EXCLUSIVE: Maybe The Life & Times Of Tim should be renamed The Many Lives of Tim. The underrated animated series by Steve Dildarian has been quietly cancelled by HBO after two seasons. But there is a chance that the show would continue somewhere else. I hear producing company MRC has taken the project to Comedy Central, Adult Swim and TBS and there is interest from more than one place. A deal would be complex as it would include the existing 20 episodes as well as a potential new season of the show, about a guy who finds himself in increasingly awkward situations at work and at home. Tim started off as a 2007 pilot at Fox produced by Warner Bros. TV and studio-based Good Humor TV. After Fox passed on the pilot, it was taken to Comedy Central, which was interested but WBTV couldn’t close a deal there and eventually released the project. MRC then came in and set Tim up at HBO with a 10-episode order with Dildarian and Good Humor on board. The second season of Tim ran in a block with another MRC-produced animated comedy series, freshman The Ricky Gervais Show, which has been renewed by HBO.
