HBO looks ready to reinvigorate the fantasy genre with their adapation of “A Game of Thrones,” set to go into production this June. With just an initial pilot ordered, we kept our excitment about George R.R. Martin’s beloved tale of political intrigue and warring families at bay. But now that HBO has gone medieval on ‘Thrones with a ten episode order, we’re ready to start obsessing about this new series. We sent our band of rogues out into the far reaches of the Seven Kingdoms and they’ve returned with a bounty of spoilers. Now, let’s take a look at the cast who’ll return HBO to its rightful place among network royalty.

5. Richard Madden as Robb Stark

Where You’ve Seen Him Before: Game of Thrones might just be young Scot, Richard Madden’s big break, whose only priors are a few Scottish television series.

His Role in Game of Thrones: First son of Eddard (Sean Bean) and heir to Winterfell. Charactized as honorable and just, Robb makes enemies of former allies when breaks an oath made by someone very close to him on his behalf.

Winter is, indeed, coming.

HBO has greenlighted highly anticipated fantasy series “Game of Thrones.”

The premium network has picked up the project for a first season debut next spring (below is the first released photo from the series). Nine episodes plus the pilot have been ordered. Production will begin in Belfast this June.

From the moment the project was first announced in development, the series based on the George R.R. Martin novels has generated enormous, perhaps unprecedented, online interest for a series at such an early stage.

The sprawling tale set in the mythical land of Westeros tells the story of the noble Stark family who become caught up in high court intrigue when patriarch Eddard (played by Sean Bean) becomes the king’s new right-hand man. The four-and-counting books in the series would each be used as one season of the series.

Unlike many fantasy novels, the “Thrones” series largely avoids relying on magical elements and instead goes for brutal realism — think “Sopranos” with swords. Martin, a former TV writer (“Beauty and the Beast”), writes each chapter as a cliffhanger, which should lend itself well to series translation.

TCA — HBO programming chief Michael Lombardo says the dailies for highly anticipated fantasy series “Game of Thrones” look “fantastic” and the project looks very strong for a series pickup.
“Everything looks fantastic,” said Lombardo, who’s become a fan of the George R.R. Martin books upon which the project is based. “The director got great performances. Unlike a lot of projects like this, everything was shot on location. It has such a rich texture that it looks more expensive than it actually was.”
Game of thrones The network spent $5 million-$10 million on the pilot to bring castle Winterfell to life. Lombardo says executives are “sitting on pins and needles” waiting for a rough cut in two weeks.
“The fantasy is so incidental, it has a very adult tone,” Lombardo said. “You forget it’s fantasy while you’re watching it, and that’s what I love about it.”
The pilot will employ some CGI, for backgrounds, the story’s “direwolves” (a mixture of real animals and CGI) and dragon eggs.
Also, like in the books, each family in the story will have its own color pallet for clothing and armor.
If all goes well, Lombardo said, “Game of Thrones” will be on HBO in spring 2011 — “March or April.”
“I would be surprised if it doesn’t [get greenlit],” Lombardo said. “It has everything going for it.”
