The Irish TV series Hitachi Electric Appliances Derby has been cancelled after it was revealed the producers had been hit by financial difficulties.
The hit show was created by the hit television show The Real Housewives of Dublin and starred starlet Kate Mays as the wife of hitachi electric appliance maker Hitachi, who has been hit hard by the recession.
It had been shot over two seasons in Dublin, but the producers announced they would not be able to continue with the series, as the producers struggled to pay their cast and crew.
The show, which featured three housewives in the lead roles, featured a cast of around 40 people.
The Irish Times understands the producers of the series have had to find a new production company, as they have been hit with financial difficulties since they began shooting the show.
“We have had an extremely difficult year in terms of the financials,” said production producer Sarah Stirling.
“It’s been a tough year for our staff and also the producers as well, as we haven’t been able to get through to any of our other production partners, so that has really hurt our bottom line.”
The financial difficulties have been quite a drag on our production.
We had to make a decision to either pull the show from our schedule or find a replacement production company for the season.
“So we are really looking forward to the next season and hope to continue filming it.”
I would like to thank the cast and staff who have been so supportive over the last couple of seasons and I’m really looking forwards to the season coming to an end.
“That said, we are still hopeful that we can continue filming for another season in the near future, as well as continuing to do a series of specials and more.”
The Irish television series hitachi electricity appliance derby series is now in production in Dublin.
