HBO cancels 'Hello Ladies' and 'Family Tree'
HBO has decided not to move ahead with new seasons of Hello Ladies and Family Tree, two comedies that launched last year to favorable reviews but failed to capture the zeitgeist like Girls.
Hello Ladies was adapted by Stephen Merchant’s stand-up show of the same name. It starred the comedian as an Englishman looking for love in L.A. The series will end with a special.
Family Tree is a documentary-style comedy from Christopher Guest and Jim Piddock. It bowed in May and starred Chris O’Dowd as a young man investigating his lineage.
