Wow. Couldn’t be more please or surprised. HBO has picked up the rights to George RR Martin’s Fire and Ice series of novels and is going to produce at least one tv series out of it. HBO has been producing excellent episodic television for over 10 years now, generally much better stuff than the broadcast networks, and the Fire and Ice series’ gritty, hard core take on an authurian-themed medieval kingdom is perfect for HBO. I’m really looking forward to this.
