The Last Of Us Might Just Be HBO's Most Expensive Show Ever
LINK

quote:

“This project well exceeds the eight figure per episode mark,” Petti says, “so there is a multiplier effect on our economy in terms of its impact. There are hundreds of related businesses benefitting from the plethora of work.”


A budget this large will place the series high up on the list of most expensive television shows ever made, among fellow HBO productions like Game Of Thrones and The Pacific, as well as recent Disney+ series like The Mandalorian. By its eighth season, Game Of Thrones’ budget had moved from $10 million per episode to upwards of $15 million, dropping major bucks on battle scenes and animating those dragons. Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks helmed the 2010 miniseries The Pacific for HBO, with a combined budget of $200 million. The series leveled out at $20 million per episode to create the perfect WWII battle scenes.

re: The Last Of Us Might Just Be HBO's Most Expensive Show Ever
These studios are spending some serious money on these shows, there is a bit of an arms race.

For instance, it just came out that Amazon's Wheel of Time adaptation (which already started filming Season 2 yesterday before Season 1 even has an announced release date), the budget is likely over 100 million for 8 episodes, so over 12 million an episode.

That isn't even mentioning their LotR TV show which will easily be the most expensive TV series ever produced.

Just because you spend a shite ton of money on something, doenst make it good.

I have no idea what this show is... But lemme guess:

Some sort of sci-fi/doomsday angle and some people even have powers.

A woman is probably the lead or main character.

There is a ton of diversity casting for no reason.

Someone is probably gay.

The show will suck and won't last 3 seasons.

...

There's almost nothing more of a lock now than HBO creating a shitty show.

Expect no more than two seasons, then. Carnivale and Rome know what time it is.

This is like saying there’s almost nothing more of a lock now than Bama losing 8 games

a pretty mediocre game is getting a huge budget?

Great idea HBO.

Imagine thinking ‘Succession’ isn’t incredible television.

Out of curiosity, if you think everything on HBO sucks, what do you think are the best shows on tv right now?
