Sandra Oh to star in a Netflix Dramedy Series by Amanda Peet and Game of Thrones creators

The constant buzz around Game of Thrones since its inception has meant more eyeballs and immense scrutiny. It has also brought upon the same attention to its cast and crew members. Since the telecast of the show is done and most of us are dried up talking about the merit/demerit of season 8, any news about the cast and crew draws us to it. The latest buzz in the market comes straight from Netflix, a new junction for the Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss after their Netflix deal.

Netflix has announced a new six-episode dramedy, The Chair, that stars Sandra Oh as its lead and an executive producer. It’s about the Chair (head) of the English Department at a major university. Amanda Peet (Benioff’s wife) will write the series and also act as showrunner and executive producer. The duo of David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will too act as executive producers on the show along with Bernie Caulfied. Moreover, it stars Jay Duplass alongside Sandra. Annie Julia Wymann has co-written the pilot with Peet.

Sandra Oh comes fresh off the success of her BBC America spy thriller series, Killing Eve, for which she recently won a Golden Globe award for Best Actress. The Canadian-American actress is the only woman of Asian descent to win two Golden Globe awards, the other coming for her work in Grey’s Anatomy. Oh is a veteran actress having received a heap of praise from critics and the audience for her performances in films and TV over the last two decades. Killing Eve’s third season premieres on BBC America in April 2020. And it’s been picked up for a fourth season.

It’s a first for Amanda Peet in terms of a writer and showrunner of a TV show. She has previously penned and produced two plays; The Commons of Pensacola for The Manhattan Theatre Club and Our Very Own Carlin McCullough for The Geffen Playhouse. Peet’s acting exploits have been most apparent though, with an array of films and shows like Brockmire, and Togetherness; which was primarily written and directed by Jay Duplass and his brother, Mark.

The creators of Game of Thrones are walking further in their association with Netflix. It’s the first full-fledged show that David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will produce for the streaming giant. They had recently directed a Netflix Comedy Special for Leslie Jones.

So, the new show looks full of promise in terms of the talent on board. We hope they create something special. What do you guys think about it? Tell us in the comments.

Mysaria

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving fast with its production, and we can expect a spring release in 2022. Most of the main characters have been cast, and HBO has officially declared who’s playing who in the much-awaited prequel. With set pictures leaking quite often on the internet, the fans are getting a glimpse of more cast members in action. Recently, four new characters were added to the acting roster, according to the latest rumours.

As reported by the Redanian Intelligence, the following members are the latest addition to House of The Dragon:

Rosa Escoda as a young Mysaria – Mysaria, whose older version is played by Sonoya Mizuno, is one of several characters portrayed by two actors to accommodate the decade-spanning events of the series. She is a lowlife dancer who quickly rises in ranks after becoming Daemon Targaryen’s love interest.

Edward Rowe as Ser Howland Sharp – A knight of House Sharp from the Iron Islands.

Bijan Daneshmand as The Priest – There’s not much information yet, but we’re hoping for him to be a red priest, so we can have a look at the backstory of the Lord of the light.

Nina Barker-Francis as Jayne – No additional information about her character as well, hopefully, we’ll get more news in future.
