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.

Oh.

Fuck.

Yes.

We just had a death in the family, and while a pilot episode of a tv series can't touch the emotion of that (even with as kick ass as the source material is), this still was able to brighten my day at least a little... And I needed that.

(Plus, he was a bit of a dick, tbh.)

So here's hoping HBO picks up the pilot! They'd have to be stupid not to!

Yay!
I can't wait for HBO to be the home of the best damn television there is again! They have fallen a bit to the wayside since Sopranos ended...

I hope you won't let the characters from the TV show influence your way to see them as you continue writing the saga.

Congrats!!!!!
I cannot express how excited I am about A Game of Thrones being greenlit for a pilot. In an environment where great books get butchered due to time constraints of the movie versions, it is good to see that HBO is continuing break new ground and translate novels into TV series. With DVDs & affordable decent home entertainment systems, I suspect (hope) this will become a new trend.

But I digress, I am happy for you, and hope A Game of Thrones is only the first season, and very much look forward to the 3rd season, A Storm of Swords (my favorite...so far).
