Kyle XY Cancelled, 10 Things I Hate About You Picked Up


-According to the Hollywood Reporter, ABC Family’s show Kyle XY has been cancelled, but three new shows have been picked up: Ruby and the Rockits, 10 Things I Hate About You (starring Meaghan Martin & Lindsay Shaw) and drama Perfect 10. All three have received 10-episode orders. Both Greek and Lincoln Heights have also been renewed.

Here’s the description for the three new shows picked up:

Based on the feature of the same name, “10 Things I Hate About You” is a single-camera comedy about the Stratford sisters — the strong-willed Kat (Lindsey Shaw) and social butterfly Bianca (Meaghan Jette Martin).

Carter Covington penned and exec produces the series, whose pilot was directed by the film’s helmer, Gil Junger.

“Ruby and the Rockits,” from ABC Studios, is a multicamera comedy from the Cassidy brothers: David, Shaun and Patrick. It stars Patrick Cassidy as a former teen idol who has chosen to lead a quiet life with his wife and two sons. But when his former Rockits bandmate and brother (David Cassidy) shows up unexpectedly with his newfound teenage daughter (Alexa Vega) in tow, the family’s life becomes anything but normal.

“Invasion” creator Shaun Cassidy and Marsh McCall exec produce.

Set in the world of competitive gymnastics, “Perfect 10” stars “Frasier” alumna Peri Gilpin and follows a group of teen Olympic hopefuls as they train and prepare for their day in the spotlight. The hourlong drama was written by Holly Sorensen, who exec produces.

    10 Things I Hate About You is a great show! It’s probably my new favorite show on ABCFamily. I love Greek and Secret Life of the American Teenager, too. But 10 Things has better acting than Secret Life and better storylines than Greek. It’s a show a lot of teenage girls can relate to: Liking a guy but being too afraid to admit it, and trying to be accepted. The only problem I really have with this article is that there is a picture of Meaghan Martin (Bianca) instead of Lindsey Shaw (Kat). Lindsey and Ethan Peck (Patrick) steal the show!
