Martin's "A Song of Fire and Ice" series heading for HBO
Variety is reporting that George R. R. Martin's fantasy series "A Song of Fire and Ice" is heading for HBO television. The show will be scripted and exec produced by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, and will use each book as a season of episodes.
Knowing HBO's reputation for quality programs such as Deadwood and Rome, this series will be amazing. But, also knowing how the cost of these shows always get them canceled after a few seasons, I hold little hope that they make it clear through all seven books that are expected from the series.
