ABC Cancels Dramas ‘Queens’ and ‘The Promised Land’

Both Series Aired for One Half Season

ABC has opted against freshman dramas “Queens” and “The Promised Land.” “Queens” starred Brandy, Eve, Naturi Naughton, and Nadine Valazquez as the estranged members of Nasty Bitches, a 1990s girl rap group who reunite in their 40s and rebrand themselves as Queens. Thirteen episodes of “Queens” were produced.

“The Promised Land”, which was moved to Hulu exclusively after airing just five episodes on ABC, followed a Latino family vying for wealth and power in California’s Sonoma Valley. It stars John Ortiz as Joe Sandoval, Cecilia Suárez as Lettie Sandoval, Augusto Aguilera as Mateo Sandoval, Christina Ochoa as Veronica Sandoval, Mariel Molino as Carmen Sandoval, Tonatiuh as Antonio Sandoval, Andres Velez as Carlos Rincón, Katya Martín as Juana Sánchez, Rolando Chusan as Billy and Bellamy Young as Margaret Honeycroft. Ten episodes of “The Promised Land” were produced.
