Lights. Camera. No action?
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were pretty much the most powerful couple in all of Hollywood before their high profile parting… which means now they're arguably the most sought after stars in the entire world!
That's exactly why NBC is reportedly doing whatever it can to keep a positive business relationship with both halves of Brangelina — including scrapping its own shows!

According to Page Six, Lifetime was reportedly forced to completely cancel an upcoming Brangelina breakup special on Wednesday despite already filming a week's worth of footage!
Apparently, Lifetime's Vice President of Nonfiction Programming decided the Peacock Productions production wasn't worth potentially losing the first TV interview(s) with Brad and/or Angie, with a source close to the network telling the tabloid:
"The special was canceled at the last minute. The show had already booked talking heads, hair and makeup, B-roll… Staffers were working to slam it all together, [but] now they're all like, 'F*ck! We just did all this work for nothing?'"
We'd be pissed too… but it probably is the right decision.
That first sit-down is going to be GUARANTEED ratings gold, after all!

Although, Lifetime already has enough on its plate with that unauthorized Britney Spears biopic on the way. We guess the Peacock isn't too worried about its relationship with Brit! LOLz!!!
Which network do U think will score the first scoop from Brangelina??
