HBO is making a Game of Thrones prequel collection about House Targaryen! We realized that information a pair weeks again, and we’re nonetheless recovering. So far as we are able to inform, the present will zero in on the Dance of the Dragons, the bloody civil struggle that tore Westeros aside over 100 years earlier than the collection as we all know it started. Targaryen vs Targaryen, dragon vs dragon…it’s an excellent yarn.
And who can be telling us this gripping story, primarily based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood? Martin himself was concerned, in fact, and “Battle of the Bastards” director Miguel Sapochnik is available to lend his experience behind the digital camera. But the person who wrote the pilot and the script bible was Ryan Condal, the man behind the sci-fi present Colony. The different day, Martin took to his Not a Blog to acknowledge the onerous work of three different individuals who helped develop the present: Wes Tooker, a author on Colony; Claire Kiechel, a playwright who’s labored on Netflix’s The OA and HBO’s Watchmen; and Ti Mikkel, a author’s assistant at Martin’s personal Fevre River Packet Company, the place she helps develop TV reveals and brief movies.
So what did this dream group do? Martin explains:
They sat with Ryan daily in a author’s room at HBO for months, speaking story, going over drafts, giving notes, correcting errors (not that Ryan or I ever made any, no sir, not us), catching inconsistencies, discussing character and plot, providing concepts and strategies, filling in gaps, breaking down the episodes to come back and drawing up a roadmap for the primary season and all of the seasons to comply with. The HOUSE OF THE DRAGON may by no means have been constructed with out the assistance of Ti, Claire, and Wes, three terrific younger storytellers. They have my thanks, and Ryan’s.
Now is an effective time to remind everybody that, in contrast to the cancelled Game of Thrones prequel present set hundreds of years in Westeros’ previous, HBO has ordered House of the Dragon straight to collection. That means we’re undoubtedly getting 10 episodes of Targaryen goodness, and there’s a good likelihood that is the group that can convey it to us.
Although that’s not for sure. I wouldn’t be too fast to name this “the writer’s room” for House of the Dragon simply but. People who develop a collection within the early phases don’t all the time keep on to write down for it within the longterm, and the producers could but wish to rent extra writers as issues get underway.
Or they’ll keep on for 10 seasons, I dunno. In any case, it’s good to satisfy a couple of of the folks behind the successor to Game of Thrones. Best of luck, all!
