LESS THAN ZERO, SEARCH AND DESTROY Will Not Go Forward at Hulu

LESS THAN ZERO, SEARCH AND DESTROY Will Not Go Forward at Hulu

Deadline reports that Hulu will not proceed with two pilots, drama Less Than Zero and comedy Search and Destroy.

Less Than Zero, based on Bret Easton Ellis' novel, was created by Craig Wright and FOX 21 Television Studios. Adapted by Wright and directed by Brett Morgan, Less Than Zero followed Clay (Austin Abrams), a college freshman returning home for Christmas to spend time with his ex-girlfriend and his friend who struggles with addiction.

"It was a tonally very ambitious but ultimately it didn't feel like the elements came together," Hulu SVP Craig Erwich told Deadline.

Search and Destroy, set in the feminist and fiercely independent punk scene of the 1990s, was from Carrie Brownstein and Annapurna Television. Written and directed by Brownstein, Search and Destroy was loosely based on her bestselling memoir Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl. The pilot centered on Karen Wolff (Taylor Dearden), a 22-year-old from the suburbs of the Pacific Northwest. Karen's unstable childhood has left her feeling disconnected and like a perpetual outsider, so she attempts to find a sense of belonging through creativity and community

"We loved working with Carrie. It was very special project but ultimately didn't fit our needs at the time," Erwich said.

"The pilots versus series, a lot of factors go into that decision, and we make the decision based on the individual circumstances around each of these projects," Erwich said. "There are some projects that require more tonal proof of concept; sometimes we prefer to do a pilot to see if we can get it right."
