HBO's Double Dose of Lousy 'Luck'

HBO's Double Dose of Lousy 'Luck'

HBO has had better humpdays.

The pay cable giant is in the headlines today, but not for reasons network suits will gleefully share at the water cooler.

We first learned the network took a $35 million impairment charge hit for its just-canceled series “Luck.” The show had been given the go-ahead for a second season despite tepid ratings when a series of set horse deaths caused the network to shutter the show.

HBO also announced today that it will no longer be bringing “The Corrections” to the small screen as a series. The project, based on the highly acclaimed book by Jonathan Franzen, was to star Oscar winners Dianne Wiest and Chris Cooper along with Ewan McGregor and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Meanwhile, HBO already gave two new series the greenlight for a second season – “Veep” and “Girls” – although neither is a breakout success in the “Sopranos”/”Sex and the City” mold.
