Lights Out's executive producer Warren Leight has revealed that he would love the show to be picked up by another network.

The series was cancelled by FX after one season but Leight told The Hollywood Reporter that some other broadcasters have considered airing it.

However, Leight admitted that he is not particularly optimistic about the show's future.

"People express 'maybe' kind of interest," he said. "I would love to believe it when it happens. My sense is it's unlikely Showtime would pick up a show that had been on basic cable. There were feelers put out to them. They have a new guy running it - I don't think he needs to make his name by picking up somebody else's show."

Leight, who had been planning a second season of the show, continued: "People have made the rounds. I think DirecTV is not as keen on this as they may once have been - I don't mean on Lights Out, I mean saving shows. Agents are doing their job. There are few outfits as it is for serialised drama and most of them don't have that many slots. If they do have slots, they want to fill them with their own development."

Leight also revealed that he is not yet sure what he will do next.

"I have ideas for series but I don't have a clear path to a new series immediately," he said. "I'm listening to possibilities about taking over existing shows."
