LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - HBO is passing on "True Blood" creator Alan Ball's latest drama project, "All Signs of Death."

The Ball-directed pilot was based on Charlie Huston's noir novel, "The Mystic Arts of Erasing All Signs of Death," about a slacker who joins a crime scene clean-up crew.

Of course, HBO has the medieval fantasy "Game of Thrones" coming in April, and several other projects are waiting for a series verdict: The Hollywood blogger comedy Tilda; the Judd Apatow-produced comedy "Girls" about a group of young women; Justin Theroux and Steve Coogan's comedy about the documentary business, "Documental"; and the Julia Louis-Dreyfus comedy "Veep" (whose pilot being shot next year).
