Confederate was a planned American alternate history drama television series developed for the network HBO by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, who had previously developed the HBO series Game of Thrones. The series was to be set in a timeline where the American Civil War ended in a stalemate. The announcement of Confederate was followed by anger and criticism on social media with some describing it as slavery fan fiction. This led to the hashtag #NoConfederate, which trended number one in the United States and number two worldwide on Twitter in mid 2017. Although the series continued to be in development after the controversy, ultimately it was never produced.
