Re: Sci-fi Brilliant but Canceled or little known gems
Wild Palms, James Belushi in 1993. Which I liked at the time, who knows now.
There was a brief series around the late 90's, a science fiction noire in the vein of Bladerunner, with an android cop as the lead's partner. Anyone remember that? Like Data meets Seven (Pitt, not of Nine).
Wild Palms was a mini-series, so technically it wasn't cancelled.
The other one sounds a lot like Total Recall 2070
