HBO to create 'GoT' prequel series
Los Angeles: HBO will create a series adaptation of George R R Martin's 'Tales of Dunk and Egg', which will be a prequel to the events of 'Game of Thrones'.
According to 'Variety', the one-hour show would be based on a series of fantasy novellas which follow the adventures of Ser Duncan the Tall (Dunk) and a young Aegon V Targaryen (Egg) 90 years prior to the events of 'A Song of Ice and Fire'.
Martin had penned three novellas in the 'Tales of Dunk and Egg series' – 'The Hedge Knight' (1998), 'The Sworn Sword' (2003) and 'The Mystery Knight' (2010).
The combined version of the three books was published in 2015 under the title 'A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms'.
However, no writer or talent boarded the project as of now. If the series is locked, it would be the second 'Game of Thrones' prequel to make it to the screen. The network is currently working on 'House of the Dragon', which is slated to premiere in 2022.
'House of the Dragon' will document the buildup to the Targaryen civil war in Westeros that is known as the 'Dance of Dragons'.
