Jackman Disappointed TV Show Was Axed

Hugh JackmanHugh Jackman’s wife and business partner says the couple are disappointed their “Viva Laughlin” TV series has been canceled.

CBS axed the show in the U.S. after airing only two episodes because of low ratings. Australia’s Nine Network pulled it after a single airing.

“We are obviously very disappointed, but you have to take risks in this business,” Deborra-Lee Furness said Wednesday in Sydney.

The offbeat song-and-dance drama, based on the British miniseries “Viva Blackpool,” drew largely poor reviews in the U.S.

“Viva Laughlin” was the first project for Jackman’s Australian production company, Seed, which he owns with Furness.

“Doing a drama that is a musical is going to be a huge risk,” Furness said. “If I’m going to fail, I want to fail spectacularly, and it seems like we did.”

Furness described her 39-year-old husband, who had a minor role in the show, as “fabulous.”

“He did it for fun,” she said.
