Hints are now coming out Amazon killed this at Weinstein's request
This pilot had extremely good audience reaction. A good deal of positive critics reaction too. Some bad reactions from insider Hollywood critics.
Now we find out from interviews with Actress Helena Bonham Carter that Weinstein had a vendetta against the director of Casanova, Jean-Pierre Jeunet and was using his influence to attempt to damage Jeunet's work. It looks like some of the critics who panned Casanova are the very same who were protective of Weinstein right up until the allegations became too widespread to deny.
It also looks like Amazon may have possibly caved to pressure from Wienstein who was producing projects for Amazon. So if you are wondering why this stunningly good production never made it beyond the pilot, keep in mind the most powerful and abusive power broker in Hollywood had a specific vendetta against its director, Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Perhaps Jeunet blocked Harvey's casting couch. Even worse, perhaps Amazon enabled Weinstein's vendetta
For more info, which just came out, just hit google news for: Weinstein and Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Vanity Fair has an October 2018 piece on this as does The Guardian
