$250m for 36 episodes...holy shit. IIRC the budget for TG was around ?500k per episode so 36 episodes would cost ?18m. So what all this means is they pretty much multiplied their old budget by (almost) 10 and they don't have to deal with BBC political correctness bullshit. Ladies and gentlemen, our boys have hit gold!
Awesome news, but knowing I have to wait for more than a year makes me kinda sad (IIRC the longest gap between TG series' was just under a year due to the Olympics or World Cup).
I heard the budget before was a LOT more when you included what the hosts were paid, which the Amazon price includes.
