‘Westworld’ Set for Fall Premiere at HBO

26 May 2016 12:07 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO has slated drama “Westworld” for a fall premiere, following delays that temporarily halted production on the series earlier this year. The network has also set comedies “Divorce,” “Insecure,” and “High Maintenance” to debut in the fall.

As Variety first reported, HBO shut down production of “Westworld” in January after the project fell behind schedule — previously having been slated to wrap production two months prior. Filming resumed three months later.

No specific premiere date has yet been set for any of the shows.

Production delays on “Westworld” were among a series of recent hitches in HBO’s scripted development that preceded this week’s departure of Michael Lombardo from his role as programming president of the network. Miniseries “Lewis & Clark,” from producers Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, suspended production in August and was put into redevelopment. HBO suspended drama series “Utopia” from David Fincher that same month, and »
