Earlier this week, Showtime canceled United States of Tara, the series created by Diablo Cody, executive produced by Steven Spielberg, and starring Toni Collette, who picked up an Emmy for her portrayal of the title character, a woman with dissociative identity disorder. What the hell happened? The show is good! We spoke with Cody to get her take on what went wrong (beyond low ratings), how she’s taking the news, and where she is with her next two feature films. New York Magazine’s complete interview with Cody can be read here.

Unfortunate news from Showtime today. The U.S. cable network has decided not to move forward with “United States of Tara.” The Toni Collette comedy, which centers on a mom who suffers from multiple personalities, will be ending after its third season ends this summer. Tara, created by Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, premiered in 2009 to solid ratings, but began to diminish in viewership as seasons progressed. It premiered its current season to 411,000 total viewers and a 0.2 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic, down significantly from its Season 2 launch, when it averaged 816,000 and a 0.4. Collette won an Emmy in 2009 and a Golden Globe in 2010 for her performance. It’s a mixed bag for Showtime, as the network announced on Monday that Edie Falco’s “Nurse Jackie” will be back for a fourth season.

The distinguished Australian actor Bill Hunter, best known for his roles in films such as Strictly Ballroom and Muriel’s Wedding – playing Toni Collette’s father – has died the age of 71. During an acting career lasting more than five decades, Hunter had parts in more than sixty films, developing a reputation for portraying irascible and outspoken characters. When news of his deteriorating condition emerged last week, a cavalcade of prominent figures in the Australian film and television industries lined up with messages of support, including this quote from Toni Collette:

Bill may come across as a gruff bloke but he has poetry in his blood and a sweet heart. I am so lucky to have worked with him in the early days of my career. I am sending love, hope and peace to Bill and his family.
