HBO hit with backlash following announcement of 'Confederate'

Hosted by  • 

The announcement that the next project for the Game of Thrones showrunners will be an alternate history drama called Confederate was met with quite a bit of resistance. At the Television Critics gathering this week, HBO programming president Casey Bloys admitted that it was a mistake to announce the show via a press release. Some critics say you can't fully judge a show until it's made, but others are convinced this is such a questionable premise that there's no way it can be good -- especially coming from two white men. Other showrunners are upset that the Confederate news overshadowed everything else at TCA, including new shows that are actually about to premiere.
