The short-lived show “Cult” (2013) was originally supposed to air on the now defunct network, The WB. When The WB was replaced by The CW in 2006, the executives of The CW at that time dropped the show, which was supposed to star actor Matthew Bomer originally. The show was reevaluated for production back in January 2012 with a revised version of the series was revived on The CW with a pilot order.
I have to admit, I knew a lot of people who were curious about this show and were sad to see it go after one season. I feel worse for the creators of the show who, after thinking for 6-7 years the concept of “Cult” was dead and buried, got a chance for the show to be produced…only then to see the show cancelled after 13 episodes. Talk about a tough break.
