HBO’s adaptation of the Jonathan Franzen novel The Corrections won’t go to series, EW has confirmed.

The pilot from Scott Rudin featured Dianne Wiest, Chris Cooper, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Ewan McGregor and was about a dysfunctional Midwestern family. Cooper and Wiest played the parents of three adult children.

While the pay cabler reportedly liked the pilot, there were concerns about adapting the book into series. Franzen penned the script with Noah Baumbach.
