Amazon Studios has signed Emmy winning producer and “Game of Thrones” veteran Bryan Cogman.
Cogman will work exclusively with the Amazon Studios team on creating original television series.
“We’re proud to be in business with Bryan, who has written some of the most memorable and exhilarating television in recent history,” said Albert Cheng, co-head television, Amazon Studios. “His storytelling prowess is undeniable, and we cannot wait to introduce his voice to our Prime Video audience.”
Cogman, a co-executive producer on “Game of Thrones,” wrote 10 episodes for the HBO fantasy drama, most recently the second episode of the seventh season titled “Stormborn.” He initially started as an assistant to creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff before rising to co-executive producer. On the film side, he wrote Disney’s upcoming remake of “The Sword in the Stone” and is currently working on “The Haunted Mansion” for the studio.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled and honored to start the next phase of my career with Amazon. I’m grateful for the opportunity and excited to start writing,” said Cogman.
Cogman’s “Game of Thrones” experience should make him feel right at home with Amazon, which tapped “Star Trek” duo JD Payne and Patrick McKay to develop the “Lord of the Rings” original series announced last November.
