Amazon Cancels ‘One Mississippi,’ ‘Jean-Claude Van Johnson,’ ‘I Love Dick’

Amazon Studios still searching for widely popular original series 1/18/2018 10:06 AM Eastern
Tig Notaro's comedy about moving back to the South, "One Mississippi," is among three series canceled by Amazon.

Amazon has cancelled the original series One Mississippi, Jean-Claude Van Johnson and I Love Dick.

One Mississippi, a well-reviewed comedy with Tig Notaro in the lead, lasted two seasons. The second season launched Sept. 8. Notaro created the show with Diablo Cody.

Jean-Claude Van Johnson debuted Dec. 15. Creator Dave Callaham described it as “a bizarre meta-comedy” with Jean-Claude Van Damme playing a martial arts master operating as a black ops contractor.

I Love Dick, from Transparent creator Jill Soloway, lasted one season. Cast member Kevin Bacon earned a nomination for best actor in a musical or comedy at this year’s Golden Globes.

Amid personnel changes at the studio, including the departure of former programming exec Roy Price following allegations of sexual harassment, Amazon continues to hunt for a big, broad original series.
