The final season of Game of Thrones will premiere on HBO in 2019. "It was a really powerful moment in our lives and our careers.None of the cast had received the scripts prior, and one by one they started falling down to their deaths".

HBO drama chief Francesca Orsi says she is "embarrassed" for using the word "raped" to describe how she feels the broadcaster has been taken advantage over star costs for the second season of its breakoutBig Little Lies. Orsi said the network is planning to budget close to - if not just as much - on the spinoffs as the series now receives.

"On the budget for the spinoffs: "$50 million (per season) would never fly for what we are trying to do.

The table read concluded with "a 15-20 minute standing ovation" (which.seems excessive when you think about it, but hey, HBO loves their high drama).

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.

And the budgets for those spinoffs are going to be big, but not quite undead-Polar Bear big. Casey Bloys, the president of HBO's programming, announced Tuesday that the network was going forward with its version of the 2012 HOT series. She went on to explain that they planned to go big with the continuation of the franchise, with a plan of up to five different spinoffs. "More money doesn't always equal better, but in some cases the scope of ideas do require it", he added. "We can't obviously start with the budget of season eight but would it be a Game of Thrones season three budget?" "It was awesome", Orsi said.

"We want to get out", Cunningham continued.
