Sam Levinson

The delay was reportedly caused by Euphoria‘s Sam Levinson taking over as director from Amy Seimetz and scrapping the nearly finished project to rewrite and reshoot the entire thing.

“With Seimetz out of the picture, HBO handed the reins to Levinson, only to have him weaken the show’s overarching message, many sources say, by dialing up the disturbing sexual content and nudity to match — and even surpass — that of his most successful show, Euphoria.

“‘What I signed up for was a dark satire of fame and the fame model in the 21st century,’ one production member explains. ‘The things that we subject our talent and stars to, the forces that put people in the spotlight and how that can be manipulated in the post-Trump world.’ However, they add, ‘It went from satire to the thing it was satirizing.’”
