HBO Cancels ‘Project Greenlight’

Docu-Reality Series From Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Ran for Four Seasons

HBO has opted against a fifth season of “Project Greenlight,” Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s docu-reality series about first-time filmmakers featuring a feature-length movie. “When we picked up a new season in 2014, we imagined a one season revival and decided in early 2016 another season did not make sense for us,” said HBO to “Entertainment Tonight.” “We are proud of the show and were pleased with its run throughout the years.”

“Project Greenlight” debuted on HBO in 2002. After two seasons, the series moved to Bravo. After a decade, HBO revived the series, bringing back Damon and Affleck as executive producers and mentors to Jason Mann, who was chosen to direct a film for the network.
