...which they usually do, and if I'm not entirely wrong about the job of a producer, it's to produce something that's financially sound first and foremost. If you can take a slice of the GoT pie, even in the wake of the show, you're probably doing well financially. I suppose it's easier to ride on the coattales and assume it'll do reasonably well or better, than to take a wild risk and hope it pans out at all.
