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.
