The news comes as HBO is hoping to be a more consistent and entertaining source for the Oscars this year.
The network is hoping the awards season will finally be a time where it has to get more diverse in its casting and editing decisions, and is trying to make a few bolder decisions with the shows it does air.
But it’s still not a done deal.
The showrunner of the upcoming Emmy season, the late Michael Ausiello, has been critical of the network’s casting decisions, telling The Hollywood Reporter last month that the showrunners have “to do a better job” of choosing their guests and have “an amazing understanding of the history and culture of Hollywood.”
But the network is hopeful that, in the coming weeks and months, they’ll get a chance to get back to the same decisions.
“We’re hopeful we can be more diverse, but we have to do a great job with it,” said HBO executive VP of programming and production Alex Gansa.
“The history and the history of the entertainment industry is so rich and diverse, and there’s a lot of history that you don’t see reflected in this show.”
“The Prince” is a comedy about a man who falls in love with a girl named Mia and moves into a posh apartment with her.
The series has been a hit for HBO in recent years, and it is slated to debut its second season on Feb. 18.
(The network has not announced a release date for the second season.)
According to the Variety podcast, the series is also currently seeking to find a female lead in the role of Mia’s mother, and while Gansas comments may be seen as the showrunner being dismissive of the show’s chances, he also told the podcast that the network “can’t have it all.”
In a statement to Variety, Ausiells reps said: “We believe the next step in the series will be to find an actor for the lead role of the daughter.
That would include the actor in the family, or family friend, or friend of the family.
In the meantime, we look forward to getting to work with HBO on that.”
It’s not the first time that Ausiella has said that he believes “The Princess” will not get a nomination this year, but he did say that the series should have a chance at winning, even if it was not a big hit.
“In the past, the first place I’d been put was the second-place show that won the awards, The Big Bang Theory,” he said.
“So I’m just hopeful that this time, if we don’t win, we’ll still be able to put a show on the awards table.”
