As you read this, Method & Red is taping its 13th — and possibly final — episode. The sitcom's been dying a slow death since June, when Method Man griped to the Los Angeles Times that Fox wouldn't let him keep it "ghetto" enough. "This is frustrating for me," he said, "and it's not turning out for me as expected." Later, Method's struggle for creative control resulted in an alleged physical altercation with one of the show's writers, who resigned. Now, although Fox recently ordered three additional episodes beyond its initial 13-episode order, the show's going on a break. "We're taking a writing hiatus to reevaluate the creative direction of the show," Justin Pierce, a spokesman for Regency Television, tells TV Guide Online. "We plan to move forward with new episodes once everybody — the Fox network, the studio and the cast — signs off on a new direction. So it's far from being canceled." Stay tuned...
