NEW YORK, March 20 (UPI) -- Despite the recent cancellation of his NBC drama, "Kidnapped," U.S. actor Timothy Hutton says he might some day return to television.

After debuting last fall, the series was moved several times before it was yanked from the NBC lineup, due to low ratings. The remaining episodes aired on the Internet and the complete series is set for release on DVD next month.

"I don't know what could have happened with 'Kidnapped;' another night, another time-slot, who knows? But (TV) is certainly something I would entertain again," the star of "Ordinary People" and "The Last Mimzy" told UPI in New York Monday.

The fate of "Kidnapped" was "discouraging to everybody making it," Hutton added.

"But, going in, you know that those things happen, with television and with film, too. You could make a film and it could be terrific and then, the day it comes out, for some reason, it doesn't quite catch," he said. "The goal is never the success or award or it being a hit. ... One can hope and the only control you really have is to do your best and be totally invested."
