London (ANI): Actress Mischa Barton's return to the small screen has been dealt a crushing blow, as CW network bosses have announced plans to scrap her fashion drama 'The Beautiful Life' after just two episodes. The show was axed after only one million viewers tuned into it to see Barton play a drug addicted supermodel, reports the Sun.
Work on the New York City-based series was postponed when Barton to was admitted to a psychiatric ward in July, and though the 23-year-old actress had given herself to work totally after her release, her stars have not favoured her.
According to Variety, CW bosses are planning to replace The Beautiful Life with reruns of Melrose Place, starring Ashlee Simpson-Wentz.
