Game of Thrones' creators seal $200M Netflix deal

Published: 08th August 2019

David Benioff and DB Weiss were reportedly in talks with major Hollywood companies including Amazon and Disney to produce new films and TV series. But the duo has signed a massive deal of  $200M with streaming giant Netflix. 

Benioff and Weiss brought Game Of Thrones, based on George RR Martin’s series of fantasy novels, to the small screen with unprecedented success. The show, which proved wildly popular throughout its eight-year run, came to an end earlier this year.

Game Of Thrones has so far received 47 Emmy Awards, which recognise excellence in TV, and is expected to add to that total in September after its eighth and final season earned a record-breaking 32 nominations in July.

Benioff and Weiss are currently creating, writing, and producing a Star Wars trilogy and are set to adapt the prison break drama Dirty White Boys for Disney.
