Fans react to end of locally made cop show Detroit 187


"Detroit 1-8-7" stars James McDaniel — an outspoken advocate of Detroit — and Natalie Martinez were not available for comment. However, actress Erin Cummings, who portrayed medical examiner Dr. Abby Ward, spoke during a telephone interview from Los Angeles last week.

Cummings, who recently moved out of her Royal Oak residence, was not surprised to hear "Detroit 1-8-7" was cancelled.

"Look at it from the perspective of the network: If you have a show that’s on the bubble anyway, there's already a show that may not gain in viewership and then you're looking at the possibility of the budget doubling for next season, that's a no-brainer. From a financial standpoint, I would've cancelled the show, too," she explained.

Cummings believed that it perhaps could have been saved if the someone in the state government would've spoken out and made a case for the show, as well as proposed an exception that it be filmed with the 40-42 percent tax rebate that is currently being debated, and perhaps cut, by the Snyder Administration, maybe "Detroit 1-8-7" would’ve been back for a second season of at least 13 episodes.

Erin Cummings Sticking With Detroit


DETROIT (WWJ) - Although the show was canceled, "Detroit 1-8-7" star Erin Cummings says she won't abandon Detroit.

The actress said she plans to frequently return to the Motor City to help promote her charity, "Mittens for Detroit."

"This means I'll be coming back once a month," said Cummings.

Thanks to the help of several local businesses, the actress collected over 10,000 gloves and mittens for Detroit children and adults this past winter.

Cummings said the charity will be bigger and better this winter. She has set up a goal of collecting and distributing 20,000 mittens and gloves for next winter.

"On Friday, we signed an agreement with the North Woodward Community Foundation who will be our fiscal sponsor meaning we are now officially a non-profit and can accept financial donations," said Cummings.

Cummings said increasing partnerships with the Detroit Tigers, ACO Hardware, Quicken Loans and other local businesses will help the charity prosper further.

Mittens for Detroit news and more from Erin on Detroit 187 cancellation


Various news sites, including Entertainment Weekly and, are reporting that ABC has officially canceled "Detroit 187."

Series regular Erin Cummings tweeted Friday: "To clarify: yes, it's official. Detroit 187 has been canceled. Thank you for the support."

Just before Erin Cummings was to testify before a state Senate hearing on the Michigan film industry, she got a message from her fan site.

"Then I saw it was posted by my fan site, and they are very reliable. So, I learned right there, it was very hard not to cry," says Cummings.

The series actor tells WWJ that it's been rumored for months that the crime drama filmed in Detroit would be canceled.

Cummings says she can't help but think that the cutbacks in the Michigan film incentives had a role in the canceling of the Detroit based crime drama.

Cummings says she will continue to come back to Detroit having fallen in love with the city and to work on the charity she begin while working on "Detroit 187".

"I had made a commitment to come back once a month because I'm the founder of 'Mittens For Detroit' a charity, (and) we just now became a 501c3 so we'll be able to start taking financial donations and doing a lot more good for Detroit," says Cummings.

Comments from Erin about Detroit 187 cancellation


"I saw it coming," said Erin Cummings, who played Dr. Abbey Ward. "The writing had been on the wall for a while. It's just devastating for the people here on the crew. Jobs are not plentiful here and that's what we need to change."

She said that shows like 1-8-7 that have a soul and stories need time to grow, but "we weren't given that time." Cummings believes that if the show had been given a second season, then it would have gone on to air for 10 years.

"Detroit 1-8-7 changed my life because it introduced me to Michigan," Cummings said. "I am going to miss the people of Detroit, the small town camaraderie with the big city opportunities."
