Louis C.K. Forced to Quit Webseries Because He’s in Debt

I love Louis C.K., but even I didn’t watch his webseries. So it’s no shocker to me that he is cancelling it.

&nbsp

The humorous Louis C.K. declared the cancelation of lead webseries after stand out season, uncovering that the endeavor had abandoned him a large number of dollars in the red because of poor deals. The famous entertainer endeavored to astonish groups of onlookers with the satire show “Horace and Pete,” discharging it with no advancement, however the bet did not pay sufficiently off for C.K. to even remotely recover his expenses.

“Greetings. So. That was it,” he wrote in a message to fans on Saturday. “I would not like to say, in the last email, that it was the last scene. Since I didn’t need you to know, as you viewed the scene, that it would be the last one. In any case, better believe it, clearly, That was it. “It is a solitary affair to have done this appear and an extremely tragic thing to be done doing it.”

&nbsp

C.K. told radio host Howard Stern last week that “Horace and Pete” had left him “millions of dollars in debt. The show, which stars C.K. alongside a star-studded roster including Steve Buscemi, Edie Falco, Alan Alda and Jessica Lange, was released through the comedian’s website and cost between $2 and $5 per episode, a revenue stream that C.K. expected would cover the costs within weeks.

&nbsp

“After four episodes, the whole idea was I wouldn’t have to spend my own money after that,” C.K. said. “I didn’t promote the show. I didn’t tell anyone about it, because I got so excited by the idea of having a show appear from nothing.” The show launched on January 30 with little fanfare and few details about the plot, which tells the story of a local pub and its regulars.

&nbsp

In order to rescue himself from debt, C.K. plans to “promote, promote, promote,” particularly after witnessing how a March 9 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel dramatically boosted sales. “Sorry ahead of time for how annoying it will be to see me and hear me yammering about this show and promoting it, flying in the face of the whole idea of watching a show from nothing and seeing where it goes. But I want folks to see this show,” he wrote.

You can buy the first and only season of “Horace and Pete” for $31 total. I feel like maybe I should buy it, just to help the guy out!
