From a Times piece today: During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter at HBO’s Westworld premiere, programming president Casey Bloys revealed the network is open to continuing the medieval fantasy saga. “There are so many properties and areas to go to,” Bloys said. “For us, it’s about finding the right take with the right writer.”
Yup, this sounds like just about the worst idea ever, and I am extremely excited about it. Benioff and Weiss have said they will not take part in any Game of Thrones spinoffs (shocker) but the network is open to all ideas.
That’s where I come in. Let’s fire off some potential show ideas for our favorite cast, here is my top five:
Dany Struggles Adapting to Life at Supercuts
Titled: Mhysa Sorry
“A queen turned civilian, Dany struggles not only to fit her name on that tiny nametag they give people at Supercuts, but also finds it annoying to fend off the odd sexual advances of men who can’t afford $40 haircuts. Tune in next week, where she burns a woman’s hair off after not realizing the curling iron was too hot to touch.
Jon Snow Set’s A New Low-Score on Jeopardy
Title: Snow You Don’t
“Unable to secure the correct answer to a single question on celebrity jeopardy, Jon Snow finds his infamy maddening, and struggles through the everyday tasks of life like brushing your teeth, cutting your hair, and answering simple questions due to the insecurity he now faces.”
Jamie and Bronn Sexual Conquests Get Their Own Show
“Trying to get his best buddy off of the love that broke his heart (also his sister), good friend Bronn takes Jamie to Las Vegas via horseback, where they try to ‘slay’ as many women as Lannister gold can buy.’
Tyrion and Varys host a morning talk show in Seattle
Title: Wine in my Cereal
“Available both as a television show and a podcast, this new look on talk-radio combines one hosts love for alcohol, and the other’s affinity for the Kardashians and the secrets that their slave children keep.’ (editor’s note: please make this happen)
Samwell Tarly hosts a weekly cooking show
Title: Sundays with Sam
“Will it be stew again this week? Has his dad caught him yet? Find out weekly on the newest HBO show, and first cooking show on the network, Sundays with Sam. Occasionally featuring a much distraught Jon Snow, consistently looking for something.”
Send me your other ideas, @mikeyfowler18 , and let’s make HBO magic people.
