The Life and Death of Tim, HBO cancels animated series, but will it live on?


According to Deadline.com, HBO is not renewing The Life & Times of Tim for a third season, but that may not mean the end of the show. The underrated animated series has earned a small following in its first two seasons, but has failed to break into the mainstream on the premium cable network.


Deadline reports that the show is now being shopped to basic cable networks like Comedy Central, Cartoon Network and TBS, and has had some interest from more than one of them. The deal would include the 20 episodes already produced as well as a potential new season.


Created by Steve Dildarian (who produces, directs and voices the main character), The Life & Times of Tim follows an everyday guy who, according to HBO's official description, goes "from one scandalous crisis to the next, introducing his cadre of outrageous friends along the way." It was originally produced as a pilot for Fox, but the network passed. After a subsequent deal with Comedy Central fell through, the project went to HBO, where it ran for two 10-episode seasons. This year it was scheduled alongside the first season of the more high-profile animated series The Ricky Gervais Show, which the network did renew.
