It starred Nathan Fillion and was produced by Tim Minear.
Previously, Nathan Fillion was on a FOX show that the network ignored into oblivion.
And Tim Minear had produced a show for FOX that was cancelled four episodes into its run.
So when the two got together for a FOX show of their own, the network behaved exactly as you'd expect: It ignored the show, then cancelled it four episodes into its run.
I am reasonably sure there are high-level broadcast executives who never even knew this show existed.
