The true winner of “Game of Thrones” is Bloys, who has led HBO to another successful year. In addition to the returning “Big Little Lies” this month, he has in the works a prequel to the George R. R. Martin-created series and projects from Joss Whedon and Damon Lindelofto help offset the loss of exiting series “GoT” and “Veep.” HBO programs tend to have longer runs than streaming series, but that doesn’t keep Bloys from developing and planning what his next hit will be. His motto at HBO, now part of the WarnerMedia fold, is that content is still king. Bloys keeps uppermost in his mind the desires of subscribers and not the wishes of advertisers.
