Game of Thrones: Pilot for cancelled spin-off cost HBO over $30m, says former executive

A pilot for an aborted Game of Thrones spin off cost HBO more than $30m £22.5m claims former executive Bob Green blatt.

Green blatt is the former chairman of Warner Media entertainment which is the parent company of HBO now HBO Max. A new book by journalist James Andrew Mille entitled Tinderbox: HBO s Ruthless Pursuit of New Frontiers, features an interview with Greenbelt, in which he discussed the spin off. With Game of Thrones coming to an end in 2018, HBO began developing several prospective spin-offs for their epic fantasy hit. According to the book Greenbelt entered the decision making process after show runner Jane Goldman s prospective Thrones pilot had already entered production. They had spent over $30m on a Game of Thrones prequel pilot that was in production when I got there  he said per Insider. And when I saw a cut of it in a few months after I arrived, I said to HBO s chief content officer Casey Bloys This just doesn’t work and I don’t think it delivers on the promise of the original series. And he didn’t disagree  which actually was a relief.

So we unfortunately decided to pull the plug on it  he continued. There was enormous pressure to get it right and I don’t think that would have worked. Blonde ambition Emma D Arcy as Rhaenyra Targaryen and Matt Smith as Daemon Targaryen in  While the project  which was reportedly set thousands of years before the events of Thrones  was abandoned  the network is looking to develop a number of other spin offs  including House of the Dragon  which arrives on HBO Max next year. I m the one who encouraged Casey to green light  House of the Dragon to series, Green blat said. I said  Lets not risk $30m on a pilot. So I said Lets not make a pilot. Lets get a great series that we feel good about, and just make it. Or not.  The Independent has contacted HBO Max for comment.
