Project That Went To Pilot on HBO Not Picked Up

HBO has not been able to find a spot for a project that it had picked up to pilot in July, reports

It was a dark comedy based on Charlie Huston's 2009 crime noir novel "The Mystic Arts of Erasing All Signs of Death." The HBO verson was to have been called All Signs of Death."

The pilot was written by Huston and used smaller, portable cameras for a cinema verite style. It joins "Miraculous Year" as another 2010 HBO pilot that didn't make it to series, the story adds.

For HBO's remaining crop of pilots, "Luck" has been ordered to series, while "Tilda" is waiting while reshoots are being done on the pilot and backup scripts are written. "Documental" and "Girls" are in post-production, while "Veep," starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, is casting, it adds.
