With shows like The Sopranos, Westworld, The Wire, Sex and the City, Oz, and Game of Thrones, HBO is one of the most influential cable networks on television. And how the company came to be so big will be the subject of a new book.

Vox reports that journalist James Andrew Miller has started working on an oral history of the company, chronicling the founding of the company in 1972 to its current incarnation now that it is under the wing of AT&T.

This isn’t the first time Miller has covered a sprawling history of a company. Previously, Miller covered the history of other companies like ESPN, Saturday Night Live, and the Creative Arts Agency.
