His past series have been hits for HBO, but the company has opted to pass on the latest Alan Ball project.
Ball, the man behind the HBO series “Six Feet Under” and “True Blood,” also helmed the pilot for “All Signs of Death,” a show based on the Charlie Huston novel “The Mystic Arts of Erasing All Signs of Death.”
Deadline reports that there is speculation HBO couldn’t find a place for the show in its schedule. The pilot was written by Huston and directed and executive produced by Ball. HBO is owned by the same parent company as CNN.

Hmm i wonder if its going to be as gory as true blood?
That sucks I would have given it a shot at least Allen has been really good at coming up with great projects. HBO could have put it on Directvs 101 or something, they didn't have to shun it completely. VERY DISAPPOINTING.
Ditto to Hung comments...
Absolutely anything Alan Ball Does is GREAT. Six Feet Under was the best show ever and I love True Blood, shame on HBO, our loss
Agreed. Hung is awful.
Come on HBO! Six Feet Under was amazing, and True Blood is your best series currently! If anything, get rid of Hung and now that Entourage is going away, boom that's an hour of airtime for this show!
