"Game of Thrones" showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have signed an overall deal with Netflix, reportedly worth a nine-figure sum.
According to Deadline, the "Game of Thrones" showrunners agreed a nine-figure sum with the streaming giant to write, produce and direct new series and films after being locked in a three-way bidding war that also involved Amazon and Disney.
And the pair feel "honoured" to be working with Netflix after enjoying a "beautiful run" with HBO, the home of "GoT".
The directors said in a statement: "We've had a beautiful run with HBO for more than a decade and we're grateful to everyone there for always making us feel at home.
"Over the past few months we've spent many hours talking to Cindy Holland and Peter Friedlander, as well as Ted Sarandos and Scott Stuber. We remember the same shots from the same '80s movies; we love the same books; we're excited about the same storytelling possibilities.
