Fox canceled “The Grinder,” a comedy series featuring Rob Lowe and Fred Savage as brothers practicing law in Boise, according to a tweet by Lowe on Thursday.
The show was announced last August. Its premise focused on a TV actor, played by Lowe, who returns to his hometown of Boise after his series about a high-powered attorney ends. He sets out to help his family’s law firm headed by his brother, played by Savage.
The director/producer, Jake Kasden, is best known for “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story” and “Bad Teacher.”
It was only a couple weeks ago that Fred Savage shared his perspective of Boise (while pronouncing it “Boy-see) on “Conan.”
