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.

I was going to ask if they had done this already with Harris's Southern Vampire series, and I see that the latest paperback features the same promotional image as HBO used for True Blood. Nifty.

I was reviewing Harris's sales on Locus Online over the past months, and suffice it to say pretty much every one of the Sookie Stackhouse books is back on the NYT extended bestseller list thanks to True Blood. It would be a real boon to broadening George's readership if the series goes forward, to say the least. Tie-in covers would make sense on the paperbacks, though I do hope that the hardcovers don't change yet again.
