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.

congraaaaaaaaaaats how exciting! tell em they'd better not screw it up, or they'll have a squadron of angry bloggers banging down their door, and probably also larry david, but he'll be there by unfortunate coincidence.

wow! great news!
That's great news!

I'm a big fan of all your stuff, particularly short stories (like "Windhaven"), but the very different tack you took with the Songs of Ice and Fire has been an inspiration!

I can't wait to see!

Great news! Congrats George!
Now let's hope they finish it as well. Seen to many tv-series unfinished. I am therefore but moderately elated about this news to avoid disappointment later on.
Still.... I can't help but wonder how it all will look on screen :)
