The Singles Table is an American comedy series that was created by Bill Martin and Mike Schiff, intended to air during the 2006-07 TV season on NBC.

It's notable as being one of few series that was canceled before airing a single episode.

Summary[edit]

Because of their relationship status and relationships with the bride and groom, five strangers meet at Table 18 - a table in a far corner of a wedding reception that is quickly labeled "the singles table". However, through the course of the event, each of them begin to question issues in their lives and vow to make things better. For richer or poorer, these five strangers will become good friends—and, in some cases, they may become more than that.[1]

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

On February 9, 2006, NBC issued a pilot order for the series.[2] On February 27, Adam Bernstein became attached to direct the pilot.[3] The following day saw Jarrad Paul, Rhea Seehorn and Conor Dubin cast in the roles of Adam, Stephanie and Eli respectively.[4] On March 9, Pascale Hutton was cast as Georgia.[5] On March 15, casting was completed with John Cho being cast in the final role in the series, Ivan.[6]

The series was picked up on May 11,[7] for a thirteen-episode first season.

On May 26, it was reported that producers were recasting the role of Georgia.[8] It wasn't until September 15 that Alicia Silverstone was cast as Hutton's replacement.[9]

As a result of cost-cutting at NBC and assessing it's mid-season needs, it was announced on November 6, that production had been shutdown and that only six episodes of the thirteen ordered had been completed.[10]

There were plans to air the series during the summer of 2007,[11] but those plans were subsequently scrapped and the series remains unaired.
