Hit television show 'Game of Thrones', partly filmed in Northern Ireland, will not suffer due to Britain's decision to leave the European Union. The cable network squashed speculations that the show would lose EU funding on Friday, reports a website.

"We do not anticipate that the result of the EU Referendum will have any material effect on HBO producing Game of Thrones," makers of the hit series said in a statement.

Some productions could be harmed because of disappearing tax breaks or subsidies, but people close to Game of Thrones said the series already has succeeded without support from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDC) for the past few seasons.
