"The Riches" now broke

One of my favorite comedians, Eddie Izzard, is no longer on TV.

A spokesman for FX confirmed last week that the cable network has canceled “The Riches” after just two seasons, according to EW.com.

The show starred Izzard and Oscar-nominated actress Minnie Driver as a con-artist couple who assumes the identity of a wealthy pair.  Driver was nominated for an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her performance on the show.

“The Riches” was one of the many quality shows to fall victim to last winter’s writers’ strike. It debuted in 2007 with a 13-season episode, pretty typical for HBO-style serial programs, but its second season included only seven and wasn’t promoted very well.

Hopefully, Izzard will find another outlet soon for his quirky humor and improving acting chops.
