TV News: Game of Thrones Prequel Gets Pilot Order at HBO

Game of Thrones has undoubtedly been huge for HBO and is potentially the biggest show in the history of the cable giant. With the final season closing in, they're currently developing five other projects that will center around their popular property. Now, it looks like they've officially ordered a prequel that will take place thousands of years before the current series and will feature the descent from the Age of Heroes. 

The proposed prequel series is based on a story that Jane Goldman has co-created with founder George R.R. Martin. Goldman will serve as show runner with the show being developed from her teleplay. Daniel Zelman and Game of Thrones' Vince Gerardis will executive produce. At this time, the plot is being kept under tight wraps. 

There is no time frame set for the new series yet. Now we wait.
