NEW YORK (AP) - After seven seasons, HBO has canceled "Arli$$," the comedy series starring Robert Wuhl as a wheeling, dealing sports agent.
"We're going out with our highest-rated year ever, critically and numbers wise," Wuhl, who created and starred in the half-hour program, said Tuesday by telephone. "Everybody has to work under a budget, and one of the decisions was maybe we should go out now."
Wuhl has a development deal with HBO and said, "I'm sure I'll continue to do projects with them."
"Arli$$," which co-starred Sandra Oh, Jim Turner and Michael Boatman, was known for its cameos from sports stars, including Shaquille O'Neal, Jason Giambi, Deion Sanders and Tara Lipinski.
