Roger Ebert Can’t Afford More ‘At The Movies’

C'mon. Help a brother out. 

Say goodbye to Roger Ebert‘s rebooted At The Movies. The movie review show is in danger of cancellation at the end of this season. When Ebert revived the program, he did so by paying out of pocket. Ebert explains on his blog that he and his wife footed all the bills. “We paid for the pilot. We paid for the titles. We paid for the set, the lighting, and all of the salaries … lunch on taping days, everything.”

That’s not to say that the program is officially dead in the water. There’s a chance it could remain on the air if the program finds an underwriter with deep enough pockets. Let’s just go ahead and cross Bam Margera off the list of potentials. (Ebert’s Blog)
