WGN America's live-action Scalped recently completed filming of its pilot, but the show could end up jumping to another network, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This news comes as WGN America's parent company Tribune Media was tentatively acquired in a $3.9 purchase by Sincliar Broadcast Group. THR cites unnamed sources saying that Warner Bros. Television, who is producing the Scalped show, is "exploring other potential homes for the adaptation."
In April WGN cancelled Outsiders despite earning the highest rated quarter in the network's history. At the time, CEO Peter Kern said the move was to reallocate resources "to a more diverse programming strategy".
"It's a complete pause at WGN America," an unnamed source told THR. "It's unclear if they'll still have scripted there. I had something being shopped there, and talks suddenly just stalled. They're figuring out what they're going to do and if they even continue on with scripted."
