Screw it, we’re going to make a new show and just call it Tits and Dragons, says HBO


HBO to make Tits and Dragons

HBO is to fill the gap in schedules and hold on to audiences left by Game of Thrones by cutting to the chase and making a new series straight-up called Tits and Dragons, according to reports.

“If there’s one thing the last six years has proven it’s that all you need to hold an audience is flying lizards eating people and plenty of gazoingers bouncing around the place”, showrunner Simon Williams told investors.

“We could do all the legwork of ‘creating a new property’ and ‘generating intellectual property’, but then we thought screw that. Who do you think we are, the BBC?”

The channel apparently brainstormed different formats for a new property, including ideas about topless women on spaceships, partially-clothed women with machine-guns,  and suggestively-clad women riding dinosaurs before deciding to stick to a tried and true format.

“We’ve got a winning formula – fire-breathing lizards and acres of boobs all over the shop – so why change that now?”, they told us.  “The audience probably won’t even notice.”

A casting call for the new series is looking for actors to play empowered, complex female characters and multi-layered, intelligent male ones, both with enforceable nudity clauses in their contracts.

HBO subscriptions have jumped 18% on the news.
