Happy Endings and Body of Proof Not Getting Picked Up by Other Networks

HAPPY ENDINGS ABC/CAROL KAELSON

Don't look now, but we are hiding under the covers like Penny after a bad breakup, contemplating Mexican sleep medication.

USA has decided to not to pick up cult comedy favorite Happy Endings, sources confirm to E! News.

VOTE NOW: Which canceled show will you miss the most?

Endings, which was canceled earlier this month by ABC, was considered a very real contender to join USA network's slate. Sony TV studios has been in active talks with USA for weeks, however, we are told the basic-cable network opted to pass on the series, as first reported by Deadline, for budgetary reasons. Sony TV is now looking for a non-network home such as Amazon or Netflix—which of course most recently resurrected Arrested Development after seven years off the air.

Also disappointing for TV fans: Body of Proof hasn't been able to find a new network either. ABC Studios has been shopping the series around since it was canceled by ABC network a couple weeks ago, and although there was talk that WGN cable network might pick it up, we are told that's a no go. The Dana Delaney starrer is lucrative for the studio overseas, and actually performed well in the ratings this season on ABC (the third most-watched drama on ABC, behind Castle and Grey's Anatomy).
