ABC has canceled the drama series ‘Alaska Daily’ after one season. The news is not surprising as the freshman series was not able to establish itself and find a sizable following.
The series follows fiercely talented and award-winning investigative journalist Eileen Fitzgerald (played by Hilary Swank) who leaves her high-profile New York life behind after a fall from grace to join a daily metro newspaper in Anchorage on a journey to find both personal and professional redemption.
As a reporter for a local metro newspaper, Eileen is investigating a cold case stacked with missing indigenous women with scarce details in desperate need of fresh eyes. The dark spaces where she has to investigate reveal the city’s seedy underbelly that could prove to be dangerous for Eileen as she begins to uncover secrets many would rather stay buried.
‘Alaska Daily’ also stars Jeff Perry, Matt Malloy, Meredith Holzman, Grace Dove, Pablo Castelblanco, Ami Park, and Craig Frank.
The series was developed for ABC by Tom McCarthy and is produced by 20th Television, a part of Disney Television Studios.
This is one of three series cancellations by ABC today alongside ‘Big Sky’ and ‘The Company You Keep’. The only drama series at the network whose fate has not been decided yet is ‘Rookie: Feds’.
