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.

Congratulations, sir. We await with bated breath for more news.

I am slightly embarrassed to admit that I sometimes daydream about what the coming attraction trailer would be like.

"Winter is coming to HBO. Hot damn."

AWESOME. That made me laugh harder than was probably necessary, but I am so delighted -- for you, for HBO, and for me!

Congratulations on the good news, Mister Martin! I cannot wait to pass it on to my partner. We were thrilled when we first heard of the TV plans, and now I feel that same frantic excitement again. Rock on, and good luck!
