MRC shops toon to other cable nets

HBO has confirmed it has canceled “The Life and Times of Tim,” but Tim might have new networks where he can continue to make a fool of himself.

MRC, which owns the show, is actively shopping the toon to other cablers. Skein could make a nice fit on Adult Swim, TBS, Comedy Central or several other nets.

Created by Steve Dildarian, “Tim” ran for two seasons on HBO and was recently paired with “The Ricky Gervais Show” on Friday nights. Dildarian, who comes from an advertising background, was the voice behind the lead character and driving force behind the skein.
