HBO has decided to cancel Family Tree after one low-rated season. The eighth and final episode aired in July.
A docu-style comedy, Family Tree was created and written by Christopher Guest and Jim Piddock. The story follows Tom Chadwick (Chris O’Dowd), a young man who feels lost in his life until he inherits a box family heirlooms. The contents send him searching for his roots. Nina Conti and Tom Bennett co-star.
A co-production of the BBC and NBC-Universal, the eight episodes ended up averaging just 540,000viewers.
What do you think? Did you enjoy Family Tree? Would you like to see it continue somehow? Perhaps in another form?
