get back to the show’s original idea.
Although highly anticipated, it is a midseason show, so scheduling allows for a pause and can still air on the expected date, somewhere in early 2014.
