Said decision is tied to Ventimiglia and writer Etan Frankel's shrinking availability following the project's production shut down.

"USA is incredibly disappointed to have had to make this decision, as we were so excited about this project and working with Milo, Etan, and everyone involved," the network said in a statement.

NICK CANNON PRESENTS: WILD 'N OUT (VH1) - ViacomCBS has cut ties with Nick Cannon following anti-Semitic comments on his podcast "Cannon's Class."

We have spoken with Nick Cannon about an episode of his podcast 'Cannon's Class' on YouTube, which promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. While we support ongoing education and dialogue in the fight against bigotry, we are deeply troubled that Nick has failed to acknowledge or apologize for perpetuating anti-Semitism, and we are terminating our relationship with him. We are committed to doing better in our response to incidents of anti-Semitism, racism, and bigotry. ViacomCBS will have further announcements on our efforts to combat hate of all kinds."

UNTITLED NYLE DIMARCO PROJECT (Spectrum, New!) - Nyle Dimarco is set to star in an irreverent comedy at the company "centered around his experiences as a charismatic, smart deaf man in modern times.
