BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- An HBO executive says it's unimaginable that a drama pilot featuring one of James Gandolfini's final performances will air.
Gandolfini shot a pilot for Criminal Justice, an adaptation of the 2008 BBC series. Gandolfini played a New York City attorney.
The 51-year-old star of The Sopranos died of a heart attack in June.
HBO programming president Michael Lombardo told the Television Critics Association on Thursday that he couldn't imagine airing the pilot with Gandolfini since he wouldn't continue with the drama.
Criminal Justice was being restructured as a miniseries.Lombardo says it's difficult to think of recasting Gandolfini's part. He didn't indicate what the drama's future would be.
