Huge, Huge News

Spain
HBO has given the production order.

They will be filming the pilot episode of A GAME OF THRONES.

It's just the pilot so far. They'll need to see that before they decide whether to proceed with a full season's episodes. So let's all hope the pilot will kick serious ass.

It should. David Benioff and Dan Weiss did a terrific job with the script. And yes, all of you can relax, it's very faithful. Dan and David will be the executive producers for the pilot and (we hope) the eventual series.

More details when I have 'em. The news is very fresh. HBO just issued their own press release, which should be up on their website soon, if it's not there already.

Winter is coming to HBO. Hot damn.

Yee Haw!!!
Fantastic News.

I sure hope it all works out and we'll have something on the caliber of ROME in a year or so.

Congratulations!
I am really looking forward to this, and hope that it works out. With luck, I can use it to finish evangelizing Song to the last few holdouts among my friends. Good job!

I am very happy for you. But more importantly, I'm even more happy for me.

I am so very glad the books were picked up by HBO and not one of the network channels, I would hate to see Song of Ice and Fire ruined the way ABC is currently making a mockery of Sword of Truth.

Very excited.

This is definitely one of the most exciting posts I could imagine seeing in your journal, Mr. Martin! I'm definitely ready for this one!
Are you going to try and get a cameo in any of the episodes? That would be great.

Better & Better
First the Phillies, then Obama, then this news... Wow. This year just can't get much better! Short of GRRM showing up at my door to offer me a part in it (I actually am an actor (part-time) of at least passable talent... ;-)
