According to the Hollywood Reporter, A&E has lowered the ax on "The Cleaner," the drama starring Benjamin Bratt.
The show finished what I thought was a stronger-than-the-first, 13-episode season this month.
On "The Cleaner," Bratt played a former drug addict who used extreme methods of intervention to help other addicts. With its cancellation, and the cancellation of "The Beast," the show that starred Patrick Swayze, A&E is out of the scripted drama business.
Maybe the network figured that with their hit "Intervention" they were telling the story of addiction powerfully already. And they have another hit in "Hoarders."
Still, it was nice having Bratt back on TV.
