'The Brink'


This just goes to show that even shows that have been renewed are not safe. After a well-received first season and a Season 2 renewal, HBO had decided to instead cancel “The Brink” — a dark political comedy starring Jack Black and Tim Robbins.

The news comes from Entertainment Weekly, who obtained a statement from HBO. “After evaluating our schedule and our programming needs, we unfortunately decided we cannot give ‘The Brink’ the attention it deserves for a second season,” the network says. “We are proud of the first season and wish everyone involved in this show the very best.”
