Evel - Cancelled by USA Network due to Covid19



Evel Knievel will not ride with USA Network.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the NBCUniversal-owned basic cable network has abandoned plans for its Evel limited series starring This Is Us favorite Milo Ventimiglia. Studio Universal Content Productions will shop the drama, based on the life of the late 1970s-era daredevil, to cable and streaming services.

Picked up to series in September, USA had wrapped casting in December and, on the last day of prep on location in New Mexico, was forced to stop production on March 13. That's the day the novel coronavirus pandemic brought the TV and film industry — and much of the world as we know it — to a halt.
