Production on David Fincher’s new HBO comedy “was stopped abruptly early Thursday, with the cast sent home and told producers hoped to know more about the future of the show Monday,” reports Lesley Goldberg on The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed. The show is set in the music video production industry of the 1980s.
The story continues, “A source close to the project indicated that the show was likely not dead, but may undergo some script touch-ups and use the time to catch up on scripts.”
Nellie Andreeva, whose story on Deadline.com was published about 14 minutes earlier, wrote that shooting was stopped “in the middle of Episode 4 or 5. … I hear the decision to stop was made after HBO saw some complete episodes. I hear Fincher had asked for some time to look at the cuts and decide on the series’ creative direction.”
