Marco Cancelled!

MARCO CANCELED!!
By Corey Floyd

Sad to say that of all the Netflix original shows Marco Polo is the first one to be canceled. Yes, folks, out of the forty plus original shows this one failed first. Season one immersed us in a new world and the ratings reflected it. There was conflict, betrayal, and violence. It was being compared to HBO’s Game of Thrones but obviously based more in reality with splashes of history dabbled in it. The Weinstein company who produced the show reported a 200 hundred million dollar loss. Harvey Weinstein was quoted saying

 “Netflix has been incredible to give us the room to make a series with a cast true to every principle of diversity. It’s a bold network that allows you to do that and support us in the way that Netflix did. As many people know, Asian history and the world of martial arts have fascinated me for all of my careers — I’ve made many movies around these topics and this genre, and now this TV show I’m so proud of. John has been a great partner and we’re both fascinated to continue exploring this exciting period in history on future projects together.”

Now this is their first failure in the original series department. Some programs had a short lifespan Hemlock Grove only had three seasons I didn't have a chance to get stale so it came and went. Marco Polo won’t be the last show either 70s-80s hip hop drama “The Run Down” is missing a lot of views and they hope that the release of the rest of the second season will save it  The gritty teen drama “Between”  has two seasons done and are waiting to hear if they get a third both shows are great I suggest you check them out.
