HBO may have to pay its debts to the enemy after all.

The fleet of hackers behind recent leaks of show treatments, scripts, and upcoming episodes hit the premium cable network with another attack on Monday — and this leak holds the most sensitive stolen data yet.

The latest cache of compromised documents includes a Game Of Thrones script from an upcoming episode, a month's worth of emails from an HBO executive, and even the cast's emails and phone numbers!

One document allegedly includes HBO CEO Richard Plepler's contact list, along with a GoT cast list with contact information for actors including Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey, and Peter Dinklage.

That's right — thanks to the hackers, you can dial up Kit Harington and tell Jon Snow himself to bend the knee!

According to the Guardian, Monday's leak came with a ransom note asking for a multimillion dollar payout in bitcoins.

The hackers reportedly included a video message to Plepler asking for "our six-month salary in bitcoin" — which is apparently how long it took to hack HBO's system. The crooks cheekily wrote:

HBO Hack Reportedly SEVEN TIMES BIGGER Than The Sony Debacle! It Could Even Mean Trouble For Subscribers!

It's not TV. It's a disaster.

When we first heard about the HBO hack, allegedly perpetrated by someone going by the name little.finger66, it seemed to be all about Game Of Thrones leaks.

A script for next Sunday's episode dropped online, with the promise of more to come. Then full unaired episodes of Ballers and Room 104. Now it seems much more could be at stake.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the hack could expose 1.5 terabytes of the network's data. That's 1500 gigs. That could mean a few dozen high definition TV episodes; but it could also mean something like 50 MILLION emails.

To put it in context, the Sony hack, which released all kinds of embarrassing behind-the-scenes conversations, as well as ruining potential future movie plans, was only about 200 gigs.

CEO Richard Plepler's internal email to staff called what was stolen was "proprietary information, including some of our programming." So far, that seems to mean just HBO scripts, episodes, etc. Certainly to fill 1.5 terabytes, there would have to be a considerable amount of video.

But with that size leak, the bigger fear is financial documents or personal information on employees — or even subscribers!

Let's just be glad HBO is fully cooperating with the FBI on this one!

Leah Remini

CBS is killing off Erinn Hayes' character on Kevin Can Wait to make room for Leah Remini!

When asked about Kevin James' leading lady's exit in season two at the summer press tour on Tuesday, Senior Exec VP of Programming Thom Sherman said the character of Donna "will have passed away" when the show returns.

CBS's entertainment president Kelly Kahl later added that the death "will be addressed tastefully" and "with dignity and respect":

"When everybody collectively saw how Leah and Kevin worked together in those last couple of episodes, there was just an undeniable spark there. Kevin, the studio [Sony] and the network wanted to keep that magic and chemistry going forward."

What a bummer for Erinn! Good luck, bb!

If this ever does happen, it'll provide some interesting fodder for the ongoing legal battle between Kesha and Dr. Luke.

The music producer has apparently filed documents demanding that Lady GaGa, one of Kesha's good friends who apparently knew of her allegations against Dr. Luke very early on, sit down for a three-hour deposition with Luke's legal team.

The 84-year-old claims both companies were responsible for an unethical accounting trick where they mislabeled money from the King of Pop's music as profits instead of royalties.

Fast forward to Wednesday, the music producer won the fight and was awarded $9.4 million (out of the $10 million he asked for).

What a Thriller of a court case!
