hindsight-vh1-tv-review

Just when you thought all was right with the world, VH1 goes ahead and cancels one of their best new shows of the 2015 season.

Hindsight, the time-traveling comedy which was renewed back in March, was the latest scripted series from VH1. The series starred Laura Ramsey as Becca, who was sent back in time, to the day of her first wedding in 1995, to fix all of her mistakes and make the ‘right’ decisions the second time around.

The network released a statement: “Scripted series have been a successful part of VH1’s primetime lineup since 2010 and will continue to be in the future. We love Hindsight and couldn’t be more proud of the series. But in this overcrowded and rapidly changing climate, we need to carve out VH1’s distinct place in the scripted marketplace and deliver the biggest audiences possible for our series. As a result, we’re no longer moving forward with a second season of the show. We’re so appreciative of show creator Emily Fox, the cast, and the creative and production teams and look forward to working with them again.”

VH1 Renews ‘Hindsight’ for a Second Season

hindsight-vh1-tv-review

VH1 has renewed the time-traveling comedy only days after the season one finale.

Hindsight, the latest scripted series from VH1, stars Laura Ramsey as Becca, who, on the eve of her second wedding in 2015, is having misgivings about her life, her career, and her husband-to-be, Andy (Nick Clifford). Suddenly, she is transported back in time twenty years to the morning of her first wedding day in 1995, when she’s about to marry Sean (Craig Horner), a bad-boy artist who is all wrong for her. Becca has the opportunity to fix all of her mistakes and make the ‘right’ decisions the second time around – and her first move is to reconnect with her former best friend Lolly (Sarah Goldberg), with whom she had a falling out many years ago. But soon enough, Becca discovers there’s no sure-fire way to make the right choices in life – even knowing everything she thinks she knows now. One decision may have the power to drastically alter not just Becca’s future but the future of the people she loves the most.

The series has a lot of fun playing around with all-things ’90s, including the clothes and the music.

“Our viewers have fallen in love with Hindsight,” said Susan Levison, EVP, Original Programming and Production, VH1.  “From the characters and storytelling to the iconic music and fashion of the 90’s, this is a quintessential VH1 show and we can’t wait to see what Becca will do next. Congratulations to the cast and creative team behind this signature series.”

Hindsight is created by Emily Fox (Jane by Design), who also serves as executive producer along with John A. Norris (One Tree Hill).  Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman serve as executive producers for Timberman/Beverly (Masters Of Sex, Justified, Elementary, Odd Couple).  Maggie Malina (Hit The Floor, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story) also serves as executive producer as does Alexander A. Motlagh for POPfilms (CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, Finding Carter). Susan Levison and Jill Holmes are executive producers for VH1.

Nicole Richie’s ‘Candidly Nicole’ Renewed for Season 2

Shortly after the season finale, VH1 announced that they have renewed Nicole Richie’s pseudo-reality series Candidly Nicole for a second season that will air spring/summer 2015. The series is based on the AOL version with the same name, and shows Richie in her everyday activities, only heightened to be a bit quirky and ridiculous.

Richie plays up her personality and eccentric style for laughs, poking fun at herself and her life which makes her that much more likable.

Candidly Nicole has surpassed every goal that we set for the launch. The series increased viewers in its time period by 50 perfect, attracted thousands of new viewers to the channel and shared Nicole Richie’s sharp wit and comedic flair for highlighting some of the absurdities of the real world,” said Susan Levision, EVP of Original Programming and Production for VH1. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to work with Nicole on another season.”

Candidly Nicole is produced by Telepictures and World of Wonder. Richie, Michael Baum, Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey, Tom Campbell and Carrie Franklin serve as executive producers. Richie recently starred as one of the three mentors on NBC’s Fashion Star and is  repped by WME, Impression Entertainment and Grubman, Shire & Meiselas.
