(LA TIMES) — HBO has canceled its low-rated critical darling “Enlightened.”
The series, created by Mike White
and Laura Dern
, centered on Amy Jellicoe (Dern), a self-destructive woman who undergoes a spiritual awakening and takes on a path bent on reforming her company’s bad methods. The role earned Dern a Golden Globe
for the show’s debut season.
The half-hour series, which recently wrapped its second season, was praised by critics but that didn’t translate to ratings success.
