"We are extremely proud of Big Little Lies and excited for the second season". Orsi said when HBO picked up In Treatment in 2008 - adapted from the HOT series BeTipul - it was a real turning point. A cryptic comment from HBO's Senior VP of drama Francesca Orsi has us extremely anxious about the fate of our favourite characters. She mentioned that "None of the cast had received the scripts prior, and one by one they started falling down to their deaths".
"It was a really powerful moment in our lives and our careers". "It was unbelievable", she said of the episodes, which will air in 2019.
She said it would feel like "corporate malfeasance" for HBO to ignore Game of Thrones' spin-off potential, given the show's global audience.
The budget for "Big Little Lies" Season 2 has reportedly escalated mainly due to cast salaries. Well, that's something Orsi would not say, and that's obviously a crucial detail. "The scripts are as good, if not better, than last season".
The executives also discussed competing with Netflix and its unrivaled spending.

Orsi added that sometimes the Israeli series are "so good that we don't even want to adapt".
Asked about Ryan Murphy and Shonda Rhimes' recent megabucks deals with the streamer, Bloys acknowledged that he couldn't compete but said the creators deserve the big paydays. With that said, the network is having to pay more of the going rate for some of these actors. "That's a very valuable talent".
Producers and executives have been notoriously tight-lipped about Game of Thrones since the show's inception, but a particularly fiery panel discussion seems to have hinted at some major spoilers for the show's finale.
