Game of Thrones' deadly finale teased by HBO execs

HBO green lights new Israeli adaptation

Did an HBO boss just hint at loads of Game of Thrones character deaths?

The final season of Game of Thrones is now in production, which means that the spoilers will flow like the blood of your enemies soon enough. "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".

Francesca Orsi, HBO's senior vice president of drama, spoke at a television conference in Israel about the network's future plans for the franchise.

"From a budget standpoint going into season two of Big Little Lies without any options in place we've been... um... short of raped", she said.

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). The surprise second season renewal of Big Little Lies reportedly came with a significant bump in salary for stars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman, who as THR reports, were able to negotiate significant raises (along with the rest of the women in the cast) based on competing salaries handed out by rival networks.

"That's why it spawned three, four, five spin-offs".

The first official Paralympic Games took place in 1960, in Rome, Italy, with 400 athletes representing 23 different countries. Parsons said International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach will be in attendance at Friday's opening ceremony.

Back in season one, before it became a record-breaking hit, the average episode of Game of Thrones cost $6 million.

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

We're not sure, and Orsi certainly wasn't going to clarify.

As HBO's Game of Thrones prepares to wrap up its historic eight-year run, the network is looking to continue telling more stories set in Westeros, with multiple spinoffs already in development. "More money doesn't always equal better, but in some cases the scope of ideas do require it", he added.

"We want to get out", Cunningham continued.
