LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Project Greenlight" won't be getting a fifth season on HBO.

Matt Damon told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he was shocked that that HBO didn't pick up his and Ben Affleck's show, which chronicles the production of an independent film.

Damon says that that they'll start shopping the show around again, and thinks that a streaming service like Amazon or Netflix might pick it up.

"Project Greenlight" aired on HBO for its first two seasons from 2001 to 2003, before moving to Bravo for season three in 2005. The show came back to HBO for a fourth season last year to much buzz and some controversy over Damon's comments regarding diversity, for which he later apologized.

HBO did not immediately respond to request for comment.
