Having your TV show cancelled is never a good feeling, but Pauley Perrette is making the most of having her new show, Broke, cut down by CBS as the first season was still airing. Broke just debuted in early April, and while the comedy didn't get long to find an audience, all of the completed episodes will still air as planned. Perrette has already come out and spoken about how much she loved working on the show after NCIS, and now she's shared an especially touching post on Twitter about the most recent episode.
This Thursday's episode of Broke featured Jackie (Perrette) deciding to go visit her father in prison, and the airing of it reminded Perrette of her own family, especially some time she spent with her dad while they filmed this episode. So, she took to her Twitter page to share a message with fans. Take a look!
Awww. It's clear that Pauley Perrette had some strong emotions come up when she realized which episode of Broke would be airing last night, and she was probably right in thinking that many of her fans would be able to understand what she was feeling, so she shared this special post to let them know that they aren't alone.
As Perrette noted to her followers, there are a lot of people missing their families right now. With most of the country still self-isolating, unless you actually live with some of your family members, you've been going it alone for many weeks. While people can easily do video chats with a lot of their family to keep in touch and see for themselves that everyone is doing OK, nothing really beats seeing the one you love face to face. And, with that not being an option for most of us at this time, Perrette knows that several of us are feeling what she is.
Even though Pauley Perrette clearly believes in Broke and is glad that she was able to have some family time with her father on set, she and the cast and crew didn't have long to enjoy each other's company. Broke was cancelled earlier in May, just a little over a month after it debuted, and Perrette honored the show after cancellation by talking about how working on the show restored her faith in people and her industry, noting that the people she worked with there were the "best people I’ve ever worked with," and the experience "Healed me. Changed me. Made me whole."
That's certainly high praise for the show, her fellow cast members, and the crew who worked behind the scenes. So, while Pauley Perrette's time on Broke may be over, at least she got some lovely time with her dad out of it, and the experience as a whole was worth it.
