->''"I've been cancelled more times than a Whitney Houston comeback tour."''
-->--'''The man himself''', on how he copes with losing a show.

Quote from the ''The New York Times'':

"To fans of the WB's recently canceled ''Series/{{Angel}}'', the writer Tim Minear is known affectionately as TheTimReaper: the master of the fatal plot twist." (The cited article can be found [[http://www.nytimes.com/2004/04/18/arts/television/18NUSS.html?ex=1397620800&en=2c0268b0284dfdb3&ei=5007&partner=USERLAND here]].)

Also known for shows on FOX that get cancelled very quickly. In the space of five years, he produced ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' (11 episodes aired), ''Series/{{Wonderfalls}}'' (4 episodes aired), ''Series/TheInside'' (6 episodes aired), and ''Series/{{Drive}}'' (4 episodes aired). Then he became a consulting producer on ''Series/{{Dollhouse}}'', which actually got ''two'' seasons before it got canned. He then produced the critically beloved ''Series/{{Terriers}}'' for Creator/{{FX}}, which attracted fewer viewers than the average high-school play. He worked on ''Series/TheChicagoCode'', which was canceled by Creator/{{FOX}} after its 13 episode first season. He is currently executive producer on ''Series/AmericanHorrorStory'', which is a bona fide hit for Creator/{{FX}}.

To his credit, he at least maintains a sense of humor about his bad luck: in addition to the article quote above, his Twitter handle is [[http://www.twitter.com/CancelledAgain @CancelledAgain]].
