Prime Video has canceled several of its TV projects.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Prime Video has ended first-year series Harlan Coben’s Shelter starring Jaden Michael, The Horror of Dolores Roach and sophomore series With Love. The latter two shows were both executive produced by Gloria Calderón Kellett.
In Harlan Coben’s Shelter, Michael played a teenager who moves to a new town after the death of his father. Soon after moving, he becomes involved in uncovering the disappearance of a classmate.
The Horror of Dolores Roach is based on the podcast of the same name as well as the play Empanada Loca. The series starred Justina Machado as a woman who is released after enduring an unjust prison sentence and goes to the limit to remake her life in her now-gentrified New York City neighborhood.
With Love stars Emeraude Toubia and Mark Indelicato as siblings who experience the highs and lows of love and life experiences. Each episode centered around a different holiday. The series series lasted for two seasons. It also starred Rome Flynn, Isis King, Desmond Chiam, Constance Marie and more.
The three cancellations directly impact the streamer‘s inclusivity regarding its actors and storylines. As The Hollywood Reporter pointedly wrote, “The cancellations make Prime video less diverse, as all three featured people of color in lead roles. They also come as a number of networks and streams have trimmed their rosters following the end of two industry labor strikes.”
