NBC cancels ‘Welcome to Sweden’
U.S. viewers aren’t going to see the love story on TV’s “Welcome to Sweden” play out.
NBC has cancelled the comedy starring Greg Poehler two weeks into its second season.
Poehler’s sister Amy served as one of the executive producers of the series. It was an international production, filmed in Sweden with American and Swedish actors. It aired there and in the U.S. It is based on Greg Poehler’s reallife experience of falling in love with a Swedish woman and moving to her home.
Two-time Tony Award-winner Matthew Broderick has joined the upcoming cast of A.R. Gurney’s “Sylvia” on Broadway.
Broderick, who recently appeared in “It’s Only a Play,” joins previously announced Tonywinners Julie White and Annaleigh Ashford. Performances begin Oct. 2 at the Court Theatre.
In this 1995 comic howler, Gurney wrote about a dog who seduces the attentions and affection of a hard-working, middle class husband.
The dog will be played by Ashford, whose credits include “Kinky Boots” and Take It With You.”
The director is Daniel Sullivan. David Rockwell will build the sets.
“Sylvia” was first produced offBroadway with Sarah Jessica Parker — Broderick’s wife — in the doggie role. The producers of the revival are Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel and Daryl Roth.
