Bad Robot Series Scrapped By Apple After Star Jennifer Garner Exits – Deadline


EXCLUSIVE: Jennifer Garner has pulled out of the long-in-progress Apple TV+ limited series My glory was that I had such friends, from JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot and Warner Bros. TV. As a result, the streamer has chosen not to continue with the project it received in 2018 with a direct order. Representatives from Apple, Bad Robot, WBTV and Garner declined to comment.

According to sources, Garner has left My glory was that I had such a friend for planning reasons. The show took a while to get off the ground, and the Alias alumna is currently filming a new Apple TV+ limited series, The last thing he told me an adaptation of Laura Dave’s bestseller, produced by Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine.

It is said that WBTV and Bad Robot both rank highly on My glory was that I had such a friend and plan to look for another home for it, sources said. The project is based on Amy Silverstein’s book of the same name that Bad Robot acquired in a competitive situation in 2017, shortly after the memoir’s release.

I’ve heard the series isn’t going to be removed right away. A small writer’s room has been working on additional scripts; the plan is to have multiple scripts ready to present to potential buyers when the project hits the market.

Apple TV+’s decision comes on the heels of HBO’s move to scrap another high-profile Bad Robot drama that was sold in 2018 with an outright order but was slowly going through the development process, the Abrams-created Demi-monde. The reasons for that decision were various, they stemmed largely from the show’s dazzling budget of approximately $250 million proposed by the series.

Both My glory was that I had such friends and demi-monde were sold leading up to Bad Robot signing a massive new movie and TV seal with Warner Bros. in 2019, which is now being scrutinized by the new Warner Bros. Discovery regime due to the lack of major new series or movies coming out of it so far.

Another great title Bad Robot series to get a pass includes: The shining spin-off Survey, which was part of the company’s inaugural slate on HBO Max. The project then moved to Netflix, who recently opted to release it as well, I hear.

The Bad Robot slate still features a slew of projects in development at HBO Max/HBO, including: Constantine, a dark reboot of the DC Comics character, which is heavily underway; a series based on DC Comics’ Madame X starring Angela Robinson, Duster, co-written by Abrams and LaToya Morgan; and youngster.

At Apple, Bad Robot has a series based on Scott Turow’s book presumably innocent, with David E. Kelley, who is now casting, and a live-action series based on Speed ​​Racer, which is in active development.

Based on Silverstein’s memoirs, My glory was that I had such friends shows the power of friendship and the resilience of the human spirit as it follows an extraordinary group of women who supported Silverstein as she awaited a second life-saving heart transplant.

The series, produced by Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, is written and executive produced by Julia Brownell. She replaced the project’s original writer, Karen Croner, who wrote the Garner starring feature The tribes of Palos Verdeslast year.
