Chris Moore “didn’t want to be the Simon Cowell” of Project Greenlight.
Ben Affleck says that strong-willed produced Chris Moore “decided that he didn’t want to be the Simon Cowell” of Project Greenlight, so he chose not to participate in a possible third season. That was one of the reasons HBO chose to drop the series, which rumors have Bravo picking up. However, Affleck says that the show is now unionized, and says “Bravo would never really pick up a union show. So, we’re trying to see if we can get some additional sponsorship money, to cover the nut of producing it or maybe figuring if we can schedule down.”
