HBO ends ‘The Life and Times of Tim’

Animated series from Steve Dildarian ran for three seasons

HBO is calling it quits with “The Life and Times of Tim.”

Produced by Media Rights Capital, “Tim” told the story of a sad sack corporate employee who ultimately gets promoted after threatening a legal suit against his company.

Voice actors included Dildarian, Nick Kroll, MJ Otto, Matt Johnson and Peter Giles. Dildarian exec produced with Tom Werner, Jimmy Miller, Mike Clements and Leynete Cariapa.

“Tim” nearly never saw a third season, but HBO ultimately decided to give it another go.

HBO’s other animated skein, “The Ricky Gervais Show,” is set to begin its third season Friday. Higher profile for the net this weekend, however, is the premiere of Julia Louis-Dreyfus comedy “Veep,” from Armando Iannucci.

“Veep” will air Sundays at 10 p.m., immediately followed by the Lena Dunham series “Girls.”
