Will HBO also be giving their audiences other original programming created by Martin? From HBOWatch:
Master storyteller George R. R. Martin has signed a two-year contract deal with HBO. What does that mean? It means he can develop and produce new series for the premium network. That, of course means more dramatic entertainment from this newly appointed producer will hopefully be brought to life.
It is too early to say what projects may materialize out of this new agreement but, it will be fun to speculate a bit. Mr. Martin may come up with a fresh idea but that would take too long to flesh out. Better yet he can draw from the novels and story collections he has already written himself. For example, he could get behind a series of stories he created entitled The Tales of Dunk and Egg, which take place in Westeros before the story we know in GAME OF THRONES.
There are also novels like Fevre Dream (pictured ) that tells of vampires on the Mississippi River during America’s antebellum period. It could be a companion to TRUE BLOOD or replace it when it concludes. Or there are other novels of his like Hunter’s Run and Dying of the Light, which takes place on the dying planet of Warlorn.
This new deal could offer endless possibilities.
