Amazon gave up on the series that was in production The Dark Tower, based on the eponymous book by Stephen King. According to the deadline, the company decided to shelve the project after diverging opinions about the pilot.
The studio decided to go back on the decision to order a full season because it was not confident about the quality of the pilot episode presented, the executives thought that the test episode would not have reached the same level of quality that their new and elaborate fantasy series achieved.
The Dark Tower had thirteen episodes ordered for the first season. Executive production was in the hands of Glen Mazzara and Akiva Goldsman, Responsible for Titans.
The production cast was formed by Michael Rooker, Jerome Flynn and Sam Strike, who would live the protagonist Roland Deschain.
