HBO Cancels 'The Brink' After Only One Season

HBO has just pulled the plug on The Brink. 

The Jack Black and Tim Robbins comedy is over as HBO has decided not to produce a second season of The Brink.  "After evaluating our schedule and our programming needs, we unfortunately decided we cannot give The Brink the attention it deserves for a second season," said HBO in a statement. "We are proud of the first season and wish everyone involved in this show the very best." Brink focused on the governmental politics and international foreign affairs of three government officials. Walter Larson, U.S. secretary of state (Robbins); Alex Talbot, a  Central Intelligence Affairs officer (Black); and Zeke Tilson, an ace Navy fighter pilot (Pablo Schreiber). The TV series drew in 1.6 million viewers, which is a step down from HBO's Ballers, which is holding an open casting call in Miami this weekend, ratings of 2.2 million viewers. This news comes as HBO is losing several TV shows. 2016 will be the final season of Getting On, Silicon Valley, Togetherness, Veep. However, HBO is working on several new TV shows including Vice Principals, High Maintenance, Animals, Brothers in Atlanta, and Insecure.  Source: The Hollywood Reporter
