The future of Detroit 1-8-7 shooting in the Motor City for a second season was in doubt Monday after a producer confirmed that the show is leaving its studio space in Highland Park, Mich.
“ABC has decided to vacate the stage space for now considering the unclear future of the show,” Jason Richman, a writer, creator, and executive producer for the cop drama, said in an e-mail. “But no final decision has been communicated to us.”
Also unclear is whether the state of Michigan will approve a request for tax credits to support continued filming here if Detroit 1-8-7 stays on the air for a second season.
ABC has said it won’t make a decision about renewing the series until May.
