Exec 'Embarrassed' After Saying 'Big Little Lies' 'Raped' HBO's Budget

It's no surprise that HBO is planning to do whatever it takes to keep the Game of Thrones train rolling. The cast had participated in a table read of all six episodes before filming kicked off and it was, shall we say, eventful.

HBO drama chief Francesca Orsi used some questionable terminology to describe the network's budget issues caused by the upcoming season of Big Little Lies and planned Game of Thrones spin-offs during a recent INTV panel in Jerusalem.

HBO executives said they hope to "continue the magic" of GoT with the spinoffs, which Orsi assured will live up to the original, saying the channel was "going big".

No word yet if Young eventually made it to her wedding or if her groom is still waiting for her at the alter. Young was arrested and released without going to jail after submitting to a blood draw, Scott said.

"$50 million (per season) would never fly for what we are trying to do", Orsi said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

She added that everyone stood for over 15 minutes and applauded-"It was fantastic". She admitted, however, that the choice to continue required major renegotiation with the show's cast, which includes that the transition from a one-season effort to a second season was a financial hurdle, requiring huge renegotiations with the cast, which includes Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman. HBO now has five potential spinoff ideas in development.

And the budgets for those spinoffs are going to be big, but not quite undead-Polar Bear big. "More money doesn't always equal better, but in some cases the scope of ideas do require it", he added. "It was wonderful", Orsi said.

Top Free Agent NFL WR Sammy Watkins Is Off The Market
Final terms of the #Chiefs expected deal for WR Sammy Watkins: 3 years, $48M with $30M fully guaranteed at signing, sources say. But after three injury-hit years in Buffalo, he was traded to the Los Angeles Rams last offseason.

"I don't want to out some of the partners and producers that we work with but lately a couple of the prestige pieces that have come through our door are passionately saying they want to set it up at HBO because at Amazon they don't get some of the benefits in marketing or, on 'Picnic At Hanging Rock, ' they can't travel the cast to the premiere", Orsi said.

There's no denying that it's hard to wait around for the return of GoT, and we already know the premiere of season 8 won't be until 2019 for a number of reasons - Kit Harington and Rose Leslie's wedding, longer episodes to film, etc.
