According to Fox, money - or a lack of it. The network claimed that AMW hadn't been making any profits in years, so they canceled it in May 2011 . Lifetime picked up the show, airing it from December 2011 to October 2012, only to officially cancel it in March 2013. Lifetime reportedly had to pay Fox high fees to air AMW and use the show's title, and it eventually became too much for the cable network to handle.

As for Jonathan Frakes, I have no comment.

Of course, he has a history of playing private investigators, such as Thomas Magnum and cops, such as Jesse Stone and Frank Reagan. The way he has played such roles, especially that of the authoritative Frank Reagan on Blue Bloods, makes him an appealing and convincing choice.

Great minds. That's almost exactly what I was thinking.

Here's my list:

Jonathan Frakes
Avery Brooks
Malcolm McDowell
Bruce Boxleitner
Keith David
Michael Ironside
Ted Levine
Those are all excellent choices. Malcolm McDowell would be my choice out of those. He's just right for the narration - I'm thinking of his narration from A Clockwork Orange!

I like Bill Kurtis and Kurtwood Smith ideas. I have always liked Bill.
My list would also include:
1. Patrick Duffy
2. Sasha Roiz
3. Dean Cain - He didn't do bad with Ripleys
4. Natasha Henstridge
5. Christina Ricci
6. Jill Hennessey

Hey maybe Keeley Shayne can come back and bring her husband!


As for someone knowlegable. Dennis Franz was a cop for many years before he started acting and he was not well liked. I thought he did fine. But the shown changes and the big shoes he had to fill were a bad combo for him to overcome

With all due respect, a CGI Robert Stack would be inappropriate. I am aware that a CGI Peter Cushing was used for the Star Wars film Rogue One, with the consent of the late actor's estate, but I generally consider the idea of reviving a deceased person through CGI tasteless. Using a CGI Robert Stack would just be a way of confusing UM viewers and screwing with them emotionally.

I agree that it was shame with happened to AMW. Paying a lot of money to Fox in order to broadcast AMW was a burden for Lifetime. That kind of situation is also a big disadvantage to network ownership of a TV show. The policies on network ownership may vary from network to network or show to show, but some policies on the matter are more stringent than others - so stringent that shopping the series elsewhere would be very difficult or downright impossible. For that reason, we should be glad that UM was not a network-owned series. If it had been, it would probably never have switched networks, let alone moved to CBS after it was canceled by NBC.

The other problem with CGI Robert Stack is that his voice was a big part of what made him great. If you tried to do CGI, you'd end up with some voice actor doing an impersonation that would probably be more cheesy than creepy.
