Game of Thrones Writer Bryan Cogman Inks Overall Deal with Amazon


Bryan Cogman, known for his extensive work on the hit series Game of Thrones, has signed an overall deal with Amazon Studios to create original shows.

The Emmy Award-winning producer and writer will work exclusively with the Amazon Studios team on creating original TV series that will premiere globally on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories.

Cogman initially began working on Game of Thrones an assistant to creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. He rose to write many key episodes in the series history. From there he became a co-executive producer of the series and currently is working on several projects.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled and honored to start the next phase of my career with Amazon. I’m grateful for the opportunity and excited to start writing,” said Cogman.

“We’re proud to be in business with Bryan, who has written some of the most memorable and exhilarating television in recent history,” said Albert Cheng, co-head of television at Amazon Studios. “His storytelling prowess is undeniable, and we cannot wait to introduce his voice to our Prime Video audience.”
