That seems to have created a bit of a scheduling challenge, because now production on the Silicon Valley season 6 is being delayed until summer 2019 in order to allow Berg to finish up his work on the second season of Barry first. But there might be more to this story behind the scenes. Read More »

HBO’s Watchmen has been officially ordered to series, but that doesn’t mean there’s a lot of information out there about this mysterious project. This show, like justice, has gone hooded – its identity remains a well-kept secret.

However, a few new details have come to light.

Game of Thrones locations

Less than an hour from Belfast, you can travel to another world.

Northern Ireland has been the home base of HBO’s Game of Thrones since its earliest days – even since the original pilot the network didn’t pick up. The mega-hit fantasy drama has already wrapped the majority of its production for the upcoming eighth and final season, but fans can still step into the fantasy world of Westeros by visiting Castle Ward, a sprawling property that doubled as Winterfell in the first season of the show.
