Sexy Beast Updates: Paramount Network planned to adapt the “Sexy Beast” film into a series. But unfortunately, the project will not see the light of the day as the planned project has been scrapped and will not move forward.

The decision to scrap the show reached because of the budget crisis of the creators after the merger of Viacom-CBS. The scripting process of “Sexy Beast” was going on when the decision came out.

The show belongs to Paramount Television Studios and Anonymous Content. There are plans to shop the series to other platforms.

It should be noted that the Paramount Network officials have not openly stated the reasons why the show is being scrapped. Caleo was planning to executive produce the show with the movie’s writers Mellis and Scinto as well as Anonymous Content’s Nicole Clemens and Steve Golin.

The show was given a 10-episode straight-to-series order at the cabler the previous year.

Sexy Beast would have told the story of an intelligent thief who in his life’s trajectory will find himself falling over into the sensual madness of the London criminal world during the vibrant and volatile 1990s.
