LOS ANGELES, July 28 -- HBO has canceled its sexually explicit drama "Tell Me You Love Me" after one season.

"Tell Me," a look at marriage through the stories of couples in therapy, drew plenty of attention with its graphic content. The decision to not bring it back was made almost a year after the series premiered on the pay-cable channel.

"Given the considerable amount of time that has passed and despite the best efforts of everyone involved, we were unable to find the direction of the show for the second season," creator/executive producer Cynthia Mort said.
