TRAGEDY RATTLES 2GETHER
The fate of MTV's fictional boy-band series, 2gether
, remains up in the air in the wake of Michael Cuccione
's death over the weekend. The 16-year-old cancer survivor who played Jason "QT" McKnight on the series died following a bout with pneumonia. "We had shot six more [episodes] and... we were going to launch them in February," Brian Graden
, MTV's president of programming, told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif. "Right now, we're just going to put that on hold and wait and see what the family feels and what the producers feel." Meanwhile, Graden confirmed that the network's low-rated youth drama, Live Through This
, is all but cancelled. "We have seven episodes we haven't aired yet," he said. "We'll probably air them at some point, but it's unlikely the show will come back."
