HBO Exec Apologizes For Saying 'Big Little Lies' Cast 'Raped' Network's Budget

The explosive panel continued as Orsi noted that the high costs of additional episodes of Big Little Lies, combined with a slew of potential Game of Thrones spin-offs, could result in financial difficulty if any of the planned Thrones spin-offs make it to series.

Orsi said, "From a budget standpoint, going into Season 2 of "Big Little Lies" without any options in place, we've been. um. short of raped". She mentioned that "None of the cast had received the scripts prior, and one by one they started falling down to their deaths".

No expense will be spared for the "three, four, five spin-offs", created by writers including Max Borenstein, Jane Goldman, Brian Helgeland and Carly Wray, according to Orsi. "Then there was applause that lasted 15 minutes".

Orsi, however, did admit that HBO is facing a budget conundrum.

But new details have surfaced about the Game of Thrones finale. "We are extremely proud of "Big Little Lies" and excited for the second season". "More money doesn't always equal better but in some cases the scope of ideas do require it".


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.

Bloys said Netflix's volume demands explained the company's recent mega-deals with Ryan Murphy and Shonda Rhimes.

"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. Amazon is not paying for the travel, which is somewhat of a disgrace and Amazon needs to know that.

Orsi added that sometimes the Israeli series are "so good that we don't even want to adapt".
