Amazon has canceled The Last Tycoon, a drama series based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s unfinished novel of the same name.

The series debuted July 28. Matt Bomer, Kelsey Grammer and Lily Collins are in the cast.

The story was inspired by the life of film mogul Irving Thalberg. According to Amazon, “In a world darkened by the Great Depression and the growing international influence of Hitler’s Germany, The Last Tycoon illuminates the passions, violence, and towering ambition of 1930s Hollywood.”

A co-production with TriStar Television, The Last Tycoon is executive produced by Billy Ray and Christopher Keyser.
