Media Rights Capital, the third party firm which was given the task of producing the CW's Sunday-night programming, has shut down production on the scripted series Easy Money and Valentine. A spokesperson for MRC tells TVGuide.com the break is "a planned hiatus," noting that writers and producers have been working non-stop since July. Both shows, says the rep, are expected to complete their original 13-episode orders.
As detailed in this Sunday's ratings recap, Valentine dipped a bit from its already tepid premiere numbers (to just over a million viewers), while Easy Money plunged nearly 30 percent from its debut, to 753,000.
The unscripted In Harm's Way, which this week delivered 729K, remains out of harm's way, while the dysfunctional family comedy Surviving Suburbia (the fourth of MRC's initial offerings) isn't set to premiere until early 2009.
