HBO Passes on Alan Ball's Latest Project, 'All Signs of Death'

Alan BallHas 'True Blood' and 'Six Feet Under' creator Alan Ball finally lost his golden touch? We hear that execs over at HBO have decided there's no sign of life in his latest drama project.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the cable network decided to pass on the Ball-directed pilot, 'All Signs of Death,' which is based on the Charlie Huston novel 'The Mystic Arts of Erasing All Signs of Death,' about a slacker who joins a crime scene clean-up crew. Huston also wrote the script for the pilot.

This leaves Ball free to focus on critical and commercial darling, 'True Blood,' which is part of an already pretty full drama roster on HBO alongside 'Boardwalk Empire' and 'Big Love.' Plus, the epic medieval fantasy 'Game of Thrones' is premiering in April, and several other projects are waiting for a series verdict.



Pilots still waiting to hear their fate at HBO include the Hollywood blogger comedy 'Tilda,' the Judd Apatow-produced comedy 'Girls,' about a group of young women, Justin Theroux and Steve Coogan's 'Documental,' a comedy about the documentary business, and the Julia Louis-Dreyfus comedy 'Veep' (whose pilot is being shot next year).

Is it "All Signs of Life" or "All Signs of Death"? Your headline says one thing, and your article says another.
