Dead Like Me dead

Teen reaper drama is dropped.

Showtime's Dead Like Me has been axed after two series. "They called me last week and said it was cancelled," series creator Bryan Fuller told the Ain't It Cool website.

For those unfamiliar with the show, Dead Like Me features a teenager girl called George (Ellen Muth) who is killed by a toilet seat which falls from a Russian space station.

After her early demise, she is forced to become a Reaper and collect people's souls shortly before their death.

According to Fuller, executives at MGM are "currently trying to find a new home for it, perhaps even the Sci Fi Channel."
