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.

If anyone can do the books justice, it is HBO. I get worried though since HBO has a tendency to pull shows for no reason or just stop production for years on end. They are very flakey. Carnivale comes to mind for me. Loved that show.

I guess I will fork over the money to get HBO again. Or wait until the full season DVD release in BluRay. Congrats!!!!!

They did pretty well with Six Feet Under, though, didn't they? I get it from Netflix, so maybe something went on that I'm unaware of.
