George is an integral part of the creative team [and] every move is being choreographed very closely with him. We'll have to figure it out with George. We're in conversations with him."
Lombardo on author George RR Martin being focused on his books: "[Martin] is 100-percent focused on his books and the series. [HBO execs are] not talking about ending the show in the next two years."
Lombardo on season 2 of True Detective: "Some announcements will be happening in the next week. [joking] We're going to do the next season with puppets. … The two scripts we have are…more exciting than the first season."
