Bloys stated to Deadline, ““I would love to just have a little shout-out to my team to Francesca Orsi [EVP Drama], Sarah Aubrey [Head of Original Content, HBO Max], Amy Gravitt and Nina Rosenstein [EVPs, Programming] and Lisa Heller and Nancy Abraham [EVPs, Documentary] and their teams and the production team and the business affairs team,” he told Deadline on Tuesday. “Obviously the industry at large has been going through lots of upheavals lately, and these teams just continue to focus on the work regardless of what’s going on around that. I couldn’t be more proud of them and what they’ve accomplished.”

“This is my seventh Emmy season for HBO and second at HBO Max.,” he went on to say. “The one thing that you can’t control is who your corporate parent is. We went through AT&T and now with Warner Bros. Discovery,” he said. “But you can always just focus on the shows and keep your head down and do the work and continue to try and do the best shows possible. That’s what we can control and that’s what this team has done brilliantly.”

Congratulations HBO! We hope for more exciting years from you too!
