HBO has had second thoughts about going back to The Brink.
After renewing the Jack Black-Tim Robbins comedy for a second season back in July, HBO has done an about-face and cancelled the series, TVLine has confirmed.
Here’s the official HBO statement: “After evaluating our schedule and our programming needs, we unfortunately decided we cannot give The Brink the attention it deserves for a second season. We are proud of the first season and wish everyone involved in this show the very best.”
The Brink focused on a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men: Secretary of State Walter Hollander (Robbins), State Department bureaucrat Alex Talbot (Black) and pilot Zeke Tilson (Pablo Schreiber).
