HBO Cancels Dark Comedy the Brink

150108-coppins-900

HBO has decided to cancel comedy The Brink after one season. This is a surprise since the network had just renewed the show after its first season.

“After evaluating our schedule and our programming needs, we unfortunately decided we cannot give The Brink the attention it deserves for a second season,” HBO said in a statement with the Hollywood Reporter. “We are proud of the first season and wish everyone involved in this show the very best.” Basically a very nice way of saying it is what it is.

Tim Robbins and Jack Black stared in the dark comedy about two political officials working through a geopolitical crisis. HBO hoped the show would give them a bit more on the comedic side but things just didn’t work out.
