Variety reported, HBO has officially greenlighted the pilot order of Game of Thrones prequel.
Jane Goldman is attached to pen the script and serve as a showrunner. She and George R.R. Martin are set to executive produce the series.
You can read the premise of the prequel below:
Taking place thousands of years before the events of “Game of Thrones,” Goldman’s series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend–it’s not the story we think we know.
