Game of Thrones: Prequel Series, House of the Dragon, at HBO

A prequel series based on the Game of Thrones  companion book “Fire & Blood” has been ordered straight-to-series at the premium cabler. The series will be titled “House of the Dragon.”

Set 300 years before the events of “Game of Thrones,” the series tells the story of House Targaryen. Frequent “Game of Thrones” director Miguel Sapochnik will direct the pilot and additional episodes.

HBO has given the show a 10-episode order. George R.R. Martin co-created the series with Ryan Condal. Sapochnik and Condal will serve as co-showrunners and will also serve as executive producers along with Martin and Vince Gerardis.

This marks Sapochnik’s first project as part of an HBO overall deal where he will develop and produce content for both HBO and HBO Max.

He has directed six episodes of “Game of Thrones,” including “Hardhome,” “Battle of the Bastards,” and “Winds of Winter.”
