ABC's 'Work It' Canceled

ABC came to its senses and fired it's cross dressing comedy Work It. From its inception the show was heavily criticized for it's none-too-subtle rehashing of the 80's sitcom Bosom Buddies and by the LGBT community (including moi) for it's potential negative impact on the trans community.

"ABC Entertainment Chief Paul Lee told reporters last week that he didn’t understand the response from the advocacy groups. He has said in the past that, as a Brit, he appreciates the cheeky humor that comes with cross-dressing comedies like the Dustin Hoffman movie Tootsie.

GLAAD’s senior director of programs Herndon Graddick released this statement today: “While many of ABC’s positive and groundbreaking portrayals of LGBT people have been critical and popular successes, the public had little interest in this outdated show. As a result of this campaign, an important dialogue has been started in Hollywood and mainstream media about the real discrimination faced by transgender people today.”
