Hosted by the former Channel [V] and Australian Idol host James Mathison and rising media star Stephanie ‘Hex’ Bendixsen, Thrones 360 will air from 18 March in the lead up to the **release of series eight in Australia on 15 April.

Each Monday evening, Game of Thrones (GOT) superfans James and Stephanie will recap, dissect and rejoice in the last seven seasons of the show, said Foxtel.

The 11 x 60-minute series will also feature interviews with Game of Thrones cast members, and special behind-the-scenes footage.

“Thrones 360 promises to be a fan favourite and the ultimate companion show to the final season of Game of Thrones. It will be a must-watch every Monday night! We are also delighted to welcome James Mathison back home to Foxtel,” said Brian Walsh, executive director of television, Foxtel.

“James has enjoyed a highly successful and varied career since his early days with Channel [V] and is one of Australia’s most gifted television presenters. Securing him for Thrones 360 is a great coup.

“Stephanie Bendixsen is a star on the rise and I am delighted she has signed with Foxtel to take the next step in her burgeoning career. Stephanie is smart, funny, talented and her audition blew us away – she has a big future ahead of her. I’m excited to see what Stephanie will bring to the set of Thrones 360,” said Walsh.

Calling his involvement in the show a “dream gig”, James Mathison added: “I’m a massive fan of Game of Thrones, so when I was asked to be a part of Thrones 360, I couldn’t say yes fast enough. The fact that there are so many twists and turns in every season, plus the fact that everyone has a theory about what’s ahead, means the show is not only brilliant to watch, but also endlessly fascinating to dissect and pull apart.”

Thrones 360 is a Eureka Production for Foxtel. Sophia Mogford, John Karabelas and Howard Myers are serving as executive producers.
