Off Life Support: KILLING, the TV series

Just two days after the announcement of the next title in Bill O’Reilly’s book series, Killing England: The Brutal Struggle for American Independence (Macmillan/Holt; Sept. 2017), comes the opposite news about the next in the National Geographic channel’s adaptations of the series. The network just announced that a planned four-hour series based on Killing Patton, has been scrapped.

The press release made no reference to O’Reilly’s recent firing from Fox, reports Deadline, citing instead production difficulties.

It’s not clear what is happening with the Fox News series, Bill O’Reilly’s Legends and Lies: The Civil War. A companion book is scheduled for release next week, but we were unable to find a date for the debut of the TV series.

O’Reilly’s March title, Old School: Life in the Sane Lane (Macmillan/Holt; Macmillan Audio; OverDrive Sample) has been sliding down best seller lists since the cancellation of his show. It is #112 on the most recent USA Today list, after debuting at #2.
