After Dostoyevsky Bombs, NBC Pulls Shakespeare

Looks like NBC is re-thinking its foray into Cliffs Notes territory.
Burned in the Nielsens by its spin on Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment--which got whipped big-time by a CBS cookie-cutter Sunday night movie called Marriage of Convenience--NBC is now yanking an adaptation of Shakespeare's The Tempest from the upcoming fall sweeps.
The teleflick, which stars Peter Fonda, was promoted as an "inventive retelling of Shakespeare's tale of love, betrayal and freedom set on a mysterious isle in a Mississippi bayou during the Civil War" and was originally set to air November 22. It will be replaced by an airing of Get Shorty.
"We probably will re-evaluate some of the literary projects we have in development here," Lindy DeKoven, the executive in charge of NBC's movies, told The New York Times the day after Crime and Punishment scored a miserable 6.1 rating and ranked last in its time period among the big-four networks.
"We knew it was a particularly difficult classic for television," she added. "But I think the audience was clearly sending us a message. The audience said they prefer the CBS movie, which was really a far more traditional kind of television movie."
