HBO has decided not to pick up Ryan Murphy‘s series Open, which was described as “a multi-character exploration of the complex, ever evolving landscape of sexuality, monogamy and intimacy in relationships.”
The show also was set to star Anna Torv, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jaimie Alexander, Michelle Monaghan and Wes Bentley.
“After such a triumphant collaboration with The Normal Heart, everyone felt that Open was not the right next step for all involved,” HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said in a statement. “However, we fully expect to work together again in the near future.”
Sources tell THR that HBO wanted to redevelop the drama but ultimately Murphy opted against reconceiving the pilot.
Scott Speedman fans need not be disappointed either, he hit the red carpet last night for the premiere of his new film October Gale. Launch the gallery above to see more pics of Scott on the red carpet.
