James Gandolfini's Final TV Act Unlikely To Air – HBO Exec

A pilot adapted from the 2008 BBC series Criminal Justice, which features the late, great James Gandolfini, is unlikely to get any air time, an HBO executive has confirmed according to Fox News.

HBO Programming President Michael Lombardo told the Television Critics Association that considering the drama isn’t set to continue, the pilot may never be shown. Two of Gandolfini’s finished films are also awaiting release - Crime film Animal Rescue and the romance Enough Said - and with them in a state of completion, there shouldn’t be any complications with them coming out.

Enough Said, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Catherine Keener, will have its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September alongside Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom.

Gandolfini died suddenly of a heart attack back in June; his death hit the acting world hard, such was his warm reputation as both a fantastic actor and a great man. He is credited with revolutionising TV into what we now know as the ‘box set generation’. Best known for his role as Mafioso boss figure, Tony Soprano, Gandolfini enjoyed six exception seasons on the HBO show, garnering critical praise and awards throughout his run as the matriarchal crime lynchpin.

He suffered, though, internally, and like his characters in The Sopranos, attended therapy to deal with issues of anger, something he talked about in his Inside the Actors Studio performance. Elsewhere, Gandolfini lent his voice to Where The Wild Things Are, played a hilarious General in In The Loop and stunned critics in The Man Who Wasn’t There. He also enjoyed a rich career on the stage.
