ABC's "Brothers & Sisters;" "Dirty Sexy Money" to Shut Down Soon
Greg Berlanti, the executive producer of ABC's "Brothers & Sisters" and "Dirty Sexy Money" said on the picket lines on Thursday his shows will have completed 12 and 11 episodes respectively before shutting down in the next couple of weeks.
The cast and crew of "Brothers & Sisters" led by Sally Field (who appears to have gotten into both her Norma Rae and Nora Walker characters) and her on-screen sons Dave Annable and Matthew Rhys accompanied their show runner in protest on Thursday.
"Brothers & Sisters" is currently filming the 10th episode of the series "The Feast of the Epiphany," while "Dirty Sexy Money" has begun work on the 11th episode called "The Fantini Brothers."
The latter was originally supposed to air in January as its storylines takes place after the show's Christmas episode "The Nutcracker". It is not clear when (and if) it will make it onto the air.
13 scripts have been written for "Dirty Sexy Money" but with the writers and show runner walking out of production, the studio appears to have opted not to film the last two scripts as they are often needed for last minute polishing.
