Producer and writer for the “Game of Thrones” prequel series “House of the Dragon,” Sara Hess, has extended her overall contract with HBO by a further two years.
As part of the agreement, she will keep creating new works for the channel. Hess penned the sixth episode of “House of the Dragon” titled “The Princess and the Queen,” and the upcoming ninth episode, titled “The Green Council.”
She also produced and wrote for the first four seasons of Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” and contributed to seven seasons of Fox’s “House.” Hess has been nominated for an NAACP Image Award for four different TV episodes. In 2015, she won for “Orange Is the New Black,” which was also nominated for Emmys in the comedy series and drama series categories while she was on the show.
Verve and lawyer Lev Ginsburg represent Hess. Executive Vice President of HBO Programming and Head of HBO Drama Series and Films Francesca Orsi: “We are thrilled to have Sara in an exclusive partnership with HBO.”
She’s a rare find: a gifted author whose work is rich in detail and nuance but always infused with a wry sense of humour. Because of her work as a writer and executive producer on “House of the Dragon,” we owe her a great debt of gratitude.
She’s committed to Season 2 of “House of the Dragon” and will keep working on her own projects at HBO while doing so.
