HBO Bosses Announce New Seasons of Girls, Enlightened, Larry David Movie

Lena Dunham

You can thank the premature death of Luck for the quick renewals — and returns of Girls and Enlightened. (Both will return in January 2013.) "When we made the decision to pull the plug on Luck while they were in production on the second season, we did not have a backup plan," Michael Lombardo, HBO's president of programming, told reporters at Television Critics Association fall TV previews on Wednesday. "We have new shows coming up next year, but we did not have anything ready for that period." Both series will air their 10-episode second seasons with originals running through March.

HBO also came loaded with plenty of other announcements, including a film starring Larry David, a Rolling Stones documentary and the future of True Blood and Game of Thrones. Check it out: read more

Luck

HBO has run out of Luck. On Wednesday, the pay cable network, along with executive producers David Milch and Michael Mann, announced an abrupt end to the Dustin Hoffman-starring drama, following news that three horses had died during production.

Whether it was the threat of continued negative press, or that no one could guarantee another horse would not perish during the run of the series, the surprising and quick decision to pull the plug has caused many in the media to theorize as to why.

HBO cancels Luck after three horses die during production

When a third horse died Tuesday during filming for the second episode of the second season, HBO quickly announced that all use of horses on the show would be suspended indefinitely. (Two other horses died last year during the filming of the first season.) But... read more
