Out Foxed

Well, Fox Television has done it again.

In their long tradition of cultivating exciting, innovative programming and then cancelling it, they have reportedly just pulled the ax on the new comedy Kitchen Confidential, which careful kinemapoetics readers will remember I lauded as one of the best new shows this year.

Confidential, a laughtrackless sitcom in the vein of Sports Night, pushed the envelope of its genre with playful editing, smart writing, and great acting by its lead performers, particularly Bradley Cooper as the prone-to-temptation wunderkind chef Jack Bourdain and Bonnie Sommerville as his arch nemesis, wait staff supervisor Mimi.

It’s a sad day for television, and for me.
