Huge, Huge News

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.

To reiterate the same damn thing everyone else appears to be saying (I'll be honest: I haven't read all 10+ pages of comments!): I am thrilled at this news and so happy for you and wish you the best of success with the pilot, and with the series if it should come to fruition.

And I really think it will.

The story is solid; the characters are *real*; there's already a built-in fan base that the HBO people can pretty much 100% count on to buy the DVDs, action figures, wall calendars, etc. (we are already, eh?); and most importantly for them: television needs something new and fresh and GOOD to counteract the boring old CRAP that's frequently on because that is a great way for them to make money.

I wonder if they're cooing over the possible cash as much as we're all cooing over the possible series? ;)

Way to go, GRRM. I'm super happy for you. :D
