next caller canceled Dane Cook comedy 'Next Caller' canceled by NBCThe Dane Cook comedy “Next Caller” has been scrapped by NBC, Deadline reports.

In May, the Peacock net announced it had ordered six episodes of the laffer, featuring Cook as a Howard Stern-type satellite radio shock jock forced to partner with a feminist co-host (Collette Wolfe) hired by his boss, played by “Arrested Development’s” Jeffrey Tambor.

Four of the six episodes were filmed when production was halted on “Next Caller,” originally slated for midseason, because network execs weren’t happy with its creative direction. None of the episodes will air.

NBC recently ordered full seasons for freshman comedies “The New Normal” and “Go On,” as well as the drama “Revolution.”
