Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss explained: “We're starting a bit later because at the end of this season, 'Winter is here' – and that means that sunny weather doesn't really serve our purposes anymore.

“There are less episodes this year, so they spent more money on those episodes.

So, the whole scale of it is up.” Also of note: the final episode will be a reported 90 minutes long, marking the show's longest episode yet!

Other directors include Carlton Cuse, who also serves as showrunner, Patricia Riggen, and Morten Tyldum (“The Imitation Game”), who directed the pilot.

"Chardee Mac Dennis: The Game of Games" is the seventh episode of the seventh season of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

However, thanks to the show’s huge ambitions for the upcoming episodes, they’re spending just as much time filming this season as previous ones.

“Season seven has much more ambition,” Kit Harrington - who plays Jon Snow - previously said.

“It’s an original story, so it’s not an adaptation of any of the novels,” director and executive producer Daniel Sackheim told Indie Wire.

“But I think it’s inspired in the same way as the Harrison Ford movies.” Speaking after the Director’s Guild of America panel at Saturday’s Television Critics Association press tour, Sackheim confirmed that the series, starring John Krasinski as the titular hero, will premiere in 2018 on Amazon. He was a regular man and a hero.” This description ties directly to the character Clancy first created in “The Hunt For Red October”; a man who worked as a civilian long before he accepted a job at the CIA.

The Episode app is a mobile storytelling network and platform.

Episode features interactive Hollywood-caliber stories built from the ground up for mobile, not the passive entertainment of TV and movies.

“I think all those Jack Ryan movies were fantastic,” Sackheim said.
