A&E Releases Programming Slate, But Where's Patrick Swayze's The Beast?

The Beast

A&E's new slate of original programming doesn't include The Beast, the Patrick Swayze FBI drama imperiled by the health of its star.

That doesn't necessarily mean the end of the show — a rep for the cable network says no decision has been made about the its future — but it comes as a disappointment to Swayze fans who hoped The Beast might appear on A&E's schedule, which was released Tuesday. Swayze was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in early 2008, and shot most of the first season of The Beast while battling the disease.

"He did us a great favor because he put a lot of attention on the conversation," Fox said Thursday. "We could hijack the last two weeks of the political season." read more
