HBO isn't interested in showrunner megadeals that Netflix has become famous for
"Big deals like Ryan Murphy or Shonda Rhimes, even in a world where we're doing more, I still don't see that kind of deal making sense for us because that kind of volume is not what we're looking for," says HBO programming president Casey Bloys. "That's not going to change. Most of the overall deals will be connected to shows or people we've had long-terms deals with — like Tom Hanks. If we're doing more shows, there will likely be more overalls as a function of doing more shows."
