What happens when you have a great cast with comedic chops and a fun premise? You Do not ruin it! How can you do that? Well… that´s what Up All Night should explain, but they won´t have the chance, as the retooled sitcom Up All Night got cancelled by NBC. After the retooling Christina Applegate jumped ship as if knowing what was to come, and then the show went on to oblivion, thus making NBC´s decision to cancel Up All Night the only possibility.
The plot for Up All Night was this:
Reagan (Christina Applegate) and her husband, Chris (Will Arnett), are the proud new parents of baby Amy. She may have been unexpected, but life’s curve balls can be a godsend, literally. Unless you have a career that needs attention, which is exactly what Reagan has. So, bucking tradition, they decide Reagan’s the one going back to work while Chris is going to be the stay-at-home dad. Easy, right? Well, not quite.
Back at work at her high-pressure job, Reagan immediately feels the push and pull of motherhood and career while her self-involved co-worker, Ava (Maya Rudolph), can’t believe her best friend now has a baby (nor can she even remember if it’s a boy or girl!) Then her Facebook-generation assistant reminds Reagan of the free-wheeling lifestyle she and Chris once had.
Now it´s not anymore… as NBC cancelled Up All Night in an expected turn of events.
