HBO Cancels Its “Corrections” Plans

HBO has scrapped plans for its high-profile and expensive drama pilot “The Corrections” reports The Live Feed.

The pilot was first announced last year and consisted of some major heavy weight talent. Noah Baumbach and Scott Rudin were to produce, the story was based on a Jonathan Franzen best-seller, and the likes of Ewan McGregor, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Chris Cooper and Dianne Weist were set to star.

The project joins several scrapped drama pilots at the network this year including “Da Brick” and “40”. The news comes as the cabler picked up the Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson-led anthology series “True Detective” earlier this week.
