Scrubs Creator Says Nbc Gave Him No Respect
The creator/executive producer of SCRUBS is clearly miffed at NBC for the way the network decided to cancel the series. Speaking at the Television Critics Association's press tour in Beverly Hills Wednesday, Bill Lawrence said, "If you are [doing] a show on a network for six or seven years, and you make someone millions and millions of dollars, you should be able to end the show [the way you want to end the show]." As reported by Broadcasting & Cable , Lawrence said that he told the network that although he expected to be allowed to wrap up the show in eight episodes, he could do so in three. "And there wasn't a lot of interest on their part." Lawrence indicated that while he is not certain whether the show will continue beyond next season on ABC, which picked it up, he plans to film the season finale with the understanding that star Zach Braff will be leaving and "making a big deal about it."
