James Gandolfini‘s return to HBO‘s primetime lineup has been put on hold, at least for now. The pay cable network has passed on drama pilot Criminal Justice, which starred The Sopranos alum. Written by Oscar nominee Richard Price (The Color Of Money) and directed by Oscar-winning writer Steven Zaillian (Schindler’s List), Criminal Justice is a New York-set crime drama loosely based on the acclaimed 2008 BBC series of the same name created by Peter Moffat. The decision comes on the heels of HBO greenlighting Damon Lindelof’s drama Leftovers to pilot. The network also has hourlong pilot Missionary, which is still casting, and straight-to- series drama True Detective starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey.
