A classic dresser. First one bad, then one good news from the Home Box Office. Of course - depending on which angle you look at. But anyway, HBO announced yesterday that they still commissioned a spin-off project from the world of Game of Thrones.
Casey Bloys, president of the program at HBO, yesterday famously announced a new series to be directed by "Game of Thrones" veteran Miguel Sapochnik and Ryan Condal (Colony) to be executive producer and showrunner. The Boys have confirmed that the new series will be titled House of the Dragon, but also that the story will follow the ideas of Bryan Cogman and the book by George R.R. Martin.
Recall, a few months ago George R.R. Martin and Ryan Condal wrote the script 300 years before those we saw in "Game of Thrones" at a time when the Targaryen family was afraid and trembling of Westeros and when dragons flew freely across the continent. The story will follow the beginnings of the dynasty and will be based on Martin's book "Fire & Blood" which in turn follows Aegon Targaryen, creator of the Iron Throne. Ryan Condal is known as the scriptwriter for the USA's canceled series, Colony.
Of the two potential projects, this one is ... a little more interesting, but we'll see how it all turns out. House of the Dragon has earned ten episodes for the first season, which will not nearly adorn the small screens.
