Casey BloysHBO Executive Session Q&A TCA Summer Press Tour Los Angeles USA- 26 Jul 2017

Game of Thrones is HBO's most popular series ever by a wide margin.

"She admitted: "[The table read] was a really powerful moment in our lives and our career.

Every news piece I write about Game of Thrones just reminds me of how much longer we all have to wait for what should be an epic final season.

Casey Bloys, president, HBO Programming, said extending limited series to returning shows remains "the exception rather than the rule" at the network, despite that fact HBO has done the same thing with both True Detective, which will return for a third season, and The Night Of, which has been commissioned for season two.

"George RR Martin, writer of the original books, described the end as "bittersweet" and it is", he added.

"None of the cast had received the scripts prior", Orsi said (via TV Line), "and one by one they started falling down to their deaths". "We are extremely proud of Big Little Lies and excited for the second season". Game of Thrones alone was running with a $15 million dollar budget per episode last season, and this next season won't come cheap, with the duo alluding to the fact many characters will die.

She said it would feel like "corporate malfeasance" for HBO to ignore Game of Thrones' spin-off potential, given the show's global audience.

HBO has found itself in a little bit of hot water ... or at least one of their executives has over some comments that were made recently about the Big Little Lies season 2 salaries for Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and the rest of the cast. With that said, the network is having to pay more of the going rate for some of these actors. "That's a very valuable talent".

An HBO executive said she is "embarrassed" after making a "poor choice of words" while appearing on a panel at the INTV conference in Jerusalem on Tuesday.
